Re: MM Winch- want to buy
Thanks for the info. I just received the following email from MM. This seems to clarify the differences in detail.
"The difference between the 70 and the 75 series winch is in the placement of
the valve. The 70 series winch uses a remotely installed valve ( under the
hood of the vehicle), and the 75 series winch has the valve installed on the
winch body itself. We recommend the use of the 75 series winch in most
cases, as it is easier to install. The 70 series winch is used when you
want to use a receiver mount in the front or rear of your vehicle, and
in certain tight applications where there might be a clearance problem. The
75 series winch comes complete with everything except the vehicle adapter
kit ( the connections to your power steering pump and power steering box).
The 70 series winch needs a valve adapter kit that is specific for you
vehicle. They operate identically after installation, they both have power
To mount the 75 series winch on a Wrangler, you need to use our winch
mounting plate, as the valve hits the radiator using any other manufacturers
mount. If you have a mount made by another manufacturer, you need to use
our 70 series winch."
