Add a winch to the front of your 2004.5-2005 GM 2500HD/3500HD to keep yourself from getting stuck on the trail. Electric winches that operate off your vehicle's battery are most common, cost-effective, and easiest to install. Not only does a winch look cool and add function to your truck, it can be a lifesaving tool while you're off-road. When sizing a winch for your truck multiply your Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) by 1.5 and ensure the capacity exceeds or meets that number. Hydraulic Winches require a hydraulic pump and provide unmatched efficiency and durability, but at a higher price and require a more permanent installation. In addition to off-road recovery, it is common to use winches around the farm, jobsite, any many other useful applications.
