This is pretty interesting.

4x4 experts any feedback if you have tried this?
Why is that I don't see it amongst the enthusiasts?
These, in my opinion, are very indication specific winches.

The moment you are bogged down below the tyres you are in trouble or if you are in a tight spot it won't be accessible. Plus these can only be used in straight line. Angled pulls and double line pulling won't be possible.

Why you do not see much enthusiasm is because this would address specific type of problem but I think would be great for a two wheel drive vehicle.

Also its not deployable instantaneously and in all situations. I am supposing once you are stuck then first you need to loosen and remove all wheel lugs and tighten them after adding the rope drum lugs. Though this is addressed by leaving having special lugs already added to all wheels.

Though point raised by Tejas of angle of anchor is addressed by the front wheel ring attachment to guide the rope.

Will need lockable diffs to work.

Other than difficulties mentioned before, reversing. And moment wheel gets traction line is going to go majorly slack.

Correct Sutripta.

Also you need to shift to 2wd to use with the front guide. If all four wheels move, you are going to twist the cable badly and break it unless the front 'O' ring is freely rotatable.

Also I wouldn't do any angled pulls on this! The friction on the rope with the front attachment is going to be a lot.
