PTO Winch

Has anyone installed one on their 6.7? I've been looking at getting a winch and remembered my truck came with a PTO and figured I'd use it lol. Any input would be much appreciated.

My buddy had a milemarker on his obs with a PTO and that thing was bad to the bone... We used it to load logs and other gigantic heavy things. The 4X4 purists say that they are no good because you obviously need the engine running to have any power but its been my experience that even with an electric winch the batteries are dead in about 3 seconds without help from the alternator. He ordered his directly from milemarker and it came complete with everything needed. Hope this helps but I say go for it.. hydro over electric is no comparison in pulling and long duty cycles.

I cant imagine you could go wrong. The only downside has already been pointed out. Where do you even get a pto winch?
