Thanks, I tried that but only got a 1:4 ratio.

In my winch the planetary is 1:157. What they did is they cut the ring gear in half. Half the ring gear stays locked and the other half drives output. I want to avoid cutting the ring gear in an expensive planetary gearset but it seems it's probably the only option to get that crazy high ratio.
