If you'll take a suggestion from an "Old Fart"... Spend the money for a good, American made winch, not a "reverse engineered" chinese made "thing". That leaves Ramsey and Warn, both pricey but well made and well engineered. I don't think you can go wrong with either of them. I say this because you like to wheel alone, and dependability and reliability should be your first consideration. I'm nearly 68 yrs. old, and I still go out and wheel alone on occasion, so I kinda know what you're looking at. Get a recovery kit with tree saver, snatch block, etc.; it'll be used a lot! An axe and/or small chain saw can make your day, too. Carry a military "trenching tool" as a minimum for a shovel; you won't regret it. I also have a tire plug kit, valve stems, small air compressor (hooks directly to battery), basic tools, and some other stuff. You'll figure out some things unique to your situation. Now go have some fun!!

Thanks for the advice. I was looking at the Warn M8000.

I actually had my old trenching blade with at the time... yea, that got stolen too.

Lesson learned, don't go wheelin alone.

The Jeep is fixed now and road ready again.

m8000 is a good one, I have had 2 on 2 different Jeeps and never managed to bog it down yet! Excellent buy for the money!

Indeed, your Jeep looks good! Glad to hear. But still, those guys suck.

Man, sorry to see that damage...glad u were able to get it back on the road...there's not much worse you can do to a Jeep owner than trash his rig...that gets ya right in the heart. As for the winch, I don't know how many times I've used mine to get me out of a temporary stoppage of off-roading. Right now I have a Bulldog 8000 but plan on upgrading to a Warn 9.5ti

I learned my lesson on over zealous clicking the hard way. Especially when something like the one above that links to three different websites.

Don't blame you one bit. I am an IT Manager and Facebook seems to be the method of choice to deliver viruses now. I don't know how many users come to me and say I was on facebook and clicked on something and now my computer is acting funny. I blocked it completely from my network!
