Winches

So I got my Quardratech catalog yesterday and I seen that they have a new line of winches coming out in May. I'm tiring to decide between to different winches. Here's links to them both.

1. http://www.quadratec.com/products/92122_2000_07.htm

2. http://www.harborfreight.com/9000-lb...ake-68143.html
I've also got a coupon that will make them roughly the same price.

So what does everyone think.

Read through this. Don't skip right to the results, they put one of the ones that failed at the top of the list because of stickers (AKA, advertiser)....

I do remember reading this once before. I do know that the badlands winch did bad in the test. My buddy with a wrangler has one in his and we used it to get me out this past weekend and it did great. Just sayin.
