Price: $350.00
Pros: Cheap, keeps working
Cons: none so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Debated on buying this winch because it was so much cheaper than other brands. One of the best purchases I've made. 3 years and it just keep chugging along. Never failed to work, never broke a cable. Reliable, I'd buy another.

Price: $340.00
Pros: Insanely cheap, comes with a hitch reciever so the options for mounting are endless and work for almost every application/vehicle, it doesnt have to stay mounted so it stays new AND I have tried stressing this thing out to the max with my JK unlimited and it has never quit. I figure a winch for the cost of a tow bill is a good deal even if you only use it once or twice.
Cons: It's not a Warn.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Insanely cheap, comes with a hitch reciever so the options for mounting it are endless and work for almost every application/vehicle. Meaning, it doesnt have to stay mounted so it stays new. I've tried stressing this thing out to the max with myteeny JK unlimited and it hasn't quit yet. I figure a winch (with a D-ring, fairlead rollers, snatch block, and a remote ALL INCLUDED) being the same cost as a tow truck is a good deal anywhere. Or tow trucks just overcharge.

Price: $400.00
Pros: plenty of power easy to use
Cons: bigger than other winches had to modify winch plate
Recommended? Yes

Comments: It has pulled me out a few times. I have gone uphill with it and pulled a nissan truck out of deep mud with it. Have also towed some trees with it. Once installed it was just as good as any other winch.

Price: $300.00
Pros: it's a winch and came with a snatch block
Cons: slow pull speed, didn't come with the TJ winch mount plate (extra $100) and I've had issues to keep it working.
Recommended? No

Comments: This winch will work for a while... but maybe not long.

I'm about to replace it for one of the new lower priced WARN winches.

This came from SAM's club and was the right price when I got it... but It's going to cost me in the long run once I replace it with something that's not direct from China. =(

Pros: cheap, complete kit
Cons: cheap, slow
Recommended? No

Comments: Do not submerge this winch. I had to rebuild it after the first year. After the rebuild it has worked every time. I used RTV on all the covers to try and keep the water out. The grey powder coat has been flaking for some time so I repainted it. The winch plate had holes for every conceivable application except mounting the winch on a TJ. That was fixed with some carefull measurement and drilling.

Comments: The Price was unbeatable for what all it came with. It is not the fastest pulling winch but it gets the job done with no serious strain at all. It comes with a block and shackle included but I have not been in a situation yet where I see the winch need it for the extra power. It also included a mounting plate included. I was able to fab up a mounting braket to atactch the plate to the frame for under 50 bucks including hardware. Deffently worth the money.

Comments: You can't beat the price. I've had this winch for 3 years now on three different vehicles and haven't had any problems. Its even stopped a whitetail deer from totaling a ford ranger at 80mph and still works just like it did the day i bought it.

Comments: being lazy because the 10k winch is not available in the drop down box. it is the 1st winch I have bought, it seems to work well for me as I learn how to properly use them, though I admit I really do not need 10k of pulling power.
