I recently purchased a 8000lb Gorillia Winch and a winch mount for my TJ. I purchased the winch off ebay for around $350.00 shipping included. For the winch mount I was also going to purchase off ebay but found the perfect one on ebay only to find out the manufacture was only about a hour from my house (A to Z Fabrications) so I drove out there and picked up the winch mount for about $140.00. It took a mere 45 minutes to install. Went out the the mountains the past to days this weekend and it worked awesome. I couldn't be happier. The reason im posting this is so poeple can know that buying a $600.00-700.00 winch (name brand) plus the fact that you still have to by the winch mount on top of that price, doesnt always have to be the case. I went cheaper and I had my doubts but to my surprise this beast has absolutely no problems pulling me out of anything I get into. I also noticed there werent to many posts about Gorillia Winches b/c I was trying to do some research on them but came up with nothing. SO here ya go for those people looking up Gorillia Winches.

Price: $300.00
Pros: inexpensive, tough, wireless controller
Cons: none so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought this used off CL with the winch plate for $300. It looked like it had been mounted but never had the cable unspooled. I used it last year while I was at Crawl 4 the Cure to pull the TJ in front of me off a rock and then had to pull myself over the same rock. Worked great and didn't seem like it strained to do it. Installation was easy, the only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars is that I have been trying for a year to get a ProMark Offroad(new company name for Gorilla) neoprene cover for it and they haven't had them in stock.

Comments: Read about gorilla winches on jeep forum. Looked then looked them up a found that they are now Promark. Thought the sale price was fantastic $299.00. The mounting plate for my CJ was $80 and shipping for this 85lbs. beast was FREE. At this time have not used it in the field but hopefully I can update this review.
