Pros: Price
Cons: The electrical box on top wouldn't fit correctly, had to turn it around backwards to fit with my Mopar bumper.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Installed this winch on a Mopar bumper. The electrical box would not fit correctly, had to turn it around so the wires are on the front instead of the back. It was too close to the grill to fit correctly.

Cons: Noisy

Comments: This Winch seems to be worth every penny so far. I sprang for the two year unlimited warranty (I don't normally do this) but figured It may be worth it. Winding speed seems adequate - Slow and controlled.

Comments: I got it in March 2005 and switched my wire cable on March 2007 with a Viking synthetic winch line thats 3/8"x 90' with 10" line protector. The breaking strength on the Viking line is 19,600lbs. I also have the Excel Yellow safety hook and my fairlead is Aluminum by SpiderTrax
It an awesome winch, pulls strong and finishes the job. It is slow but, It does it's job perfectly. I have used it many times and have not had a single problem with it. I do test my winch every month so, it can work properly. I also grease all the parts and use Di Electric grease on the electrical parts so, It will not get rusted and keeps water from getting into it. I use my winch for emergency usages & for major recoveries.
I Love My Chicago Electric 9,000lbs winch

Pros: Cheap and solid
Cons: "Off brand"
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought a HF winch about 3 years ago and it's been a solid unit (although very little use). They're cheap but seem to be made along the lines of a Mile Marker type winch. I'd buy one again in a minute!
