Pros: Synthetic rope, wireless remote, 3 yr warranty
Cons: None at this time
Recommended? Yes

Comments: 10,500 lb waterproof winch shipped to my door for under $500!!

I know the old saying "you get what you pay for" but in this case that may be wrong. There is nothing negative I can find about this winch but I guess only time will tell. Only very positive reviews.

Price: $450.00
Pros: Synthetic Winch rope, waterproof, wired and wireless remote
Cons: None so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I can't really talk from experience because this is my first winch. I can def say that this has saved my butt on many occassions. I have pulled myself out of water that was over the top of my winch and it didn't even hesitate at all. One time i went out mudding by myself and got caught in a mud slide. My jeep was hanging off the side of a big drop off, it was dark and i couldnt find anything to hook my winch to so i had to leave it there over night. I was expecting my jeep not to be there the next day but it was. I ended up finding a group of bushes (it was the only thing in sight) on a bluff above my jeep and tied up to that. I started winching as my rear end dropped. As the winch pulled it lifted the whole front end of my jeep a few feet off the ground. Ended up getting out of there and still had my jeep in one piece because of that winch. I have recommended it to a few people in my jeep club, they are using it and like it too, no problems so far.Mine is only about a year old so time will tell.

Pros: Very strong, love the winch rope. Also love the wireless remote!
Cons: Doesn't seem quite as fast as advertised but it still gets the job done very nicely
Recommended? Yes

Comments: So far i rate it excellent. Only got a few heavy duty pulls on it yet so not real sure on durability. Does have a three year warranty though so we'll see how it goes. Great bang for the buck.

Comments: i took a gamble and bought this winch of ebay knowing absolutly nothing about it and so far its been the best investment ive made to my jeep. ive had it installed for about 3 months and have done a moddest ammount of winching with it. it has been fully submerged in watter and mudd but pulls strong every time. i havent done any really hard core winching with it yett but when i do ill be sure to let you guys how it gos! (i didnt give it an excellent star rateing because i feel i havent owned it long enough)
