Comments: I think it started to rust the day I opened the box. Mechanically it's fine, but I want to replace the line with synthetic. Probably should have spent another $200 and got the Warn M8000

Comments: Smittybilt instructions suck horribly, but the winch comes packaged well and is a solid product. The engines a little slow, but slow and steady wins the race, its slow torque will pull you out of anything.

Comments: I've used the winch a number of times to pull my overzealous butt out. No problems, but very very slow. Hey, $299.00, I'm not complaining

Comments: Although I initially had some problems with the solenoid, it seems to work pretty good. The hardware tends to rust pretty easy, but their phone support is great and will fix the problem by sending stainless hardware if you give them a ring. Overall, not the best winch out there, but for $299 it's a pretty good deal. I would have rather spent around $200-250 more and gotten the Warn M8000. If you have the extra money, I would go for the Warn instead.
