Just got it, haven't had a chance to test it yet. However i think for the small size of the my CJ5, i think it will do just fine for me.

i haven't had to use it yet so it would be hard to rate it other than ease of install and good looks

Great winch used it quite a bit just wish the cable was longer. Just as good as other name brands but a lot cheaper.

Haven't had to use it much yet...clutch is backward...but for the price you can't pass this one up.

great winch for the money. $280 shipped to my door. the first time i used it it more than paid for itself. just cause it's not expensive doesn't mean it's complete junk.

For the money, I say you can't beat it. It may not be the fastest, or strongest on the market, but If you have a limited budget like the rest of us. i would recommend this winch.

Good at the price. Be aware of what you're buying and you won't be disappointed.

So far I am happy with this winch. I only paid $273 with free shipping, so I could not pass it up. Installation was easy and everything was in the box

pretty damn good for 300 bucks, i havent used it in the worst of situations because i havent got stuck that bad yet. but i did test it out a bit and it works very well. i guess somethings that are cheap can be good
