Awsome winch for $250.00. It hasn't left me standed. Even yanked a full sized ford out that was bumper deep in beach sand.

Not a bad little winch to start out with. It has helped me out of a few sticky situations. A little on the slow side, but what do you expect for 300 bucks! At the time of purchase I wasn't wheeling as much as I would like and couldn't justify dropping a grand for a Warn. Now that I'm hitting the trails a little more regularly it may be time to upgrade.

Great winch for the money! I made my own winch plate so I saved some money there. I use it for pulling trees for firewood. Definately would get another one!!!!

I did some research and found that 95% of the wheelers that have a Smittybilt had only good things to say about them.

Well worth the money I paid for it, works good for the average off-roader. Would recommend to anyone.
