Comments: 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.

Comments: this is a very good winch.for the price i paid,300$ at 4 wheel parts.and they gave me a mounting plate for free.that i welded to the frame just to make sure nobody gets a 100 lb missle launched at there head if the 4 grade 5 bolts (supplied)break or slip out.

Comments: This is my first Jeep, and I had always wanted a Jeep with a winch. I came across this Winch and read some good reviews about it. I bought the winch and have not had an oppurtunity to use it yet (that sucks), but hope to in the near future.
