Price: $299.99
Pros: Cheap, Great Intro winch
Cons: Slow, heavy, made in China...
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Not a bad little winch for the price. Got the 2nd generation that seemed to solve some of the issues people had with the first one. For an entry level winch this is the way to go.

Recommended? No

Comments: Got it from a friend new in box. On 5th or so use and about 9 months. Motor was water clogged. I called Superwinch, a new motor cost $297. Not worth my time.

Price: $350.00
Pros: Cheap. Works.
Cons: Noisy. Slow.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The cable retaining screw came out after the second pull. I should have checked it beforehand, but so should have Superwinch.

Works for my needs. All recoveries went smoothly. Remote is sturdy enough and mates well enough. Glad I bought it.

Price: $379.00
Pros: Good price, good warranty. Not a smittybilt.
Cons: Not very fast.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Got mine from Rokmen, shipped really quick. The instructions sucked but it's not hard to figure out how to work it, and it came pre-wired. It isn't very fast but works well so far.

Price: $399.00
Pros: Easy install
Cons: Broke on first use... gonna see how well they take care of me. will post comment of how it went Called the factory, they wont cover it due to water damage want me to pay 100 for shipping there and 100 shipping back plus repairs.
Recommended? No

Comments: I really hope i dont regret saying i would recommend this or that it was good.. it broke the first time i tried to use it... Pulled about 5ft then just shut down... gonna see how well superwinch handles the situation! ill do a post of some sort after i talk to them today 12-2-09

After a few months of waiting for unfilled promises Ive given up on superwinch and switching to warn. they dont protect against water... which hello stupid its gonna get wet its on the front of a JEEP we actually get a little wet. Wouldnt recommend this winch for anything! 3-18-2010

Price: $400.00
Pros: gets you unstuck
Cons: doesn't have air compressor but hey..... its not a warn
Recommended? Yes

Comments: i have used this winch to get me out of some pretty bad spots. my jeep is pretty hire and i was pushin mud with my front bumper and it still got me out and up a hill. its a great winch at a great price. i do recommend runnin a dual battery though... it will drain one pretty fast.

Price: $299.99
Pros: Looks Good, Works Good, Cheap
Cons: Probbly won't last forever. There has to some reason its hundreds cheaper than premium winches
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have yet to really punish this winch, but for the price you can't go wrong. I have had good luck with SW products before. When you do push it too far and break it, parts are available and they're easy to fix. Looks good too on my Gorilla clone eBay mount plate.

Price: $400.00
Pros: best bang for buck
Cons: The warranty service is bad... I called one day for some gears... they wanted me to send it in.. Called month later for a motor. just faxed over the reciept and they sent new one out. depends on who you talk to.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Awsome winch for the price. Keeps on pulling. Pulled a Ram Charger from a nasty pickle no problem. Warranty not much, but you get what you pay for.
