Nice winch. I benn using mine for over 2 years. I hate the old fairlead look. Stong, reliable. I ran additional wires for an in-cab control. Nice if someone else pulls the cable. Good for money if wanting to save a bit, but not built cheap. Doesn't run hot too quickly. Definately enough for my 3100lb. in the mud.

the winch pulls slow and steady, if your not in a hurry its a good one, but be careful because the free/pull switch on mine broke completely off and it was aggravating before that.

It's a great product for the price. Plus, it gives you that bad *** look of a built Jeep, even if you're not.

i have yet to be let down by this winch, i have pulled myself off the snow piles in safeways parking lot to pulling quads out of the "idiot holes" at sandlake, or. I heats up on the long pulls but never slipped or smoked.

I bought this winch on ebay with free shipping and had it within 3 days. Winch works great I have used it numerous times anything from pulling me or someone out of a bad spot to pulling trees out of the ground for landscaping and not once has it given me problems.

Bought it used for $100. Used twice on the first trip out and it worked like a champ.

Great for a wheeler who doesn't winch all the time or have a ton of long pulls. Honestly this winch fits most people in the Jeep world, they just don't want to admit that they don't need the fastest line speed or that they can take brakes and let the winch cool down cause they're not in competition...

Warn quality and reliability without the price... Tabor is to Warn as Toyota is to Lexus. Same manufacturer, same reliability, different name and "trim". Great product
