Check out these winches. I highly recommend the 12000 lbs model. I have one and it has a few dozen pulls on it and some of them have been extremely hard pulls. I have never had a problem with mine and the newest model has an improved wireless remote that looks more durable (mine still works fine though). Here's a link to their website and a bit of text from their site for those who don't like links
I personaly know the guy who sells these (duncan) and he is a great, stand-up guy who stands behind his product. Not sure where you live but these are sold out of Burlington, Ontario, Canada. If you are from the U.S then the currency exchange will work in your favor and the cost is $100 less.

Our Winches are designed to go " head to head "with other Brand name winches on the market. Many of these Manufacturers are introducing "economy" or value priced winches to compete with the TW12 Winch ( in price) these "economy " or value priced winches are powered undersized motors and in general are built with lesser quality parts than are used in their other Winches and our Winches.
Even with the lesser quality parts they are still priced higher than our Winch. We ask you to do some research and you will agree that when you check out the competitors line of winches that you will find that not only is the titan Winch a superior product Dollar for Dollar but the features and quality of the parts is by far the best buy on the Market at only $ 540.00 CDN for the TW12 Winch it is an outstanding buy and yet sells less than even the " economy " Winches."
