Seems like it's actually a decent brand, I hadn't heard of them selling winches though.

The winch looks good, same as many "brands" but definitely better than the HF crap.
BUT - Hussler is dead on - why spend that kinda money on a gamble? If it was $399 I could see considering it, but that money will buy a Warn M8000, or other quality brands.

if i could get a warn winch around here for that kind of $$$$$. the local 4x4 place has warn but the lesser priced ones have un-rebuild-able parts in them. but ha,its a warn.i guess i am not into spending a $1000.00 for a winch unless theres logs tied at the other end ,big logs

Here is another option if someone is interested.

I recently got a Warn M8000 from a link given in the "General Jeep & Off-Road Equipment".
Warn M8000 Self-Recovery 26502 Winches - StreetSideAuto
At $539.95 shipped
Use code: SAVE10
Gets you down to $485.95 with free shipping. I checked the code before posting and it still works.
Warn has a $25 mail in rebate too until 12/31/10

Down to $460.95 shipped for a Warn is not too bad.
It comes with the little steel mount for the solenoid pack too.

For the money you can't beat price and lifetime warranty of a Warn M8000. Allot of the guys run them down here and beat the hell out of them regularly. As long as you don't take your winch scuba diving it will last a long time.

Get the warn m8000 because its a warn, has a lifetime warranty, and because as the others said, can be had for cheaper than the "Keeper". I have the warn and it has not failed me the three times i've had to use it for self recovery, or the many times i've used it to move downed trees and such. You just can't beat Warn winches imo

I agree go with the Warn deal above, Warn makes some really great products and there customer service is top notch. I have run warn winches for years on my ATVs and use them regularly.

i know alot of people run the Warn 8000, my question is on strength. i always thought you wanted to double the weight of your vehicle, i know TJs vary in weight but i would think a 9500lb would be better?
