Need advice

Hey folks. I'm in need of a winch, but my budget is under $500. I have a 2010 2dr Rubicon. I'm looking at Smittybilt now because of the price. Are they any good? If not, any suggestions? Any input would be appreciated.

I have the 8k model, other then getting some flack from a few buddy's for having a China winch on my jeep I have no complaints about it. I just tell them it's for when they get stuck not me.

I've probably used it a total of 15 times pulling other vehicles out of the snow. It hasn't let me down yet.
