made mounting the winch onto the jeep much easier. you must have a good mount kit, as winches buildup a lot of pressure on the mount plate.

also, you should always pull straight if possible, the jeep frame is weak, you can bend the jeep frame before you know it when making a heavy pull.
nice looking Jeep and thanks for the hint i never knew that was possible lol

Go with what you can afford, most likely anything you choose will last a very long time!

Pretty much. I also always winch with the engine running just to be sure I dont drain it. While you are hooking up the wires it may be a good idea to replace some battery cables or at least make sure the terminals are in good shape. My wires ran through the grill and along the grill brace rod to the battery.

Don't waste your money on a cheap winch. They WILL fail at the worst possible time and you will end up either walking or asking a guy in a Chevy for a pull.....

The moment you find out that your cheap chinese winch doesnt work is the moment you need it the most, what about when you need replacement parts? Saving money is always good but when you need to get off the trail or stuck a winch that will perform is priceless. The two major problems to cause a winch to fail is lack of use and abuse.

Just get the Engo and put a warn sticker on it. Thats what I did, works for me, used it a few times pic of first time, out alone,
All the other puddles were shallow with a good bottom, not this one.
The switch in the controller is a piece of crap, but I used the wire and made a handle for a switch from mcmaster carr.
Plus I got a wireless remote off ebay for like $12.00, with a cool little keyring remote, it works so far, batteries probably be dead when i try it next?
I got my winch mount from Bersk, Its nice.

People need to understand that all things need maintainence, your Jeep, your car and your winch. You just don't jump in any rig and drive it and ecpect it to last forever.
