This thread has jumped all over and back!
I was buying stuff from HF quite a bit there for a while. I figured I'd only need it for that one project or whatever and never use it again. I've been wrong a lot on that. That has made me go for more of the better USA made stuff if I can ever find it! Seems harder and harder to do these days..
As for a winch, I could see myself using it more for odd job type things over self-recovery. I think my CJ is more of a work horse than a toy, so anything I can do to make it more purposeful is a good thing. On that note, I am leaning more towards a good brand name, one that is proven itself in not just reliability and quality of build but in repairs and customer service. I'd hate to buy a starter-brand unit and that brand not make it long, then I would be stuck with no replacement parts...
As for the 8274... if anyone ever finds a good one that may even need a little work (not a totally worn out unit) for a decent price, let me know! I wish I could have gotten the one I found locally, but $700 for it (even though it was an actual Jeep tagged one) was more than I could spend at the time....
