Someone tell me that I need to go buy this winch. :ROFLMAO:

I think its a good deal for the money (I can get it for $480 after their coupon) and I have heard good things about the new one.

There is also one at our local Harbor Freight and I haven't seen one in months.

I use Harbor Freight for some things, but I would never in a million years trust a HF winch based of all the negative things I've heard from people that own them. One guy I know with one has had it fail 5 times in a year!

Just pull your line every other month and spool it back up under tension to keep the winch up and running. The only time I've had a winch fail was due to letting it sit too long without using it. Have fun on the trails!

Well, I bought it. (Sorry Chris :ROFLMAO: I feel like I've disappointed my dad)

It has excellent reviews. However, if it does crap out I will just get a higher quality one. :)

Got it installed. Pulled the Jeep to spool the line properly. Seemed to do a good job!

I'm considering it and the Bull Dog winch plate and fairlead plate. The reviews of that particular winch are very good in general. At handful have encountered any trouble, and those that did that I found were with the remote. Of course I'm slightly biased - there's Harbor Freight quite handy.

I purchased this winch for my wife’s JK, used a couple of times and works great. Of course only have had it about 6 months so no idea on long term. The chord for the remote for some reason just falls out. I ended up taking one piece of electrical tape to one side of the chord, hasn’t happened again. I have a SB winch on my JK so figured we will have one of each and see what happens between the two of them.
