Question Smittybuilt X20 Winch or Warn Question

Brand new jeeper here with a strong desire to own a winch. Prior to joining this site I thought of purchasing a Smittybuilt X20 waterproof winch instead of a Warn mostly because of the cost and the assumed effects of the salt water and air in Fla.
Does anyone have experience with the X20, is it made in the USA, and how does it compare to the Warn line (other than price of course).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

you posted in the wrong area, im sure a mod can move it for you. To answer your question, all smittybilt product are made in china. The x20 is no different, WARN is the top of the line winch made in the USA and in the long run you will be glad you got it!!

Some of the parts are mace in China, it's assmbled in the US.
I don't think you'll find many 100% made in America products for vehicles anymore
