Question Where are the used winches?!?!


I have owned my 97 wrangler for about a year and i love it. I am now looking to add a recovery winch but i dont have tons to spend. I would like to pick up a decent used winch to save some $, but i have only been able to find new ones for sale (even on ebay). I am about ready to give up on the idea, but i decided to join a forum first, thinking that someone may be able to help me out. Any info would be great, like a website or something. I have spent hours online and i can still only find high priced new winches. Any ideas???

Man I wish I had gone to BJ U!

Best bet would be craigslist or the local pawnshop. Bet I've only seen 2 or 3 in the last year of the 2 forums I'm on.

Welcome aboard. Best forum around.

Keep on the lookout fella's they are out there. I have a used Warn 9000i with rope bolted to the front of my TJ. Got it used on Ebay for 575 shipped and it was in perfect condition.
