Really? ??
Cheap ones can be found for a few bucks at Wal-Mart.

Good Craftsman wrenches are found at Sears for $40 or so.

Did you mean winch?

Depends on the application and the winch..... I have a Superwinch 16.5 that was over a $1000 and I have a Warn 8,000 that I picked up for around $450......

I bought the Warn M8000 last year when it was $540 and used it for the 1st hard pull last weekend(I buried my TJ in mud) and it worked perfectly. Best investment I ever made even though it's cheaper now on the web!

I've got a X8000i warn, came with the new jeep but I believe it's a $1100 winch. The model has been replaced with the X9000i. 38 foot per minute line pull, ability to have a wireless controller, and by far go warn! Made in America I believe.

Hey Geoff, my new TJ came with two bestop tops. I know one is a bikini but the other is a heavy duty material, with all sorts of straps. No windows. It looks like it might be an emergency top. The only tag on it is one that says bestop. Is there any other way to tell what in the heck it is?

Yes sir. Excellent for covering your Jeep up when the top is off. Not so great for driving in. In fact, we highly recommend against it.

It's just a tailored car cover. But they're nice.
