Winch thoughts

I'm looking at this winch and wondering if anybody knows pros/cons about them ? 4x4ROCKSHOP.com - (877) 4x4-ROCK

I like the looks and mainly, I like the price. I'm not a gully diving, rock climbing off roader. Instead, I would mainly be using it for things such as pulling something from a tree high enough to back a trailer under whatever it is, hoist a deer in a tree for processing and maybe once in a blue moon, have it available in case I should get stuck in mud.

that is a really good price for an 8500 lb winch, but i am skeptical of it. rugged ridge makes good products, but it seems like a "get what you pay for" situation. if you are not planning on using it all of the time, it will probably be ok for you. you just shouldn't get it expecting it to perform and last as long as a Warn.
