I really do not mean to be an ass, but I would recommend you try searching the forums. There have been several writeup on the various systems out there from Racor, Harken, DIY, etc. It comes down to personal preference and funds available. Me personally I think the Racor is the most sturdy and the most flexible system, but it is also one of the most expensive.

I got the Lange. Had the TJ version - the JK version went right in the same place... I was expecting to maybe have to move it, but wasn't necessary.

I think 12' may be the limit for the manual version. If the limit is lower (10'?), you'll have to go with the motorized version, only because of the amount of cable the manaul come-a-long can handle.

I got a Harken Hoister. Haven't received it, yet so I'll report when I get it rigged. Paid $130 for the 12' version.
