Omg i won!

I signed up for the chance to win a Smittybilt XRC8 on winchdepot.com and just got an email saying I won, now I normally would not believe such a thing but I called the company and they did say that I won! Ive never had a winch, always wanted one but never had the money saved for one, I'm so excited

Very cool, congrats. I won a Milemarker hydraulic winch 8-9 years ago at a 4x4 event, that was very cool too. It was so heavy I could barely get it out to my Jeep.

Enjoy that winch!

Didya ever hook it up? I've seen them on display pulling clevis's apart....just seemed like an awful lot of plumbing liability to me. And the worst part I thought would be the engine wasn't able to run, then your left sitting there.

No, I immediately sold that Milemarker hydraulic winch in favor of keeping my trusty Warn HS9500i winch installed. I did not want an uber-slow winch like that, especially since it wouldn't work without the engine running. So far, I've had to use my Warn winch at least three times when I couldn't start my engine for various reasons.

just as the rest have basically put it.... if it were not for bad luck, i would have no luck at all. I win by having a great family etc... but anything else? LOSER!

enjoy that winch.... although to be honest, my guess would be that there are probably about 8% of winch owners that actually use them.
