winch situation

So ive been saving a bit of cash, basically not a whole lot, but im looking to do a bumper/winch for my next mod. I've found this Superwinch terra 45. Its sold on some jeep websites, but its listed as an atv/utv winch. Just curious if anyone has ever had one or has exprience with one of these winch cause you can't beat that price ($211). i don't go trail riding or mudding a whole lot, maybe once a month or so. Some input would be great, thanks in advanced.

No. does not have a high enough load.. You want a winch that is min 8000lbs for a wrangler.

X2, you need no less than 8,000 lbs. of winch capacity for a Jeep. 8,000 to 9,500 lbs. of capacity is the most commonly recommended range of winch load capacities.

Harbor freight has a 9000lb badland for 299 usd. Quadratec has a q9000 for 289 usd. I don't think you can beat that easily.
