I have to agree with jgano23!!!!!!!!!!! I bought a cheep off brand winch one time, for an atv. (3000lb winch is just barely enough for a good size atv) needless to say on second time using it, pulling a friend up a hill, the gear striped out causing the atv i was pulling to fall down the hill. It nearly crushed my buddy.
from now on name brand only! WARN is the way to go.
