I think they are more of a commercial/industrial winch than a recovery winch. Which could be good or bad. I would assume as long as they are equipped with the right solenoids and the box is in a good spot under the hood or something they would be alright. Warns commercial/industrial winches are the heaviest duty ones they make and are like 3 grand and damn near bullet proof...

I'd search and see if you can find out if they're 24v or 12v. If they're industrial, they may be 24. I've never hear of them, just my .02

Paccar/Braden Carco manufacture commercial winches for use in heavy recovery equipment and cranes....Many of them are hydraulic/electric. They are manufactured near Tulsa, OK. They are incredibly heavy.

What size cable is on it? May just be the pic but the cable looks small.

The motor housing on the left looks like thick heavy steel too

Looks to me like an early a Low Mount Mechanical. Do you have a nameplate on the winch.
