I got this winch for my 1998 GMC Jimmy about a year ago. I've used it several times around town, as well as once to pull a 4 door Tahoe out of Soup Bowls at Uwharrie National Forrest. The one time that it really proved itself was on a full size Chevorlet Silverado 1500. I got the call that 2 people were stuck in a mud hole and no one could get to them with a tow rope. First I pulled out a Nissan Xterra sitting on it's frame, and the winch didn't even flinch. Next was the Chevy. He was buried past his axles and his tires were just spinning. I strapped my rear hitch to a tree and hooked my winch to his rear hitch. When I started winching my truck started squatting and my custom steel bumper started flexing, but the winch didn't hesitated. After a few seconds the Chevy started sliding sideways and up out of the hole. We unhooked and he somehow managed to slide back in to the same hole. We did it all over again, and again the winch performed perfectly.

The winch itself is strong, everything works as it should, the controller is robust and has stood up to getting wet and being thrown around in my toolbox.

CONCERNS: The finish of the winch hasn't stood up perfectly, but that may be the environment I use it in. I am on the beach weekly, so it gets spray from salt water and salt air constantly. The polished silver parts have surface rust, and the black painted parts are flaking off. To be fair, my friend has a Warn winch and it is doing the same things.

I am using a roller fairlead that has light tabs in it, so I don't know how well the hawse fairlead would work with steel cable instead of synthetic rope.

Overall I am very happy with this winch. I would not hesitate to buy it again.

**UPDATE** 8/20/13
This winch is still awesome.

This winch has helped my out about a dozen times in the last year since it was purchased. For the price, I couldn't be happier. A little while back I had to pull a 9000 lb diesel truck out of a frozen mud hole. Once I had my vehicle anchored to a tree, the little Superwinch prevailed even at it's maximum rated capacity. The only weak point of this winch is my battery setup, but that really isn't a weak point of the winch at all. In conclusion, I couldn't be happier with the purchase for the price.

Delivery from Amazon was fast and winch came in good condition. Installion was easy and it worked fine out of the box. Pros: Price , quality , name brand , purchase and shipping ease. Cons: I wish it came with a roller fairlead but I can't complain because I knew that before ordering. I have owned it now for a few weeks , pulled some large trees out of the woods and a 3/4 ton pickup out of a ditch with over 2 feet of snow. Overall : a good buy and I have no regrets.

I was in the market for a winch to mount on the deck of an open car trailer and even though I did not want a winch rated at 8500#, this winch was far cheaper than a no-name winch of a lesser load capacity, so I bought it. Out of the box this winch is HEAVY! I think it's close to 85LBS. When I initially went to mount the winch on the deck, I found that you also need to purchase the mounting plate because the steel piece that the cable glides through (that comes with the winch) will ONLY bolt onto the mounting plate and not the front of the winch. The mounting plate was an additional $90+ and weighs 20LBS in itself.

Here come the important details... To mount the winch, you have to pull all the cable (free-spool) out of the winch to get your fingers into the tiny holes to fit the nuts into. No big deal. Here is the first problem I had with the winch. My buddy and I engaged the winch to coil in the winch line and it didn't work. We checked all the connections and everything was fine. Once I hit the top of the winch with my fist, it started right up! I didn't use the winch until weeks later and I had the same problem with the unit not working. Once again, I tapped the top of the winch and was able to pull my first car onto the trailer. As soon as I got home and had some tools in front of me, off came the plastic box that covers the main battery leads. I could not believe what I found. Three of the six nuts that are used to fasten something electrical were laying at the bottom of the wiring box and the other three were loose (like hand-tightened loose). Once I reattached and tightened everything the winch worked flawlessly.

Aside from the wiring issue, my only other complaint is that the handheld remote is only 15 feet long.

Im gonna have to give this winch 5 stars.... I usually dont even write a review for stuff I buy on amazon and I must say I buy a lot. I ordered this winch with 2 day shipping and received it in 1. I have a winch bumper made by shrockworks and while this wasnt the easiest thing to install... It was one of the more easier thing's that I have installed to my 2010 4runner trail edition. I took my truck 2 days later to rausch creek in north easter PA. Had a great time until I was teatering over a rock under 2 feet of mud! haha Needless to say we pull out the winch cable and tied it up a medium sized tree. a couple of short bursts on the winch and I was out of the mud. It was almost too easy! Now when I ride I will keep the activator switch hooked up before I enter an area and keep it in the window so I can control it.

I will say one slightly bad thing about this winch package though.... I need 4 slightly longer bolts as my winch bumper has thick steel right in front for where it sits... Went to Lowe's and picked up 4 of em for 5 bucks... not bad. Got some lock-tite as well so it NEVER comes un-done.

Bought this with 2 bud built shackles(very nice and cheap aswell), and a high-lift jack for around 50 bucks which is a great price. and works realy well!

One last thing... this winch obviously isnt a warn... but if your not doing expeditions across Antarctica then save yourself 800 bucks and buy this heavy duty- highly reliable winch... You'll be happy you did!
