Buy once (Warn), cry once. Ill let you in on a little tidbit that may or may not still exist. My dad bought a 10k warn through Vice Designs for his Rebel. They were out of stock, so they let him have the 12k at the 10k cost.

I don't know what the price difference is, but back in the day myself and most of my off road club ran Ramsey winches. Never had a problem with them on any of our vehicles... and we actually used them pretty hard at times. I'm out of that game for the most part now so I don't know how the price of a Ramsey compares to Warn. Just a thought.

I recently got my Dodge a Warn Winch from 4wheelonline. I highly recommend it.

Buy Warn, but buy the version made in the US. They have a budget version made in China, don't buy that version. 12K and syndetic rope. Great winch, used it a lot on my Jeep.
