I have the Warn 8,000lb winch. Pulled my cherokee out of some nasty sticky stuff. Havnt mounted it on the ranger yet.
The way I look at it is that when I need to use the winch, I really really need it. Mainly as Im ussually by myself. Thats not exactly the time I wanna find out that the cheap chinese winch is goona konk out on me.
Sorry but a winch isnt the spot to go cheap.
You can get a new warn low profile 8,000 lb winch for $600.
I had a guy help pull me out a while back. My winch cable an straps werent quite long enough so he hooked his winch on to mine. He had a T-MAX brand winch. While it worked, it was SLOOOOWWWWW.
Another decent winch is the Older Warn model 8274. That is a quick winch, although it is rather tall.
