I have a mile marker 12,000 on my sploder sport and it pulls me out of anything so far. But If your looking cheaper I know a few guys running the smitty built 8,000 pound ones and they love it. at 299.00 it is a great deal.

yeah the smitty built one is pretty nice.. i wouldent hook it directly to your brush guard.. i would get a front mounted reciever and use that. other wise your gona rip that bar off if you get really stuck. you could also fab a bumper..

I've got the MileMarker E9000. I've had it for quite a few years now and love it. I've never found it to be too weak......my biggest problem is finding a way to anchor myself when winching out my buddies, lol.

Yeah that's what I do, but for some reason, my friends like to play in the mud holes that aren't near any trees, lol.
