      Comments about Warn VR12000 Winch:

      I ended up buying a VR12,000 winch a few years ago & just now really tested it to see what it got... My brother got his 30,000Lb 75 foot boom truck stuck with 8,000Lbs of wood chips in the rear box. The truck got stuck in 6 to 8 inchs of slick *** red Georgia clay... It took about 45 mins or so to get it pulled to where the truck finally started getting grip. The pull was around 70 foot in length & had to use a single cable pull method because I forgot all my shackles @ home. Which it didn't seem to matter to the winch because it never strained once under the almost 40,000Lb load...I really need to get another one to install out back under the bed of my truck & won't have to ever worry about staying stuck anywhere...

      Comments about Warn VR12000 Winch:

      I replaced a failed Smittybilt with this Warn unit. Looks like much better quality for a small step-up in price. Comes with a different remote than in picture. I only use winch maybe 5-7 times a year, this one works great out of the box, only time will tell about longevity, the Smitty XRC lasted barely two years and failed leaving me stranded. I have heard nothing but good about Warn
