Comments about Warn16.5ti Thermometric Self-Recovery Winch:

I thought at first, that the 16.5 may be a little overkill... But it's definately better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it. Highly recommended... This thing is a Beast.


Great product-just buy somewhere else

Comments about Warn16.5ti Thermometric Self-Recovery Winch:

I purchased this winch and hidden bumper kit because I thought Warn was the best of the best. I was dissapointed when the extension wire for the winch was not in the box. [...] I contacted Warn. A month later I am still waiting for the extension to arrive. But hey, it almost looks cool. Except for the rubber band holding the wire rope in place.
