I have a suzuki samurai with this mounted on it. I have used the winch around 6 times so far and it works great with enough power feed to it. The suzukis have small power system so it bleeds it dry quick, even with full size truck battery and new power and ground wires. I have sunk that winch under water a few times for more then a few seconds. and had to uses shortly after. Only unstuck jeep type trucks so can't vouch for bigger trucks but I feel if I had the footing it would do fine with enough power

Installed on my 97 Landcruiser w/ ARB. Bought this winch because I didn't fell like spending 1K+ on a Warn. I've used it three times so far and have had no problems from it; 2 single line pulls and 1 dbl line.
