4.0 Love the remote

So far it has performed well. I love the remote control,I hope l don’t set it down and leave it somewhere. The winch is fairly well built but the supports over the reel could be stronger and more space is needed under the supports for more clearance for the cable as it rubs if not wound neatly. It’s difficult to have the cable lay evenly if it’s pulling to one side. I have only used it a few times so time will be a better judge.

5.0 Good Product

Good product, packaging was a little beat up, but not damage to the winch. Easy to install and use. If you are going to use a license plate holder for the from you will need to get longer bolts for the flare head. The included bolts are barely long enough for good thread engagement.
