5.0 Make life easy - get enough winch

Awesome winch. Put it on an F250 and it works like a dream. Heavy pulls not a problem. Wireless remote is excellent. I chose it over a more expensive smaller winch and am glad I did.

I couldn't believe the discount that was being offered on this winch. It was too good to pass so i took a chance. I received the winch I ordered on time and in great condition. Thanks for having such a amazing sale!
