I purchased this winch about six months ago and have used it just about every other weekend to extract a fellow wheeler. This winch has not let me down yet. I have only been using it wireless, so I can't comment on how it works wired. I know I love the wireless mode. This winch is NO Warn, but nowhere near the cost as well. It definitely serves its purpose and honestly, I did not expect much from it. I have been thoroughly surprised at its ability to pull some pretty stuck rigs out of the rocks and while it does bog down under severe load, it still keeps moving and continues to work week after week. Had I known I would use it this much, I would have bought a Warn. However, after using this for six months, I would not hesitate to buy this one again. Great winch for a good price point. Only negative I can find with this is the fact it did not have a removable shackle. I had to cut it off to install a Factor 55 flatlink.

Installation was a snap
Received this as a christmas give. Installation was a breeze less than 30 minutes. The unit looks great on the front of the jeep. I havent had a chance to use it to get myself out of a bind but just having it there is a plus.

Great looking winch, but will it last?
After a LONG wait to receive this winch, I installed it and spooled in the line using the wireless remote. A few days later I went to show my friend how the wireless remote worked, and it wouldn't work anymore. The winch control worked as long as the cable was plugged in to the winch, but the wireless part no longer functioned. I called and got a replacement shipped out, and now have a working remote, but it makes me wonder how long it, or the rest of the winch will last.

The installation was great.
The wireless remote battery came loose and caused the remote not to work, even in the wired mode.
I re-inserted the battery and it worked fine.
The winch looks really good on the bumper.
I have played with the winch in the yard but have not really needed it yet.
