I finally had a chance to test this by extracting a car from a deep ditch off the highway. It pulled slow and steady and removed the car with ease. Reminded my of the wrecker we had at my fathers gas station in the 80's.

A Good Winch
I've only had this on my Jeep for a couple weeks and have not used it yet. It was easy enough to install on my Jeep and the battery cables were long enough to reach the battery. I have this mounted in my Warn Elite Front Bumper.
In 1948, Arthur Warn founded Warn Industries to construct locking hubs for surplus World War II Jeeps. Ten years later, the Warn winch was manufactured to fill the need for a reliable recovery tool to aid off-roaders stuck in challenging situations. Since then, Warn has grown to offer a wide range of gear with the hallmarks of durability and affordability. 1988 spawned the aftermarket industry's first ATV winch and today their PowerSports line of winches ranks among the most esteemed in the industry and jeepers call on Warn for electric, hydraulic and severe duty components that get the job done.
