Champion winch at sams
I wanted to toss this out for you guys. I have had a couple Champion winches on the scrap trailers and while I am not going to tell you I have never broken one, they are a good winch for the money. Sams is offering a 10000lb winch with a 2 inch reciever mount. for 366.00 That is getting to the edge of what I will pay for the cheapie winches but I didn't have a spare and I was tired of the amp hog Tmax spending time on my trailer insted of on my jeep where it belongs.
Just letting you guys know. They are no warn or ramsey but for the money they are hard to beat.
I had a control silanoid go out in my last one and it was repaired under waranty and then I let the line coil up on one side and broke the case. Again they waranteed it but were out of the winches so I got my money back. I absolutely beat that winch hard.
I will likely return my tmax to the jeep and get this one on the trailer in the next week and see how it preforms. I use that trailer every day for my side gig and will have a recomdation shortly.
If I like it I might get another on for the front of my superduty. When it gets stuck it usually means the loader has to start up.
Ya only go around once, best to enjoy it the first trip.
