smittybuilt winch?

Does anyone know anything about smittybuilt winches, specifically the XRC-8 Comp Series seen here... XRC-8 Comp Series Winch by Smittybilt and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware ... I'm building a 51 willys so its pretty light weight. I'm used to warn winches but money is kinda of an issue right now and this winch is really cheap for being synthetic rope.

They're imported. If you need customer service it will help if you speak Chinese. Superwinch and Ramsey both make inexpensive winches that you might want to check out before deciding. Another factor to consider is how far you'll have to walk and what it will cost to get your vehicle out if the cheap winch fails.
