My LOVING girlfriend got me a winch for Christmas(!) Its one of those Milemarker electric, well, lets just say "cost effective" ones! I was pequided by thge price(400), and had heard decent things about them. I figured, i've only been stuck a handfull of times anyway, so it should last fine with a little TLC.. She told me she decided to get it for me, because a few months ago I got us stuck in a drainage ditch, and we spent several hours in the middle of nowhere, while I cranked on the ol' hilift. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] Even though I did all the work, she didn't want to do that again..(darn!~[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]) Anyway, it won't get here until the firtst of January, but I can't wait to get it mounted and try her out.. I'll let you guys know if its worth a hoot, at 400 bucks I think it was hard to pass up.

Re: WINCH!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lucky you, i really want a winch but dont' have a ton of use for it, or the $400-$1000 for a winch and the fixings.

Re: WINCH!!!!!!!!!!!!

Put a snatch block on it and double your pulling power. Those jeepchicks are funny things. When I snapped an axle on a trail and we were stranded on the mountian for about 13 hours, she wanted to know what could be done to prevent that from happing again. (evil grin) This had been her first real wheeling trip with me. Well honey, lots of money and hard work, that's what it takes! hehehe She has never bitched about me spending money on the jeep. I'm lucky, she loves to go wheeing with me. Breaking down was prolly the best thing that could have happened!
Enjoy your new winch. It kinda gives you the nuts to try things you might not have tried otherwise.
