I bought two of these to install on two different Jeep Wranglers. I also have a Warn M-8000 that I installed on my third Wrangler. The Warn winch is considerably higher quality than the Rugged Ridge, but was twice the price. Finish on both Rugged Ridge winches had damage to the affixed stickers which depleted from the overall appearance. The remote control plug in is flimsy and will most likely not stand up to much use. The control box mounting bracket is cheap and flimsy.

Pros; Good quality Good price for the size Looks good. Cons; Instructions suck! 1. Has you install winch first then wire it up. Problem is you have to hook up wires to back of winch (hard but possible) then wire to bottom of winch (impossible after installation). Also cable to battery is about 3" to short! 2. After I hooked it all up, plugged in controller and would not work! Had to go online and look up people with similar problems; turns out remote in finicky and you must push and twist.

First winch I have owned. Install was easy, fit and finish is excellent. Waiting to use it. Warn whinches are supposed.to be better but at a much higher cost. We are just weekend warriors so this is more than enough power for us. Very happy with our Rugged Ridge winch. People we talked with on the trails with the same winch loved them.

Works great,good price,Had to call rugged ridge to discover you had twist to connect the control plug. Other then that everything worked great.

Bought this winch for the front of my car trailer because I keep burning out the 2500 lb winches. With this winch it makes my life easy to load things onto the trailer.

I live in florida and hunt from 2-5 days a week. I need some new tires for the mud here and only have street tires so until I can get some mudders I purchased the winch. I have never used the winch for any purpose so how it performs, i could not tell you. I would or intend to use it for anyone stuck in the mud ect. or if I was to get stuck. Money is tight and I have ordered some tires at a local dealer at 50.00 bucks a week until they are payed for. I could also use the winch to pull downed game in my area as some places are not accessable. With the winch and a rop I could reach a long ways. As far as attaching the winch my friend (Tom) and I put a strong piece of metal between the frame rails under the bumper and cut a hole in the bumper and installed a trailer hitch assembley. Then we put the winch on a solid plate with the bolts provided and welded it to a trailer sleeve sliding it into the bumper. We welded the bolts so no one could easily steal the equipment and used a locking bolt.
