    Default Ready for a low-buck Winch?



    We've got a couple of great ones for ya.

    Our least expensive winch:
    Rugged Ridge Model 15100.01



    Rather be spooled up with Synthetic Winch Rope? How about a Rugged Ridge Model 15100.02

    Has there been any reviews or testing done on these? At the price i would love to add a winch to a truck or two but I have had poor luck in the past with off brand winches.

    This is the only one with any relevance to the winches in my thread.

    None of the others cover the RR winches.

    The video is just an ad.

    That is a good deal for a winch.

    There are not many parts to a winch and as long as you keep it dry and lubed. It should work just fine. I have seen the best of winches FAIL but I know my Winch has saved my life and jeep a few times.

    My Ramse Failed on me because of a rusted connection on the motor. Took it apart and moved the connection and it has worked ever since. A winch can get you thru just about anything you get yourself into.
