Hey Troops

Looking at putting on a Winch...want to keep it under a Grand as it’s is something I’ll only be using in an Emergency or to haul Log or two. More then likely a Warn or Smittybilt.

Suggestions?

Warn tends to get all the love as far as winches go, and they earned it. They are great winches.

BUT, I’ve only ever heard good things about the less pricey alternatives from Smittybilt. I decided to go with one of these myself, and while I haven’t even used it yet, I know a lot of people with the same one who love it. I really haven’t heard a bad thing about a Warn or a Smitty.

Mine:
Smittybilt (98510) X2O Waterproof Synthetic Rope Winch - 10000 lb. Load Capacity https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00K150VAI/?tag=tacoma3g-20

There are weight options and cable options. I think 10,000 lbs is good for these trucks considering it’s not that expensive anyway. Be sure to get synthetic line over the old school cables. They are lighter, safer, easier to handle, and don’t really require maintenance like a cable does (also aren’t prone to weather).

LOL...that’s the Smittyblit I was looking at! Thanks.
