Viper Recovery Winches?

Anyone got em? seem to be a LOT cheaper than WARN. Wondering if they dont hold up or what the deal is...


First rig: e99 F250 CCSB 4x4 auto, white, 388k miles: traded in
Then: 02 F350 RCLB SRW 4x4 zf6, silver, 201k miles, THREW A ROD : traded to Jake
Now: 96 F350 CCLB DRW 4x2 auto, red and silver/grey, 266k miles: rusty but trusty

My experience is you get what you pay for, especially with winches.
I've seen a lot of Smitybilt winches returned as defective or because people weren't happy with em and ended up with a Warn. Looking at the manufacturers site they look a lot like Superwinches to me. Might be A good buy, never heard of em before thou. They don't list the gearing, so no telling how fast or in the case of Smitybilt slow the line speed is.

If you get one thou, be sure to post an update.

05' F350 CC LB SRW FX4 King Ranch
Diablo Trinity Tuner, Glowshift 3 in 1 EGT/Boost/Tranny Temp gauge.
Am lovin the 6.0L

After all, how often can ya push 8500 pounds of truck to 110 MPH in stock trim
