mile marker... sell it while it still works.
go to e bay and search gorilla winches for a GOOD cheap winch.
they get ya on shipping... I did the mile marker thing.
the warn winch that I have on my truck was 50 bucks more then the gorilla that I have on my wifes truck.
the only reason that I bought the warn was the gorilla was out of stock and I had a run the next day. the only difference that I SEE is the shape of the casting on the motor. the gorilla now has remote. if they had it a year ago.. I would have gone the gorilla over the warn.
no way, on the mile marker, the connectors are tiny. the motor burns out.. I got to use mine 3 times. then one hard pull it smoked. done. the motor is just 50 bucks shy of a new winch.

Thanks for the advice on the milemarker. I'll just steal the xp off my 89 then. was going top use a multi mount setup but my good friend talked me out of it, said it could end up being a pita. and the housings are going to be black just thought it would look really cool with a colored third.:hmm:
