    Lets turn the ol' winch question around: Which winch would qualify for the title of "worst winch" for a trail worthy FJ40 or Fj55 and why? Any horror storys out there?

    Any bad or positive opinions on Mile Marker winches or the Superwinch? I have a friend who likes his Superwinch although I have heard them refered to as the "SupersuckWinch"...

    Yeah I keep seeing the 2,000 pound Harbor Freight $69 deal thinking, how bad can that really be. This is a good post.. What will work and what's worthless?

    I have a MM hydro and love it. The smaller winches from above make great hard top hoists.
    No work!

    The worst winch is one that is unsafe to use, ie. frayed cable.
    Keep that in mind.
