EDIT- a problem with the 2K winch is that the spool is only long enough for 50' of wire that is only rated at 2K lbs. Put a snatch block on it and your wire is only good for 4K (kind of) and is only 25' long
trailer is only 18ft and the price is right so i think i may go with that unit.... once i get some dough ill upgrade...
