Which winch?

I have a chance to pick up either a smittybuilt xrc8 for $150 with one pull ever on it. Or a Warn 12k with a in cab remote and 125ft of cable on it for $300. Either one will be getting a new rope and fair lead, along with a good cleaning and grease change.

With the Smitty the cable and fair lead are in good enough shape to sell so I would be looking at 100 total.

The Warn is older than the smitty but nothing a coat of paint cant fix. It is slower than the smitty but it draws a lot less power. It is also weighs 42lbs more. The main problem is that it is too wide and I would have to cut down the drum. Which I'm willing to do if it would be worth it.

Which one would you pick up?
