Find a used Warn 8274 and refurbish it. They are the fastest winch hands down and really easy to work on. I'm rebuilding one that I picked up for $300, I figure I'll have about $650 including the purchase price into it with a new motor and synthetic line. Get one with good cable on it and you'd be into it for only a little more than a smitty.
