Default bought a tuff stuff winch for $375 on Ebay

so we bought a tuff stuff winch that is rated at 12500 lbs off e bay shiped to my door for $375. it came will all that is shown in the first pic. Everything looks like it is made well and will hold up except the gloves that had to cost .25 cents to make. the snach block is rated at around 17,000 lbs the remote has a 12 foot cord and the roler faring looks good to. it came with all the hardware to bolt to the mount that we are going to make. we are going to put it on a recever hitch and put plugs on the front and back of out trucks so we can move it form front to back or to diffrent trucks if we need to. i will keep you posted on our progress. we are planing on going to the dog party so that will be the first real test for it. if you have any questions feel free to ask and i will answer them the best i can

What's the latest on your investment there? I was just getting ready to order up one myself and found your post. Would you recommend. You can't buy a used Warn or Ramsey for that price.
