Mines worked great the 4 times if had to use it...
Lol..the 5th it quit working?
Have to say their customer services have been good so far, but the winch has had its share of issues
Freespool lever broke, first time i used it.
Now the motor, and smittybilt thought it was the solenoid, so...im in the fence. Maybe itd work better if i used it more? I dont know..
What do u run beefy?
Warn, patriot?

I have had three....

New Champion...didn't last a year and sucked

used warn m8000-fastest winch I have had, but have had to replace the motor and solenoids since. Don't know its age or life before me. But now my remote won't work in out only in. And I have had troubles with the brake inside the drum.

Purcahsed a Engo e10000-had a few issues (one I don't consider to be their fault, and one was silly and not really their fault, and one from an assembly error at factory), but customer service has been awesome. Def isn't the fastest, but pulls hard.

Ask Beefy about a side by side m8000-smitty up hill contest

I now have a VR8000 Warn from Unlimited Offorad that is going on the buggy.

I've had good luck with my smitty, but I'd like a gooder one. It's too slow.

I'm running a warn HS9500... It is retard fast (almost as fast as an 8274) but it is stronger... I love it. Bought it used for $700... Kinda high, but we'll worth it as it has never let me down.

Well .pretty sure ill be selling it too! Get a newer lower/medium stahl converter.
Got do do some wheeling today with some good fellas..had a blast, no major carnage to the jeep..some small dents and scrapes and a brake rear line got ripped off..stupid treez..lol
Motor ran good, makes awesome power at about 2500-5500 rpms...little hard to wheel at that..but it definitely adds a fun factor. If i didn't want fuel injection id keep it...although it did ru. Pretty good in its side ish...teheee..hopefully pix/video to follow.

Here are some pics of the carnag
Rear drivers corner..now i need body armor..

Rear pass side brake line, thought it was secured good enough..guess a tree decided not!!

Rear passenger side

Got a little close to the a pillar..lol cant count how many mirrors ive lost


So minor fixes..woot!!
Thanks for the opportunity..
