Smittybilt has a new winch out. They are apparently trying to expand their line away from bumpers and body addons.

http://www.smittybilt.com/product/index/38.htm

Looks a lot like the milemarker 8000lb, but the Smittybilt has a 265:1 gear reduction ratio vs a 210:1 for MM

Price is 300 + shipping. Is this worth the cash for an entry level winch? Would you trust the brand over MM?

Any input is appreciated.
