Ramsey's are what is on most roll back tow trucks
Superwinch was pretty helpful with the PTO winch when I emailed them.

Other than U-joints (which are common parts or at least replaceable with common parts) nothing seems to go wrong on them.

Yes, because if you are outside and away from a campfire the beer freezes

Winching slowly is fun in beautiful weather when the sun is shining. Waiting after a slow winch in the muck or snow just plain sucks.

Usually when I am winching, I want to get out of whatever mess I am in, as fast as humanly possible.

Exactly. Being stuck in a precarious position while you wait for your slow winch really isn't much fun. Scared of a fact winch? Double your line pull and you'll be slowed down real nice.

Other than the obvious reason that Kang cannot follow convention with most things...why? There are a large number of winches that would fit (both need and space) on your truck far better than either of the two you are considering.

For the record, if you listen your spotter more often you wouldn't need a winch nearly as often!

I just dropped the coin for a Husky 10 for my 110 build. Pairing it with a SG bumper too.

Amazon had the best price, $1400 shipped.
