Other than warn and superwinch what is the next best truck winch?

I'm leaning toward a 8000 lb smitty built any reviews or advice would be welcome

Some of the best truck winches include ATW Series T-Max Winches, Off-Road Series T-Max Winches by Westin Automotive, Smittybilt XRC8 Winch and WARN XT30 Extreme Terrain Winch. Others include Smittybilt XRC 8 Comp Series Winch and Smittybilt XRC10 Winch.

I use a 12,000 pound model on my deuce and a half. They're well built, easy to install, and even better built than a similar rated Warn in my opinion. I have it mounted on the back, it came with one on the front when I bought it at auction.

Smitty? And have you put it under full strain? No tightening parts back down or anything?

Yes, I tested it at my peril when I nosed the deuce down a clay embankment and stuck its nose in a ditch of muck I couldn't back out of. The truck was fully loaded with firewood, but I simply ran out the cable and winched back up the hill. No problems.

I bought my Smitty because it fit between the frame rails tightly enough to not stick out at the rear and block the tail gate of the truck in the down position.

I think Ramsey built the winch on the front of my deuce. Do they have a website?
