    $ 289 on ebay plus $75 shipping, I'm from illinois, I'm offroad 3-5 times a year. plan to use it once a year if and when I get stuck. I'm planning a front recever mount and plan on keeping it stored in the back of my truck ( covered) until I need it. Is it worth it? will it pull out my 7500 lbs truck when I'm axle deep? I can't justify $ 1200 for a WARN or other name brand to leave it stored and just barely use it.. Any thoughts?

    I just bought a 12000lb one from Harbor Freight for 350 out the door. Came with everything needed to install but mounting plate.
    Have not installed it yet, hopefully this week. I'm like you, might use it once a year if that and can't see spending 1500 as well for one. I have 90 days to return if it doesn't work to my liking.
