When I get the extra money I am going to try the waterproof gorilla 3000lb with 50 ft of synthetic rope and mount plate for $263 shipped.

You can do better than that for a Gorilla on Ebay.

There were no waterproof 3000# gorilla winches on eBay when I looked.

I got mine on ebay, it did not say anything about being waterproof but I have had no problems with it and it gets wet everytime out. I have about $225 with the winch, rope, and new fairlead.

There were a few weeks ago??
outdoor2you was the saler.
As you will read on here, the 3000 lb has a clearance issue with the fender brackett. You may want to go with the 2500 model. I had to bend the "wings" of the mount plate and the fender brace? Also turned the hot terminal down, i.e. rotated the motor 180 degrees.
