I have the 2500 Venom Winch and I love it, I had to use it again 2 times this weekend at Haspin Acres to pull me out of a couple of mud pits. I would recommend at least a 3000# winch or bigger for the Foremans and Rubicons and such just for the extra power when your in the real thick stuff.

When I get my bonus check the 30th I'm going to get a Venom 3000 for mine. I'm glad to hear that they are as good as the high dollar ones!!

I searched for 4 months and had several question forums on here. The consencus was Gorilla and Venom for the money. Good posts from thoes that had them.... Seemed reliable and built well. Good luck

I don't think the gorillas are water proof. I got mine wet yesterday and it started running on its own. I had to hold down the out button to make it stop, all the way back to the truck. Strange thing is that 2 hours before this happened I pulled the winch cable out of the winch , so when it started running it did not hurt anything . I did not just get it wet, I flew through the creek to get the bottom washed off before loading it on the trailor. I think I'm going to make some kind of "thing" lol to keep if from getting so wet.
