The cheap ones seem to go out when you need them the most. I would imagine that it isn't sealed that well and if you ride alot of mud and water it probably wont last very long.

Nice looking ride.

If your going to go cheap then Harbour Freight has them for around $60. I know people that have had them for while w/o probs and some that had probs right from the get go. But you can get a 1 yr warranty on the for a couple bucks more. That just doesn't help much on the trail. I would look in to Mile Marker winches. 2.5k for $200. Good quality and good price. Thats what I would buy, if I finally decied to buy one.

I haven't seen headlight covers yet. Most of us want brighter lights for seeing at night.

I've had the Harbor Freight $100 and also had a $400 warn 2500 LB.I seem to have bad luck with winches,I break them all.The true difference is the quality in the wiring and switches.The cheap one's always overheat and stop working when YOU need it the most.The best one I had was the Superwich 300 pound..It lasted a year and half,the most powerful is a Warn by far most...Nice looking bike,I just bought a 05 500ES 4x4 in red last week...

Winch

I just bought a mile marker 2500lb for $200 and love it. It is very quiet and has metal gears with a 2 year warranty. You can buy them from www.xpatv.com. They are a proven winch and also the military has swithched to mile marker instead of warn.

Raveer2000, It is from Cabelas custom fit for $29.99. I think the company is JamesGreene atv products.
