I have had my warn 3.0 under water several times even running it underwater a few times, never a problem with it. They are a lil more $ to get in the beginning BUT yo get what you pay for. The warn 3.0 IIRC is the only sealed winch out there. I have YET to even clean or touch my winch in the 2yrs Ive had it. The only thing I have EVER done was to pull off the steel cable and put on the plasma rope. THATS IT. Still works like new.

Same for my Warn 3000. I have really abused it bad. It just doesn't quit. I have even pulled out half ton p/u before at mud nats on the highline.

Dirtyrider,, look in the Rincon post.. I was asking the same question about 6 months ago. Alot of votes for the Gorilla, and Milemarker.. None seemed to have problems with deep water riding. I went and purchased the Gorilla #3000 and have had it under more that above water.. No probs yet. The Gorilla #3000 was $79 plus $26 shipping.. Good deal for a #3000.. That encludes all but the mounting plate which I already had.

Ebay...under ATV Winches... It don't weigh that much.. Apparently alot lighter that the competators. The ebay site wll give you the weight, speed of winch under different loads, size, .. ect and compare them to others..

the thing I like most about where mine sits now, is you can see it, don't have to worry about the wire getting wrapped around itself , and when in mud its easy to climb out to, attached is another pic showing the front of it as it mounted to old rubi, the foreman's allow the winch to sit up higher in the frame since my radiator is where it is located on the formans
