    I have run a Milemarker 10,500#, 2-speed winch for 1.5 years and have had no problems with it as of yet. I can not make any comparisons to an electric since I have never used one before.

    I may be slow, but I sure am fat!

    They work great as long as the engine is running. Lay your truck on its side or drown the engine in a stream and you'll need someone else there to winch you out. [​IMG]

    Have you had to do anything with your power steering pump? Like upgrade or anything? Cooler?
    Have you stalled it?

    Have you stalled it? What kind of wheeling, any mud?

    I have done nothing to the power steering system except replace the pump and install a cooler. The only reason I replaced the pump is because it was the original and was already making noises like it might die any day, so I replaced it. I have never stalled mine and I helped my Dad recover a moblie home that had sunk in a field up to the axles. I had to use a snatch block but had no problems moving it, he was quite impressed. He was afraid he would have to call a large truck wrecker to do the job.

    I may be slow, but I sure am fat!
