    I would like to have one to help on off roading trips but also to help out in the driveway since I don't have room for an aircompressor in my little tiny shed in base housing, but I guess the truck would have to be running in order to use it. Might make changing brakes and stuff weird with the truck running. But I think it's a good idea if you weighed the cost vs. buying a 12k winch and on board air compressor system. I guess I'm sold on it and will probably buy one when I get the money.

    I have one and it works great! I was able to reseat a rear tire after I blew the inside and the outside beads, and the truck wasn't even running. The next weekend I winched out a buddy of mine that was buried so deep his winch was covered with no problem. Pulled him 75 feet in one pull and the motor didn't even get hot. I got mine for 1220.00 with free shipping. I have been very pleased.:waytogo:
