    Mine is a 48" one, I got it from my dad along time ago, it's older than I am I remember it being in the back of the rig when I was 5 or so.
    It's pretty damn strong too, I have had the 4' extendo bar on it a few times.
    I don't have a winch but I have a bunch of rigging for the hi-lft.
    I have only used it to change a flat a couple of times, but it gets well used in recovery work. LOL
    And with a 14FF and 33's I have gotten pretty damn good at getting out of the" I think I can get through there spots"
