I've posted this in both the 1st and 2nd gen boards, but didn't get any replies. I'm hoping that someone can give me some advice and/or suggestions. I can buy a brand new 10,500 lbs milemarker winch for $775. My first question is, is this a good deal. Also, is there any way that I can run the winch off of my power steering pump and/or an electric pump. I like the fact that they use the steering pump, but I would also like to be able to run it off of an electric pump hooked to my backup battery in case my truck dies. Is it possible to hook it up to my steering pump and an electric pump without causing problems? Are there any good/bad things I should know about the milemarker?
