So harbor freight had a sale on their badlands 12000lbs winch. $292, but their replacement plan is not as cheap as I guess they used to be. One year cost me $80, and with tax it was about $400. I just came across a Rough Country 12,000lbs and a Smittybilt 12,000 winch both at $400, but the Smittybilt was free shipping, lifetime mechanical warranty, and 3 year electrical warranty. So what I'm thinking is returning the Badlands , and ordering the Smittybilt. I'm sure I know the answer to this question, but which winch do you guys think is best quality?
