Are the Champion winches from Costco any good? Other than they are cheap.

I hear that they are good, but slower than a warn.
so for best bang for the buck I'd say to get one.

yea, i could get a warn but, this is cheaper, good warrenty, and i could have my sidekick burried to the roof in postil and the 9500 wouldn't bog down for a second. And it sure beats the come a long.

Easiest way would be to get a cradle for it, then fab up a 2" receiver hitch on the front and one on the back with quick connects that you can swap the winch to and from.

Or you can build or buy a winch bumper.
