Lordco screws you every chance they get. Unless you find that one good guy that works there.

They seem to work pretty good. Not as fast line retrieval as a Warn though. You also get the Costco warranty if it breaks they replace it.

the problem is.... I do not want to have a problem with the winch while its in use. sure if it breaks you have warranty but your stuck in the mean time.

Wasn't talking to you but like highway star said there was a thread on another site and the champion winch was given good reviews. The only problem or fault that people who use them have stated was the retrieval speed. There are also quite a few guys that use them on here and I have not herd any of them complaing about them either so I was hoping jeep victim would tell us why you have to avoid them?

Get some one from BCIT to buy you the winch. 600 plus another 50% off. I buy some stuff from lordco. Most of the time its no cheaper with the 50% off. If your in vancouver I could buy it for you.

i have a champion. the only problem i have had is that the motor grounds through the body of the winch. the body on my winch corroded inside so much that it didn't ground out. so the motor stopped. i built a jumper for the ground until i am not so lazy to take it back.

so i guess my advice is maybe cover the winch up from day one?

may be cheaper but remeber the chance is always there over quality and price


it can still happen with good one


and the champions seem fine to me lifetime warrenty and just al little bit slower then a warn winch


i havent experienced anything but good with them

Lordco is overpriced, but the discounts the workers get are pretty good, my cous works there and can get me a killer price on some stuff
