To good to be true?

I've been looking for a good comealong ( and still cant find one) but hell this looks sweet for the price.
Hope it's not against rules to post a link. if so my apologies to the mod's.

http://www.princessauto.com/pal/Off-...inch/8289399.p

1 big question being new to the off road world. Would I need a new bumper to hook this up to?
And is this winch worth the moula?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks King.
Is there a come-a-long that is good enough out there, I don't mind putting some elbow grease into it, (and I'm a cheep SOB) most I see are only 2 tonn's and that's just not enough.

Same problem when things go wrong though

Hi Lift xtreem it is then. along with flak jacket and head gear.
Am i correct to assume that I would need a new front bumper if i was to get a winch.
Thanks for the patience and I apologise for being a total newb, but trying to search for stuff in such a large data base is pointless. Figured I'd just ask away.

Ah u know what, my brother in law gave me that exact winch, I've used it, it's just like all the other winches, and at that price, why the fuck not, use it till it explodes and get another, I've got no complaints about it, give it a whirl,

If you have tow hooks no a come along will work with them if you get a winch either new winch bumper or reciever mount seems the reciever mounts are getting more popular as you can use the winch front or rear

its one of those things, cheap out and by the one that will probably get you by.. but let you down when you need it the most.... or spend a few bucks more, get a warn and don't worry about it.

And yes you will need a new bumper for a winch
And if that runner still has a stock bumper on It it soon will need one anyway

Trail gear bumpers are pretty cheap and if u can't fab or are cheap their a good option for a winch-mount tube bumper on a toy. Save money buy a winch. Warn is what has the reputation. I've heArd good things about Ramsey and mile marker as well. Unless I knew the rigging and the tow points were really fucking secure I wouldn't jack all or come along my truck fuck that
