Bought a PRO&TOP 12000LBS winch I wanted to install and it doesn't work:(. So what winches do you guys use? I am currently looking to get a winch soon and am looking for some suggestions as well as general curiosity of what you use.
I looked into the Internet and find a nice list. I think that I should probably choose any of this ? (I am thinking about buying a Smittybit 97412 XRC.)

I have a Smittybilt X2O 10k. Others... Warn if you want super quality for a huge pricetag. The Barricade ones from ExtremeTerrain aren’t bad.

Barricade 9500. Used it twice so far to help others LOL. I got a Barricade bumper from a buddy and it seemed logical to get their winch so it would definitely fit. Works great. Good price too.

I have a 9500lb Superwinch Tigershark and a Warn 9500cti-s. The Warn blows the Superwinch out of the water but is also 3x the price.

If I was looking right now I would probably get the Harbor Freight Badlands Apex 12000lb synthetic for $600.

I would recommend you to get Superwinch 1585202 LP8500 Winch Gen II. It is very easy to install as the solenoid is already placed and wired on the side of the winch. Just had to bolt it to the front bumper and run the wires to the battery.

I have 2 engo 10000lb with synthetic. If you have the $ go with a warn but there are several options budget wise that will be less. Winches are like generators. You only need them when you really need them and they better work when you need em to
