I ordered it from Xtreme in West Monroe and got a great deal on it. It came with everything i needed including a snatch block and a winch cover. I installed it last night and am very happy with it so far. It wasnt hard at all to install as long as u follow the directions. I forgot to run my battery wires through the little tunnels in the frame under the seat 3but thats all i messed up on. I cant wait to see it in action. It comes with a 1 year internal warranty. Im sure ill get to try it out an Mud Nats tomorrow. My cousin has a viper max 3000 on his 9" lifted can-am maxx and has no problem pulling it out. So i would say to anyone interested in getting a new winch...."Buy a Viper".

They seem to be really good products.

I know my riding buddy swears by his Viper 3000 on his lifted 700 grizz with 29.5" laws. He says it doesnt even feel like its straining when he is stuck.

I put a Viper on my buddies brute for him. I was surprised at the quality of the winch for the price he paid. So far its been a good one but i will say the solenoid they sent with it was a total piece of crap!! It filled up with water and quit working in no time. I had to take it apart and total clean and redo the inside of it. Siliconed it up and it works fine now. I'm not sure if they have a better solenoid for it now or not but if its the same old cheap one you will need to water proof it or get a better one.

The winch its self has been a good one.

If u are talking about the contactor, they now have oil filled units. That solves the problem where water makes it inside and a little rust begins to seize up the moving parts inside.
