Question Good deal for a winch?

I found a coupon for a 2000 pound winch in popular mechanics for $50. The brand is Badland winches. I'm a complete noob when it comes to winches, so does anyone know if that's a good brand? Also, I have a 5 lugger, so does anyone know of a good mounting place for them without the plate bumper?
Thanks

Those are Harbor Freight tools winch brand. And 2000lbs is far from what will actually help get your truck unstuck if you do happen to need a winch.

Oh, i see. Thats kinda what i thought, cuz I looked on Amazon and most of the winches were like 9000 pounds. But, about Harbor Freight, do they typically sell good quality stuff? Cuz I'm thinking of getting a drill press with one of the coupons.

Oh, and if i do end up getting a good winch, any 5 lug mounting ideas, if any?

2000 lbs would be great for a four wheeler!

Harbor Freight and Northern Tools are both great! Just spent $400 at Northern today.
