Badlands 12,000 lb winch $320 - "The Best Deal in Winching"

So harbor freight is carrying the BadLands winches. You can read about it in the Off Road magazine article.

Basically its $399 and if you use the code DISC20 you get 20% off to make it a little over $300 ($320)

Shipping and tax for me makes it $357.36. Im pretty sure you can print out a 20% off coupon and buy it in store too, but dont quote me on that one.

Not too shabby a price for a decent winch. Like everything else at HF its not professional grade tools, but it will work.

I mnot sure of their replacement policy on this item, but I would surely buy it if they offered it.

They also sell ATV winches wich are more then good enough under most circumstances.

Picked one (12,000# Badland) up a few weeks ago. Got the 3 year full replacement option. $370 out the door. If it breaks within 3 years, they give me a new one. I might just try to break it at around year 2.9 to get a new one then.

ARB Bullbar on it's way. Will have to see if it fits without too many mods/spacers. Will post update after install. Likely in the new year.

So far so good. See post #48 @ http://www.expeditionportal.com/foru...Progress/page5

for pics of the winch install into the second gen Tacoma ARB Bull Bar. It just bolted right in. I had to use longer bolts, and had to re-drill the fairlead to match the hole pattern on the ARB Bullbar.

Also see this link for info on how to Re-Clock the winch clutch handle (which you will need to do to install in the ARB bumper):

http://forum.ih8mud.com/winching-rec...tructions.html

I have not had a lot of use yet, but have used to yank some trees out of the way, and have been through some excercises on state lands with the winch, tree straps, snatch blocks. Laugh if you want, but when I get stuck, I want to be ready to get un-stuck efficiently.

I also had a good conversation about duty cycle with the Warn rep at an event I attended. Yes, the Warn has a better duty cycle rating but he did agree that by putting a masively over-rated capacity winch (12K when I only need 9K) and using the 12K for a far less load, the duty cycle should be twice as long and therefore outperforming a base model Warn 9K 9as far as duty cycle goes).

So far, the quality of the winch seems good. The powder and assembly seems to be decent. The price is outright awesome.

I did move the solenoid box into the engine bay to protect it from moisture ( I live in the PNW and we get a lot of moisture). See post #75 in the above linked build thread on Expo. To move the box, I had to extend the terminal cables with 2 gauge wire ($$$).

The weakest link on the winch seems to be the Solenoid box, which is of notably lower quality than the actual winch.

Time will tell.

So they have a few 9000 lb winches. The specs are a little different between them. I'm guessing that they bump up the specs every now and then.

There's a 9000lb winch (#61325) thats at 259.99 on sale (web) and a 20% code works on it which brings it to $232 after tax and shipping.

Just found a 25% off code.. 218 w/tax and shipping. It does appear to have less horsepower and cable length than the other item #. 4.6hp vs 5.5 and 65ft vs 85 ft.

Here's the code if anyone's interested 26174570
