For the cost of a quality come-along you might as well get a real winch.

If you want to do it like a broke ass hick...grab one or two come alongs at a yard sale ...best to have a shovel and axe to work with as well...But hey, mine has gotten me out of a jam more then a handful of times. I'd like a winch...but for the time being the 5 bucks i could afford to spend on my come along has been more helpful then the 500 I wish i could afford on a decent winch
