Looking for a lightweight winch w/ synthetic rope to ease off the front end load. Smittybilt XRC8 Comp 8000lb vs Rugged Ridge 8500lb w/ sythetic. Both are priced around $500 and weight approximately 55-60lb. I'm not looking to do any hardcore offroading, just caouple fo trips /year to RC and forked river, no rock crawling of any sort, mostly mud/forest trails.

Anybody is running one of these?

Thanks for the great picture, do you keep your winch in all year round? Any winch servicing required at all (greasing, etc)?

Thanks again
