Which winch is which?

While the old adage “never go off-road alone” certainly holds true, every four-wheeling enthusiast should, nonetheless, give some thought and preparation to self-recovery. A good recovery kit and some basic hand tools are must-haves for every wheeling trip. And, while a winch is farther down my wish list for now, I still like to research things from time to time so I’m better prepared to make the purchase when the time comes.

To that end, here’s a great article by Four Wheeler Magazine that, while it’s several years old now, still provides some very useful comparative information on choosing the best winch for your needs:
