I buy American unless the savings are so enormous I can console myself with the fact that I could replace the Chinese one and still be ahead.

It's hard to find American-made products. I met a guy I had gone to high school last year. He drove a Wrangler on 37's but all of his accessories on this awesome Jeep were Chinese made. Kinda ruined it for me and for him as he could tell I wasn't impressed.

Probably going to be the best $800 I ever spent. That's what I think.

EDIT: (turns out to be a little more than that for synthetic rope.)

I did a thing today. I ordered the VR8-S from Warn, one of their entry-level Chinese-made winches. I know I made a lot of noise about this but the other one really didn't fit into the budget and I'm going to trust that Warn made this move strategically and take their name and reputation very seriously. I'm sure I'll have good luck with it. The warranty is pretty solid and their reputation is great. I wish we could make them here for this price point, but they don't.

The M8000 with Synthetic Cable was too much to justify spending on this right now. It's a great winch. I'll let you know how the VR8-s holds up. AFAIK this winch will be for this Jeep and any other Jeeps I buy or build will get their own. It should be good enough.
