Yeah, not so much

So my super-cool dual motor Yeah Racing winch died a horrible death yesterday.
Maybe my rig is too heavy, maybe there was some dirt or grit in the gearbox, I don't know. All I heard was grinding and spinning the last time I went to use it. It spooled out fine, but it wouldn't reel back in. And it was an even worse pain trying to get it off than it was putting it on!

So I'll be shopping for a newer stronger winch. I'm thinking either a Warn or maybe I'll go with a Servo winch and hide it under the hood.
