    Before purchasing a winch for your 4WD it is a good idea to educate yourself on the fundamentals of a winch so that you can make an educated decision and ultimately purchase the correct winch for your needs. Considerations you should look into further before purchasing include: how much winch you need, how often and how hard you plan on using the winch, what is your budget and do you have any weight or dimensional limitations or requirements. By considering these elements before purchasing you will have no doubts that your winch will be able to pull you out when needed.
