Heck hondaman! Just add a few dollars and get a Warn 3.0. I've never had a problem with the Warn 3.0. I know some guys with 2000 lb winches and their atv's as big as the Rincon. They've been stuck pretty good and the 2000 wouldn't break the tire suction. Guess it depends on what type riding you plan to do or what you plan to use the winch for.
