I had a ramsey rep9000 on a quick mount system, i could put it on the front or rear into a trailer hitch, the ramsey would take no time to heat up. Also after the first time I got it muddy if would no longer switch into the free-spool mode, the mud jammed the switch. It was slow and underpowered, it didnt have a problem pulling out jeeps nad yota's but it was never able to free my f-150. Save your money, unless its dirt cheap and you just want it for looks.
I have heard also that Ramsey's winches are made cheap and are not built for the heavy stuff. Even though they may be rated for whatever and my work the first couple of times they usually don't last. I would look at WARN or MileMarker like BIGINUF has. DDGETHS
I put a ramsey rep9000 to the test many times, it would repeatedly fail, on full size trucks stuck in deep mud i can NEVER actually remember it working on a full size truck, on small trucks it worked ok, but after the first time it got muddy it would never shift into free-spool. They are P.O.S.
Also the little prongs where you plug the remote control in, they all got bent easily and broke off.That sucked too.
