    No.
    Can’t tell if you’re being facetious or not.

    I have a badlands 12k as well as many friends, the 9k sucks, they work great for what we do with them and as long as you don’t use that stupid fuse block thing they come with they work fine. If you’re looking at cheaper winches I would recommend them over others. If you’re looking for high end and faster cable speed, keep looking.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
