This winch paid for itself the very first time I used it. Having so much cable that comes with it, means you don't have to carry as many extra ropes or straps with you. I would highly recommend the winch mount receiver hitch also, as well as the quick connects, so you can use the winch in the rear receiver hitch. You should also get the 150 Amp inline manual fuse. 25' of the #4 Red Welding cable and 25' of the #4 Black welding cable was enough to run the length of my truck to the rear hitch and to the front mount I installed. This winch has truly been a Blessing!!!
