Viper or Warn?

I need to buy a new winch for my Teryx, id like to get the 4,000#. I see that the Viper winches at Hunterworks are like half the price as the Warn. Are the Vipers that much less quality or are you just buyng the Warn name?

I actaully found some old posts of the Viper winch and everybody had positive things to say about it. I feel pretty comfortable buying one now and ill save a ton of money.

I hear alot of good things about the viper as well. My question is how heavy of a winch is necessary for the teryx?

The bigger the better, but i think 3500# at the minimum. Most guys are running 4000 to 4500.

My recommendation is the 4500lb, it has a mechanical brake and the ones smaller do not, they have dynamic braking.

Also, we have been selling the viper since Nov and not one issue!!
