Did what GG did and dropped it into Mal and he did something to it for a couple of hundred and then had it fitted. Which reminds me I had cause to use the winch at Lake Hart near Woomera. Just found a nice camp and the sun was setting and the beer was just opened. "herro" he says. "Yes mate, wassup?"
" my car stuck in sand 1 kirometer flom heea." You have help me" f%}^{%]% I said. So I drop everything and drive him down to the trainlines and there's his car and the front wheels are buried in the sand. Type of car you ask? A Hyundai Accent. "  Winched him out and as I go to drive off he bogs himself again. F^{^{%]% I say. So winch him out again and he drives off in the sunset to Yulara. Freaking tourists! At least the winch works ;D

Bugger that Fuji in beer drinking time, should have just chucked him fifty cents to call someone who cares. Reminds me of the time up the Murray a guy tried to put his boat in the river and ended up putting his 200 in there as well. Hooked the winch on, but i was up over the bank and couldnt see him and was wondering why I was struggling to move, actually pulled my car out of the ditch I put it in to help hold it, so I gets out and walk over to the bank to see what's going on and here he is standing beside the car with the wheels on full lock digging deeper into the sand. Ya might wanta get in and help I says, so after about two hours stuffing around he goes to his fridge and gets four cans of VB, great I hate the stuff

Great write up in the patrol4x4.com site in the recovery gear section on rebuilding your Warn winch, step by step guide that someone with basic mechanical skills can attempt easily and lots of pictures.

When Mal did our winch it also cost is over $1100.....that was a bit of a surprise.
I know the grease you need to use is the EPL0 it's the thinnest grease, it's nearly oil, that's what Mal told me to use.

If it was my money again, I would buy a cheaper brand and just replace it every 5 years.......

Just sold my Warn high mount as it was in need of maintenance after many years of service and I plan on doing exactly this. I am currently looking at my options and don't mind the look of the 12000lb mean mother. Rolling them over regularly would be the most cost effective solution I believe.

I don't have a winch, never had a winch, don't think I will ever get a winch but to me buying a cheap winch and replacing every couple of years appears risky as you are replacing it because it has failed and the risk is it has failed when you needed it meaning you are stuck somewhere especially solo.
The same train of thought on fridges and buying cheap to me there is no safety risk if it breaks down just spoiled food but bogged in the outback with no help in sight with a faulty winch......
