Cool Which winch?

I know Warn is the best but I can't afford one and I need to buy a winch. Of these two choices, which is the better winch? I already had a Milemarker on my Ranger and liked it but opinions are still welcome.



Milemarker SI12000


Smittybilt XRC-12

Both are 12,000 lb winches and have the features I am looking for. I'd just like some input before I buy. Thanks in advance...

I say go with what ya know ... If you like the Milemarker than stick with one ... I would make sure mine had an auxillary hand crank option ... Just in case ... Oh yeah ... Just in case is why you get a winch ...
