Mason, In my opinion, You can't beat the Superwinch Terra 25. It's completely sealed, operates quietly, smoothly, draws less current than most any other 2500 lb winch, comes with a remote control, and can be obtained for around $175 on Amazon.com. You can purchase it with wire rope or synthetic rope. Check out the Superwinch web site and you'll be very impressed. No matter what winch you get, you will also need to get a winch mounting plate (also available from Amazon.com) The Superwinch Terra 25 is a great winch at a fabulous value. There are some other very good winches, but you end up paying more and getting the same (as a Superwinch) or less than what you get with the Superwinch. It also fits nicely in a Rancher.
Mason, also take a look at this thread: New Member / First ATV!! and a winch question :)
