The GS-9 Viking Winch is the perfect self recovery tool for your 4x4. Whether you use your 4x4 for work or play this winch is ready to get you unstuck. The GS-9 winch is not a cheap Chinese made winch that may not work when you need it or hold up from heavy use. The GS-9 winch is made to withstand every day use, and if it has not been used for a few years it will turn on since it has fully sealed Albright Solenoid. Heavy duty contactors in the remote also ensure positive electrical connections making the winch come to life when needed. The Viking Winch GS-9 is a superb winch employing proven technology from years of research, development and most importantly use in the field. It has a proven track record from the hottest desert in the world Death Valley to the coldest place on earth Antarctica. This winch has proven itself by the modern day Vikings in the California Deserts, Iceland and Antarctica all the way to the South Pole and everywhere in-between.
The Viking Winch is available in its default form without a winchline or fairlead. Please choose one of the winchline options if desired.

I found the usually fruitful internet forums 'lacking' on information about this winch. While I was researching a new winch for my 2014 JK Unlimited Rubicon, I could only find people who knew a guy who knew a guy. As far as I can tell at this point, no one has even posted a video of one in action. So here is a quickie.
It bolted right up to my OR Fab mid-width bumper, no problem. The fit and finish were very nice. As a quick test it pulled this full sized soccer goal across the pavement (stock battery) without even dimming the lights.
We'll see how it holds up to some abuse when things warm up this spring, but seems well built thus far. No corners were cut that I can find in my initial overview and installation.
