I got the following answers when I asked the same question a few weeks ago.

I bought the synthetic Wynchmax and while I have not fitted it yet, I think the quality looks good for the money.

Seen loads on fleabay, are Rhino any good, seem good value, I know you get what you pay for, suggestion would be helpful.


I can't find the brand name "rule" for winches. Is this definitely it?

Most winch manufacturers sell replacement motors though.

A 3000lb winch is nowhere near strong enough for a Jimny. You need a minimum of 6000lb but mist of us use 9000lb.

There's cheap winches out there from Winchmax and Warrior. Check out eBay.

I can recommend Horntool winches. Good Chinese winches with European service, etc.
