Viper has certainly served me well. Their products and service are as advertised and they take a backseat to no one.

08 Brute Force 750I, VDI Copperhead, HMF Swamp exhaust with custom snorks and radiator relocate. UNI air filter. Pink primary/ red secondary clutch springs and EPI weights. ASR tie rods and ends. 2" lift kit, 30" Zilla rears all the way around on 14" ITP SS212 wheels. Viper Max MX4000# winch with black Amsteel synthetic cable.

I have had 2a vipers. 1 3000# and a 4000# and they are both junk. My old 2500# warn has beenbeat to death since I bought it 05a and still pulls its guts out when ever I need it.

Obviously the Viper Winches are liked but which one do you guys prefer? The Elite, Max, or Classic?

Really the only difference between the Max and the Elite is the wireless remote... If you think you need the wireless remote get the Elite, if not, the Max is the way to go.

I just received my Viper MAx 3000 yestersday ( a day EARLIER then I was suppossed to!) and it looks like a quality unit. The freespool knob feels like it has definite "stops", the power and ground wire are HEAVY which implies they are quality, the snatch block is heavy as well. There's even grease on the four corners where it will be bolted to the mount plate. Overall, it appears like I made a good decision. We'll see how it is on the install and in use before I pass a final judgement though..

Hey Guys,
REALLY rewarding thread to read. Our products aren't perfect but we work extremely hard to put the best possible product out there. Our VIPER winches are all TS-16949 certified and made with military grade materials. When so many seem to be cheapening their stuff, we've (right or wrong) taken the philosophy to ramp up quality everywhere we can.

Remember you guys get 5% off any purchase for being members of the forum. It's FORUM5 in the discount code box on the final page of checkout.

And you are right.....the widespool winches have 65' of cable -- the longest in the industry.

Have a great night.
