First and foremost I would have to ask which one of your winches has the least amount or 0 parts from China? I don't care if some or all the parts come from other parts of the world, just not China.FYI, happy to answer any questions about any of our winches including our VR EVO.
The Cascadia Flipster is working well for me. https://www.cascadia4x4.com/collect...-flipster-winch-license-plate-mounting-system...Next on the list is how to remount the front plate...
Congrats on your decision and purchase. Always nice to finally settle and make a move! I also have a Comeup and I’ve been pleased. As far as license plates go, I put one of these on and give it . Solid build, not flimsy at all. No signs of annoying vibrations while in motion.Well, a decision was made. I got the Comeup. I called the company and spoke with them a little. Parts and service shouldn't be an issue, if they are at any point needed or do become an issue I'll be sure to inform. So far I like it, but I haven't done any besides mounting and tensioning the hook so not exactly a fair review, but it looks good. View attachment 681439
Next on the list is how to remount the front plate since Iowa requires it, and I know most of the cops in the county. As I use it I'll update this thread so anyone searching can find info. Their has been a lot of good info contributed by y'all in here already, thanks for that, it's appreciated.
I'm on my second Chinese winch and very happy with it but it hasn't seen much use yet. It's a Stegadon (Where oh where do they get these names) from Chinazon. Previously I had a HF that was a very tough winch.
You don't want to support China? How did you type your post? If on a screen, ANY screen, it was made in China. I'm not big on Chinese products either but things like winches that see little use and the USA made variants are 5x the cost? I'm going for the bargain.
Yep. you can even do some custom work to the rebuilt unit:THIS:
I own a 15-year old Warn M15k. Had to repair it (due to my own negligence) and found all the parts and info needed for a complete noob like me to take care of the project. Works like new again.
Since you quoted me directly I'll respond but I don't want to muck up the OP's thread anymore so this is all I'll say. I am also an American business owner, though not in manufacturing. My business is also constantly challenged by non-American companies, though not China.Re read the Op's post carefully, you will see you made a mistake. He says "
I just want to not support China as much as I can".
I am very happy to see Americans buying American made products. I am an American Manufacturer. Go buy that bargain, may those chains rest lightly on your shoulders. It is America, you have a choice. Enjoy it!
I agree, we have to do what suits our needs, I have only ever needed a winch 3x in the past 37 years and even then I used a hand winch,Since you quoted me directly I'll respond but I don't want to muck up the OP's thread anymore so this is all I'll say.

My point to the OP was that you can't escape buying from China fully, and on something like a winch that is A. expensive and B. rarely used, I went with the cheaper Chinese option. I am an overlander but not a rock crawler or hard core offroader. If I were, I would no doubt have a rebuildable, American made top quality winch. I know these types are the majority of your customers and I'm sure business is good.
