    Looks like a great trailer. I have been wanting to upgrade mine to one with a longer rear door ramp and A/C.
    who is hatin on the trailer? I only said I don't like China made crap referring to the winch BK bought from China Freight.

    This one has two roof vents -- but one is setup & wired to be replaced with an AC unit

    I would think synthetic rope is easier to handle plus it doesn't kink like wire rope does and conforms to whatever it is that you need to tie onto but most times, a hook with a sling is used to latch onto an axle etc. The wire rope on my winch is still nice because I don't wrap it around axles etc so there's no kinks or breaks in it.

    Been looking into the jeeps for awhile now and seems like the majority like to use the synthetic rope with the winch.. I would use it in the trailer as well

    All the comments from the Jeep forum were from 2013 with the oldest post being from 8-12. Sorry but I'm still not sold on China made junk. Let me know if its still running strong 2 years from now let alone 30 I'm sick of replacing stuff that was made in China in the last 10 years or so. I do have a couple of vices that seem to be very well made but they both were made 30 years ago. I truly believe they 'used' to make good stuff but seems like anything that's made for export to the US these days is junk.

    I have a Superwinch 4500 in the trailer I sold, and a Smittybilt 9000 on the enclosed. Badlands 12000 is the same as a Smittybilt made for Harbor Freight. The jeep an 4x4 guys like it.

    i checked a lot of sites and they all claimed the Badlands12000 was a great value
