    you have a link or a pic of your plow setup?

    never heard of High Country?
    I won't bash a product I haven't looked at or know anything about.

    what type of shape is it in? has the plow been used at all?

    You should look into getting a winch to lift that imo. Your going to get sick of it real quick.

    Neither has my VIPER winch, and the customer service is top notch to boot (And a good bit cheaper than a Warn).

    I recommend a 3000lb Viper Max. with steel cable, then swap out the steel cable for a good strap to lift the plow (I use a Tusk ATV tow strap from Rocky Mountain ATV, $10)

    Does the plow work? I wouldn't spend money if I already had something that worked.

    I would however buy a winch. Manual lifts are faster, but they wear you down on big storms.

    +1 on the Warn. I have mine underwater all the time, buried in mud, never cleaned and it performs flawlessly. A little tight installing it but I love it.
