    everyone will reccomend warn i will also. their products are high quality. the mile marker ones are not bad also.
    i also its not very heard to do there are threads on it. its usually harder to get the old one out than putting the new one in

    Go with warn. Installing is pretty easy. I swapped my auto lockers on my 99 super duty to the warn and it only took about 15 minutes per side
