Anyone got experience with Viper and Superwinch? 

I am debating between the Terra 45 super and the Viper Max 5000 wide body for my Terxy 4.  We already own two superwinch terra 35 on RZRs and they have been good so far. 

I like the fact that the Viper has 10' more rope and 500 more lbs of pull power.  With a 1700 lbs machine more is always nicer.

The superwinch draws virtually half the amps at all pull weights though.  That IMO is huge and may be the deciding factor.

Does anyone have any insights on either of them?

no experience sorry, but I'd opt for the lower current draw of the Superwinch.  Less strain on battery and charge system!

If the Terra Supers have been good / dependable in the past, I'd stick with them. 

If we're not suppose to eat come they're made of meat?

When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid.
