    I would get a winch first. You're gonna get stuck. With lockers, you'll just get yourself stuck worse. My .02

    I would go with the locker, places you would get stuck before will be passable now. However you are always going to get stuck or in a situation where a winch would be nice but I have found my hilift suitable for winching till i have more cash for a winch. Go with the locker.

    I agree.

    I use my lockers all the time and my winch rarely, but when you need a winch, you really need a winch.
