Found these. They have the Mile Marker one in stock. Also the 8,000lb Superwinch one. I'm not sure which one you want but the one for $82.95 is in Ohio if you were willing to wait until Thursday for it.

17lbs at $100+

The last time I used a snatch had to have been with my father 20 years ago. He always had the heavy duty 50+lbs version, there were a PITA to haul around especially wheeling on uneven/rocky terrain. So last week I was helping my brother lift a 400lb beam for his garage remodel. I could have used my brand new purdy winch and lifted that sucker no problem, well I could have if I had a snatch block. So here I am purchasing a snatch block.

Of the three choices are there any significant pro/cons? It will be primarily used for wheeling but you never know what will come up.

funny, one year I asked for this list for Xmas. My family is not into cars nor wheeling and were about to commit me when they got the list!
