What is the best winch for a Toyota Tacoma?

I am looking to install a winch on my Tacoma but I want to make sure the one I buy will be worth the money—what is the best winch for a Toyota Tacoma?

If you plan on adding a winch to your Toyota Tacoma, you can’t go wrong with anything produced by:
  • WARN®
  • Smittybilt®
  • Superwinch®
But if you’re looking for the absolute best winch for your Tacoma, we’d recommend the WARN® VR EVO 10S winch.
This winch can be purchased for approximately $864 and has received excellent customer reviews because it is affordable (as far as winches go, anyway) and durable. The WARN® VR EVO 10S has a 10,000 lb capacity, features an IP68-rated waterproof housing to protect the synthetic rope, and can be controlled wired or wirelessly by a two-in-one remote.
As is the case for any winch, you will need to purchase a compatible bumper, install plate, or some other mount before you can install this winch.
