We have a VR in Dad's 60. It's a fine winch, for occasional use I guess. It's slow, much slower than my M8000, but for a winch that Dad might use once in a decade, it makes sense.
I would certainly consider another one whenever I get around to putting a bumper and winch on my 60, because it would be pretty much only for emergency use, but if I had the choice--I'd go with an M series, or a Ramsey instead just for peace of mind. Besides, I keep finding uses for the winch on the faux-lux (the M8000), and I wouldn't do that with the VR just for fear of wearing it out.
But for an occasional use, so far it seems decent, just slow.
