They manufacture offroad accessories with the highest standards, because when you need that extra degree of power, Mile Marker assures you, you won’t be left stranded.
CAMP DOHA, KUWAIT (March 17, 2003)
Preparing HWMVV's for war in Iraq, removing Warn winches and installing MileMarker Hydraulic Winches.
We are now importing these amazing Winches from the USA.
Initially my interest was piqued, not by their legendary reliability or their
mechanical efficiency and simplicity.
No it was the simple fact that had no surge currents when operating a winch.
If you have a car with delicate Electronics, such as a Fuel injection
Computer, called an ECU, and operate any high current machinery such a winch
from your running car you will get surges.
What happens is that the Alternator loafs away supplying a few Amps and all of a sudden there is this MASSIVE draw. It then compensates for it by charging more.
Switch that draw of and again it takes a short while for the Alternator to relax. Meaning that your Electronic equipment might see a few 100 volt for a short time.
Not good, is an understatement !

Mile Marker History
MileMarker designs and creates the most unique products for your offroad vehicle, including our legendary Hydraulic Winch system for the U.S. Military. For over a decade, MileMarker has been manufacturing and supplying parts for Chrysler, Rockwell International & Dana Corporation. The quality of their products is assured.
MileMarker manufactures Off road Accessories such as Winches, Mounts, Air Compressors, Transer-case components, Lock-out Hubs as well as manufactures many gears, brackets and shafts for other companies.
The revolutionary MileMarker winches set the standard for the new millennium utilizing the vehicle's original power steering pump as a hydraulic source.
Every day more than 200 million power steering pumps operate flawlessly. Used in all types of vehicles, under every condition, from 50 below to 135 degrees above, the pump must perform for years without service or adjustment. It has to withstand every type of abuse without failure. Having a built-in governor (the pressure relief valve), it is impossible to overload or overwork the pump. The only maintenance required is checking fluid in the system and refilling if needed. Steering is arguably the most important function while driving, so the power steering pump has evolved into the most reliable system on vehicles today. It never fails unless the fluid leaks out for some reason, such as a torn hose. MileMarker chose to design a winch to use this continuous reliable power supply over the battery power used by competitors. After rigorous testing, we learned it was the right choice. We found the pump would operate continuously while pulling heavy loads with our winch and actually ran cooler when winching then it did while driving off-road. Our tests have been confirmed by many others independently, including magazines worldwide, 2 * years of testing by the U.S. Military, and testing by the University of Technology in Australia.
MileMarker has passed the most rigorous testing, earning multiple contracts to replace electric winches on military HUMVEE's using the factory installed power steering pumps.
We bring in these Winches:
More models to be incorporated as the demand is (hopefully) expected to grow.
