Well after 2 years my 3500lb viper will not winch in anymore under a load it will work but when it gets in a load like winching anything out it wont do anything. I was wondering do I have to buy a whole new winch or just replace a part?

Electric motors don't get "weak". If it works no-load it should work under full load. But if your contactor is fried it might not pass enough current for the motor to do its job.
If you're out of warranty maybe you have their older contactor and not the improved oil-filled version? Try that...They may even send you a free replacement since they do know of issues with the old one.
