Winch Questions
 
I am looking at buying a winch for my 89 YJ but don't want to spend a lot, I am thinking maybe a used one, can any of you give me suggestions on what I want to look for. Thanks
:confused:

Warn! M-series if you want cheap. Xi-series for nice all around, average priced winch. And then HS9500i or 8274 if you want the best.

I got the 8274 :).... Best thing iv put on my jeep. Look 4 a used one cause the new are 1300.00 I got mine used from a guy who didnt know what he had for 200.00 :) Lucky find. If u do alot of winching u cant beat the 8274 with 150 feet of 3/8 and the fast pull. Its rated at 8000 but iv pulled more with straight cable. Always rember with a winch u need a 800 cold cranking amp battery and an alternator of atleast 140 amps to make it work properly. Good luck, and make sure u put in a on off switch or fuselink so u dont catch fire!

Man, that's the best quick recommendation I've ever seen. Ya nailed this one Rob. Surprised to see it come from a power steering winch owner.

Or maybe that knowledge comes from all the stuck Jeeps I've pulled out? :p Guess you won't know til you see me out on the trail ;) hehe
