Installed the CSF 3 row radiator, extended my bump stops, and finished my CB radio install. Just about ready for Rausch Creek Offroad Park next weekend.

Been so caught up lately on mods that give me some help out on the trail, that I spent a lil time on some cosmetics today and Plastidipped my grille, then cleaned it up a bit.

You can't compare any of the Chinese winches to that one.

Thanks man it was! She kept up with a lot of BOR rigs and never gave me any back talk. Everyone kept asking what axles I was running since I was running all black diamond trails and they were shocked when I said it had a locked d30 upfront haha. This is my first time running a rig locked front and rear. I love it!

A new winch in the 3-400 range will not last 20+ years. Now he can rebuild that warn with quality parts and it will last another 20+ years. GOOD BUY!!!

Sure you can ... The Chinese stuff is like aluminum and Warn is like steel .

And , is there a difference between the 'old' 8274 and a fresh out of the box 8274 ? Other than the old having been tested and already broken in , with the don't have to worry about getting a scratch guarantee ...

New is not always better . New is often more expensive and likely built with the planned obsolescence mindset .
