Price: $0.01
Pros: Better than having nothing.
Cons: Cracked casing. Old.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got this from a friend that had it sitting in his garage. I had no recovery equipment prior to this, so it is better than nothing. The casing is cracked on the right side, but it seems to work well. I've done some test pulls and it is very strong.

Price: $540.00
Pros: lots of power slick looking carries the warn name
Cons: doesn't have an automatic brake.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: All in all this is a wonderful winch, as long as your jeep has a good footing if you are pulling someone else out. The only set backs I have found is there is not a cover for a winch if you have your control box on the top mount position, and on the jeep there really isn't really any room to mount the box on the back as all the covers call for. And it doesn't have an automatic brake, so when you let the button go it doesn't stop spooling right away, it will spool about 4 inches more, this can make it a PITA when you are spooling it back up to keep driving. But other than that, its pretty good. I will recommend it to everyone.

Cons: none

Comments: I waited for the off road show to get a good sale price. For a little less than $500.00 I got a fantastic winch. The guys at 4west did the install and mounted the winch on a nice Hansen bumper. The M8000 is a workhorse and it won't break the bank for those of you on a budget.

Comments: Great winch, only thing I can find to complain about is the noise. It is very loud. This winch was given to me because the guy said it didnt work. Cleaned the solenoids and have been using it every since.

Comments: I got this winch 6 years ago and it is still holding strong. The only problem i have with it is the speed but i guess i souldnt complaing its faster than alot of winches out there. If you are looking for a durable inexpensive winch the M8000 is for you.

Price: $550.00
Pros: Easy install and enough pulling power for a YJ.
Cons: I wish it would have come with the vinyl cover, as I had to buy mine for $40, but it has been well worth it and has kept my winch looking and operating as good as the day I bought it.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: A great winch for the $$$ and it's a Warn so you know you're buying a quality product (not to say there are not some other outstanding winch manufacturers). It is an easy install. Make sure a good quality winch plate is used and grade 8 hardware is used to fasten the winch to the frame (because a winch is only as strong as it's mounting point).
