Price: $539.00
Pros: Fast pull, pretty cheap
Cons: Heavy
Recommended? Yes

Comments: So far this winch has performed quite well. I'm very happy with the purchase. I suggest swapping out the cable with synthetic winch line. It is quite heavy as it is.

Pros: Works great
Cons: Can't think of any
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I've only used it once, but it was to pull the neighbor's truck out of a ditch. He slid off a muddy road and got stuck pretty bad. Used the winch with a single line pull. Pulled him out of that muck with no problem. After I pulled him out, we noticed that the truck's axle actually drug the ground most of the way out. I was pretty impressed.

Comments: This workhorse has pulled its heart out for me. The most unusual events were pulling a 3/4 2x4 pulling a 16' camping trailer out of the sand at South Padre Island. More than enough winch for the Wrangler, and reasonably priced.

Comments: I love this winch...I go wheeling with a friend who has a Blazer and this winch has recovered him many of times. The only time I have maxed it out was when he was about to roll over a 4 foot drop and with such a hard pull my battery cable termination melted so I don't know if the winch couldn't do the pull or if it just wasn't getting enough power.

Comments: The Warn M8000 is very capable on the trail and off. The wire cable makes me a bit nervous but I plan on purchasing a synthetic cable shortly.............

Comments: Great winch with many uses! Does the job of recovering my rig just fine. picked it up used and had a new winch line installed - caution, always rewind your line properly after a pull, to lenghten wire life. Also, winch controllers are diffenerent between years of manufacturer of same type winch (found out the hard way, with new winch on jeep and unable to use it since controller was in garage AT HOME!)
