Okay, I know everybody is going to chime in about their Warns.
I KNOW they are good.
What I'm looking for is some direct experiences with winches in the 8-10,000 lb range.
Warn - xd9000i, x8000i, and the m8000
what is the difference between the x8000i and m8000? Is one design better?
MileMarker - e8000, e9000, se9500
Ramsey - ?? not sure of models here
T-Max - EW-10000, EW-9000, and their new integrated series
Tabor - Made by Warn, what are the opinions on the Warn-made stuff (other than the warranty)? Are these good winches?
I'm trying to find something UNDER 800.00 (preferably lower), but have a good quality winch.
I know about the 8274's and 9.5 XP and ti's, but they are out of my price range. Yes I could wait, but I have other things to do with that money as well.
What specs should I look for?
What values for those specs are considered good?
I want to make the best informed decision I can make, but don't want to break the bank doing so.
