I had no idea when I got the Jeep if the winch was a good model or not but I knew being a Warn I could rebuild it when I got around to it. It worked great pulling itself onto a trailer but I will NOT use it under load in the current condition. The PO said he wanted to be near the winch so he could see what was going on when he used it.

There is a toggle switch on that winch! Wow, that was a PO with a deathwish! Or at least wanting a winch hook to the skull.

This is a 5721 but it is in the process of being replaced by an 8274 (requires moving the right side mount in a couple of inches). Everyone will have their own opinions, but I have a real problem with 200 lb winch bumpers and I also like to mount the winch low so the lower fairlead roller will allow the cable to be strung back under the Jeep. You get less radiator obstruction and a lower center of gravity mounting low. The fairlead only uses the Warn rollers, the rest was fabed with the bumper.

Those rollers will be replaced with these for the use of rope on the 8274.

I like that idea, I'm considering having a bumper built locally for my 8274 and wondered what the opinions are against it?

I blame it on ignorance.

I've seen what happens when a cable breaks under stress, which is why I was wary while using it just to get it on the trailer, and would never consider using as-is if it was stuck...

Move the switch in the cab.


Duffer, I like the hydraulic disc brake.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

I will eventually be getting a Bersk bumper, the one on there now is leftover from the PO. He said he hadn't run the winch in years. All I had to do was add new wiring to the battery and to the solenoids, wack the solenoids with a hammer and it started right up.
