I'll throw a couple in...

The first one here is a bit dated (1983), it's my Dad in front of my first vehicle. He bought the 1980 CJ-5 brand new with the 8274 mounted in front, as a dealer-added OEM option. Growing up around the mountains in WA state (I was in the backseat in the first picture - 7 for those counting), this winch cemented itself in my mind as mandatory equipment. The 151 Iron Duke he purchased with it, didn't by any measure - a small block took it's place during my reign...

Fast forward 30 years, and in the second pic my 2.5 year old is patiently waiting why I'm on the camera end, hooking up a fallen tree. I purchased my 8274 by agonizingly driving down to Oregon (the family part) to snag it for $300. Took it apart, looked new on the inside. So painted it - wired it up to find at least a couple of solenoids fried. Went ahead and converted from the four solenoids to the common sense Albright controller (god I love the internet, this forum for situations such as these - a true no brain er), and hardwired the OEM winch controller into the cab (with plenty of wire so I can still be outside the vehicle). I previously forgot to mention that after the solenoids were converted, the original electric motor was shot. A quick search in the forum, as well as ebay, provided me with an upgraded motor (over the original 78) version, as well as upgraded electronics for a grand total of $200 over the purchase price of $300 -> $500 total. Thus the last picture with the large insulating rubber hose, protecting large gauge wires. While exploring the woods [with the winch] with my young ones (almost 3 and 1), the piece of mind/insurance provided make it immeasurably worth it...

Picked up a Jeep Special Equipment one for the Scrambler. It works just fine but want to restore it to go with the finished Scrambler. Also have one on the LJ

Just resize them in any photo editing program. Easy breezy.

That' a great score!!

Every used 8274 I've seen for sale, lately, has been $400-600.

A few weeks ago, there was CL ad for a brand new, never been mounted, still in the box mid-80s 8274. IIRC, the guy was asking over $1000 for it. I assume he got it, too, because the ad only lasted a few days.

Congrats!
