Here is my current dilemma, I have a warn zeon 10s on my Tj. I bought another truck this weekend and it has a winch bumper on it so I'm going to put the zeon on the truck, the zeon is just to big looking on the front of the Tj. I'm looking at replace it with a m8000s. How good of a winch is the m8000, and will it have any trouble pulling the jeep loaded with gear.

I have the m8000 and it's great. It's pretty low profile. If you get it with synthetic line it's quite lightweight too. See my profile pic.

I'd keep the zeon on which ever vehicle it will get more use. M 8000 should be fine for your TJ though.
