5.0 Warn M8000

This winch is great for small / mid sized trucks, very durable works amazingly. You get what you pay for Warn is a great brand that’s been in the winch business for a long time. If you don’t want to be stuck get this winch! Bought it for a 2018 Toyota Tacoma TRD off-road.

5.0 Great value for something of this high quality

The perfect winch for a Jeep if you aren't looking for something too flashy but want a quality, dependable unit made in N.America. Line speed is awesome, power is solid, seems like this will stand up to years of use.

5.0 Saved me

I rolled my 2005 TJ Unliimited. Actually, it only tipped onto the driver's side. We were in the middle of nowhere, and after making sure everyone was unhurt, I realized we were miles from the closest road where I could summon help. I started to smell gasoline, leaking from the filler, as well as lube oil coming from the diff vents. I attached the winch cable to a tree about 60' to the right of the Jeep at an almost 90 degree angle. The winch pulled it onto the tires in about a minute. We were able to drive out and got home safely. The insurance company totaled the Jeep due to the damage and because it "rolled". I installed another M8000 on my new 2013 JK. Don't leave home without a Warn on your rig!

Q: Hello I have a 1990 Toyota 4x4 truck and was wondering the main differences good & bad between your Older m series winches & the newer cr evo made over seas?  I understand the evo is h20 proof & newer technology but is it really better? Answer this question

A: You can't go wrong with either winch. Both series have their positives so it depends on what you are looking for and how you plan to use the winch. We have a lot of customers who still buy the M series because those were the first winches on the market and have proven their worth. Then we get a lot of customers who want the new technology. It really depends on the end user.

Q: I have a 2007 4Runner with a Shrockworks Front Bumper. Their literature states "Hidden winch mount accommodates most non-integrated solenoid winches up to 9500 lbs." Does this model have a "non-integrated solenoid"? If not, which Warn models do? Answer this question

A: Thanks for the inquiry Dan, the Warn M8000 Self-Recovery Winch part # WAR26502 this winch has a non integrated solenoid and should work just fine.

Q: Hi, I have a tow truck which i operate, and i would like to know if this winch would be able to pull an inoperable S.u.v for eg. a Nissan Pathfinder or Toyota Highlander Or Ford Pickup. onto the flatbed of my truck. Please look into it and respond. Thanks Answer this question

A: Thanks for the question. It should not have any problem pulling the truck/ car on a trailer, but this winch is not designed to be used for loading and unloading trucks/ cars. You will want to look into an industrial winch for this use. Thank you

In 1948, Arthur Warn founded Warn Industries to construct locking hubs for surplus World War II Jeeps. Ten years later, the Warn winch was manufactured to fill the need for a reliable recovery tool to aid off-roaders stuck in challenging situations. Since then, Warn has grown to offer a wide range of gear with the hallmarks of durability and affordability. 1988 spawned the aftermarket industry's first ATV winch and today their PowerSports line of winches ranks among the most esteemed in the industry and jeepers call on Warn for electric, hydraulic and severe duty components that get the job done.
