5.0 Great Winch for the Price

This is a great winch for the price. Don't skimp on the winch and get a cheap model, when you need it you need a winch that is reliable and the Warn M8000 will do it!

5.0 Great Winch!!

I've used the M8000 hundreds of times by myself and on several Jeep Jamborees. It's mounted on a 2000 TJ. I literally owe my life to it, and I guarantee that it paid for itself within a few months. I've even pulled two Jeeps out of thick mud at one time (not recommended) and it had no trouble. After eight years of use, I had to get it fixed because solenoids needed replaced. It was very cheap to fix. By the time it needed help, it had been under water, mud and NW PA snow too many times to count. This winch is the best tool you can buy for off-road fun and safety. If anyone tells you it's not, they're lying to you.

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.

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.

A: Hi Steve You would need a winch mounting plate to use M8000 Self-Recovery Winch or any winch. The S/B2804 or the WAR88140 plate would work with a stock bumper. Thanks

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.
