Winches awesome

The winch works awesome the 1st time I used it was to pull a 20' Uhaul from getting stuck in snow (it was only yp to the rim but still) single line 2nd time was my fault i was showing off and got stuck in snow up to the axles and single line pulled my self out... So far so good :D

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!

Winches like no other

Winches like you expect a Warn winch to work. Haven't had to rely on it as my sole recovery tool, but I like knowing I have it incase I need it!

Best Winch out there!!!

This is by far the best deal you will ever see for a winch [$] for a WARN!!! It doesn't get any better. I have used and abused my M8000 and every single time it works flawlessly no matter how much mud, snow or how many rocks it been under. Don't wast your money on a cheep 400 knock off that only works a couple of times. By warn and it will always have your back. Either mount the solenoid to the grill or purchase a brackett! Don't forget the brackett though if that how you want to mount it. It tells you that in the product description but alot of people forget to read that part and then they whine. Awesome Awesome Winch!!!!!

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?

Asked by Dan from Centennial, CO on

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

Asked by Apogee Motors from on

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.
