With it's fast line-speed and lower ampdraw, the VR EVO series of winches are the hardest-working standard-duty winches Warn's ever made, with tactical styling that looks great up front and at a price that won't pull you out of your budget.
Easy to install. Added mine to a road armor bumper.

Winch is well made and was easy to install. I haven’t had a chance to actually use it yet so for that reason it only a gets a 3 star rating.
4.0Well built but could still improve it.
Well build winch with good documentation and install instructions. The 2 cons i had was the pawer wire could have been a few inches longer and the wireless remote batteries were dead out of the box. Batteries are also not standard type and not easy to change.
5.0Warn VR EVO 10 Winch
Although relatively new, I have used the winch twice. Once to extract a friends truck from the snow. The second time was to pull a downed tree to the road for woodcutting. Winch worked as it should and pulled strong. Great value for the money.
I haven't actually used the winch (as a winch) so this rating is strictly concerned with the product right out of the box and installation. I was disappointed to discover that my winch had a rattle in it. It was a loose screw. I couldn't shake it out so I had to remove the cover over the electronics to find a screw within that box. The annoying part is that this screw was fully capable of shorting adjacent studs that are exposed under the cover. Also, it made quite a bit of noise that would have to be ignored during the packaging operation by the handler putting the winch in the box. The other quality issue concerns the ground cable provided. The cable had several kinks in it from having the bend radius exceeded during packaging. The insulation has a lose fit and it felt like the cable was not damaged so I used it. I expected better from this manufacturer.
Winches: WARN 9.5XP (Part Number: WAR87310 or Part Number: WAR68500), WARN XD9000 (Part Number: WAR28500), WARN M8000 (Part Number: WAR26502 or Part Number: WAR87800) NOTE: Optional hawse fairlead spacer kit part number ARB3500600 required when fitting a hawse fairlead.

will the EVO Winch mount feet forward without clocking to access gear shift?
