Best place to buy WARN M8000

Hunk it's time to just buy a good winch once for my rubicon build. Thinking M8000 with synthetic rope. Any vendor sales for them or rebates worth catching this month. Figure avoid amazon but see what happens. Can savvy offroad do anything on them planning a pretty big order with them soon I like buying all in one place!

Amazon's price for WARN's is usually high.

But, hold the phone! It just so happens that WARN is a new WF vendor. Who woulda thunk it?

Shoot em a PM, and see what they'll do for you (rebate, free shipping, etc)

Also, I have the M8000 and am impressed with the quality. I also purchased the soft cover in an attempt to limit the effects of mother-nature and keep winter raod chemicals off it

Thanks guys,

Sent a message to Warn on the forum see the turn around time. I figure I have the money to why cheap myself on the winch this round. I still can't justify spending all that for their top notch ones but I will be far from using it enough. This will be above and beyond my needs but least its a well built fixable winch.

The 1st time you are many miles from pavement, in the Mtns, in the middle of no-where, and you are stuck, the M8000 will pay for itself

Just an FYI, you can find a number of authorized retailers here:
Warn Industries - Where to Buy

You'll likely find the best prices at these vendors, too.

Warn Reliability

I have had/used Warn for about 40 years. Down to 2 OLD M8000's now. Had 5 at one time. One has been laying out in the Pole Barn in Minnesota for the past 10 years. Brought it down to New Mexico and decided to rebuild it. Works but looks horrible, of course.

Twisted off 2 of the bolts holding the cross bars above the drum. Had to drill one out just to get the ends off those bars even then. Opened it up and looked like new inside the drive end. Motor had some surface rust on the inside a little. Cleaned up almost like new, down to bare metal.

Went online and set up to order the parts necessary. Came to $11.00. These winches were used in logging for firewood in Idaho where we would drag dead pine trees up 50' canyon walls with them.

Will give it 3 coats of etching primer and a final coat and new labels. Will pretty well look, and run, like a new winch.

I called Warn because I could not find my serial number. It was below the lowest ones listed by 100,000. They said, just order off the latest one as we haven't changed anything anyway and the part numbers you would get with the older serial numbers will be cross referenced to the new numbers anyway.

That's amazing


On separate note. Of I go with a synthetic line, will I need anything different for winch recovery items? Just as long as its for same line size wire or rope right?

nope

Just be sure you get a couple (yes 2) snatch blocks and at least one good strap with loops at each end. Need about 4 good clevis (D rings?). If you are going out (way out) then it is good to get a couple axles with one end cut to a four sided point for anchors. Also need the short 5lb tack hammer to drive them in. Also short foldable spade. Doesn't do much good to have a winch and nothing to anchor to.

When installing a winch on the front it works for me to always make sure I can integrate a 2" receiver into the mix. That way, I can hook the trailer on the front and use the winch for loading it. I have loaded a LOT of stuff that couldn't be loaded by 3 people without the winch and have done it alone. Just need that 8,000 lbs of "come here".

Check with Chris at jeepaddons. He is great to work with. He is in the vendor section. I just bought a Engo 10,000lb with wireless remote and YJ mounting plate for $379 to my door. Can't beat that deal.

Well I had an ENGO 8k last round with steel cable. But although I only used it three times, it did the job perfect. One mud stuck and a few house uses of lifting a beam. Otherwise I can't complain kid who has jeep still using it fine I kept it oiled and covered. I figured do it right this round but in all honesty I REALLY don't see much hardcore trail use where I will depend on a winch everyday. If I use it once a month I would be amazed. And probably wouldn't be cause I'm stuck but for cars on trailers or crap like that. So still in back of my head I want to save some cash and buy a ENGO again, except 10k and synthetic rope. Still 500 bucks. Instead up near a grand for m8000 and synth rope.

I should just stick to the ENGO as solid and well built the warn is, as most my spare vehicles ill be amazed if I have this jeep more than a Year.

Well after hard searching, amazon all that, turned put quadratec won buy $50 bucks. Either way all damn expensive. Well that was what I wanted and I ripped it all off at once. Did M8000 SYNTHETIC rope, warn winch cover, and a warn bag w snatch block some more shackles I didn't need at all, and rope instead of chain. Was money but I'm tired of ripping the stuff out of my truck. Liked the bag setup I use to have but wasn't mine he wanted it back. Got my own now I can leave in all the time never loose it. Man w all this money in extras in jeep I'm scared to park anywhere w topless setup now.

Brown truck just dropped.off a.M8000 with wire rope i bought on amazon last week they were asking $608. Then this week i checked and they were down to $540. Plus i am a prime member - so shipping is paid for. Plus this purchase qualifies for current Warn rebate of$50. So total will beabout $490 when i send in for the rebate. Decided to.get this one. I have also ordered a winch plate from Taboo Customs in Illinois - thought i'd buy American. This is my first winch, will be looking to test it out at Rausch Creek sometime this summer.

I would say best place to buy it (lowest price I've seen) is Warnfactoryoutlet.com

It's not used or refurb stuff, dont let the name fool you.
