Torn between the Warn M8000 or the Mile Marker PE800 w/ M.O.S.F.E.T

Reading specs they seem to be the same except for $100.00
I would like pros and cons if you have them. I also heard not sure if it is true but Mile Marker is a division of Warn? I go off road about once a month and have not needed one yet but by the time you do it is too late. Open to suggestions!

Well I can tell you last year I was on a switch back in the snow. The right side of the road was a cliff, when the Jeep started to slide towards the cliff I hooked the winch to a tree on the left side of the road. When I started moving again the Jeep jumped and the rear right tire fell off the edge. The only thing between me and death was my Warn M8000, Well thats my story and talk about a butt pucker moment...

I would say to check out the Superwinch EPi 9000 from Rokmen ( a forum supporting Vendor). Lifetime guarantee, draws less power, All solenoids are internal and its a great winch. I had a Warn and the last time I really needed it one of the solenoids went out. Since I was not going to carry spare parts for my winch I replaced the solenoids, sold the winch and went with the Superwinch. The Superwinch solenoids are a better design. After having both all I can say is if I was to buy another winch it would not be the high priced warn.
Mile Marker I wouldn't even compare to the other 2, at least in an electric winch.

A great read if your going to buy a winch.

I've heard more bad than good about the MileMarker winches and I have a friend who's having wiring (arc-ing) issues when trying to install his MM winch. Warn is a solid winch but you might also want to look at Ramsey. I just installed the Patriot 9500 UT with the wireless remote and in all honesty it was super easy to install. No more than 4 hours tops, and for the winch there's only 2 wires that go to the battery.

The Warn is a solid wench but they are power hogs. Be careful on long pulls that you don't kill your battery.

It's pretty hard to beat the Superwinch EPi9.0 - That's why we only carry 1 winch..

Albright solenoids w/3 year warrenty - 125' of line, external drum brake and through drum lock makes it ideal for synthetic lines, less amp draw and rated at a realistic 12v not 14v like others, and a free pulley block and roller fairlead. A better warrenty than others - A real good reputation, not 1 has failed that we know of after running and selling them for 3 years.

Pretty hard to beat at $599 shipped.

Pretty cool in cab controller and wireless remote controls are available too - not many people know about that.
