Never heard of them before your post.. did a search, found a 9500 version on ebay for under 400 bucks.. but not much info.. could be a great deal or a waste of 400 bucks.

I dream of mine...

I have had a chance to buy a lot of winches for next to nothing...

But I'm holding out.

All I want is a Warn 9.5Ti.

It might just be me but IMHO, to me it’s the best winch ever made.

But I'm weird, I have a Jeep Watch, it's the only Watch I ever have on my wrist.

I want a Rolex real bad but until I can pay for one in cash I'm going to hold out.

I have a loan on my house and on my cars but I don't finance anything else. Every mod I have ever put on my Jeep I've paid cash for. As badly as I want my new toys I will not go into debt for it.
See you on the trail again soon,

Well, my Jeep just got a major facial, I know Jeeps are supposed to be dirty! I just want to do some minor trailing riding, nothin' complicated, and plus the addition of a winch on the front of anyting doubles the coolness.

There are other inexpensive winches out there that you can get for around the $400 mark. I have been looking at Mile Marker winches. You can get an 8000lb for about $400. 4Wheel Drive Hardware sells TMax winches in the same price range. The military uses Mile Marker winches, so they are at least a reputable company that people have heard of. We would all prefer to have a Warn Winch since they are the best out there, but I don't know when I will have a spare grand lying around.
