Beautiful winch. Works well and is well made. I love mine. Triple check that it fits your bumper. A lot of bumpers require modification to fit it.

From what I can tell WARN makes a mounting plate for the stock OEM bumper.

Oh on a stock bumper it will definitely fit. If you can spend the cake, it's a fantastic winch. Make sure you buy the solid rope cover accessory.

I really want a winch. It's on the list after, snorkel, body skids, bumper, and lift. I really need to start selling blood. I took some notes about winch options on a previous thread.
LINK> http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/bes...es-241614.html

TRUELY WATER AND GUNK PROOF
I like the fact that it is IP68 on all it's seals. That's as good as you can get. To get that rating it has to work over 1 meter submerged in water for over 10 minutes. If your going to get in saltwater that's more conductive to electricity that's a major plus. I would think it would hold up better to corrosion overall. Especially from Midwest salted roads. The previous M series and likely other previous warns advise to totally re-grease the gears by a professional after being submerged.

FROM JK FORUM THREAD (http://www.jk-forum.com/modified-jk-...-194788/page2/) QUOTE -I found this thread researching this issue and the M8000 (entire "M" line) is NOT waterproof. From the manual:

"No lubrication is required for the life of the winch, unless the winch has been submerged in water. If this occurs, a qualified service center must complete service as soon as possible to prevent corrosion damage. If the control pack is submerged, it must be replaced." END QUOTE

That's probably a bit excessive to cover their butts, but I have seen the inside of the gears rusted on one.

BEST LOOKING
It's the best looking winch. I like the fact that you can get a cover for the rope so it doesn't get UV damaged. Everybody knows warn, and so it's a status symbol to have on your bumper. Like was mentioned above because its not an offset design not all bumpers are cut out enough on the right side. I would guess as long as its a top mount style bumper you'd be good, but should check before laying down cash.

NOT THE BEST FOR SYNTHETIC
It's break design is not ideal for synthetic. Its more ideal for wire. Basically the way I understand it is the break is located inside of the coils axis = drum (like most winches). The zeon design is just like the previous mode warns, but this model they made the walls farther out to reduce heat build-up a bit better. They recommend only using their Spydura synthetic rope for its higher heat tolerance . I'm not trying to start rumors so please double check the following. I think that Spydura is perhaps less strong (kind of iffy on that) and likely more susceptible to fraying than Amsteel Blue(almost positive). The more high heat ropes don't hold up well to tight bends like going through a snatch strap. The heat of the breaks is mostly a problem when using the winch to lower yourself down/breaking under load. They don't advise doing that but situations can call for it.

SUPERWINCH TALON
Another option I would consider is the Superwinch Talon 9.5. It has an IP67 rating on all it's seals. That's waterproof up to 1 meter which should be good enough in my book. It has a break on the outside of the drum. That makes it perhaps the best winch for synthetic rope. It also has super fast no load spooling. I think it's the best bang for your buck if your life is going to depend on it and get used a bunch.

BEST BUDGET OPTIONS.
For the few times a year wheeler, that travels with a group, the Engo 10000s, or Recon 10500 would be on my short list. Both can be had for a good deal under $500 with synthetic.

Yes. Get the solid one (without the holes.) Keeps the sun and debris off the rope, plus it just looks cleaner.

unless i screwed up somewhere (it is possible) this will only work when mounted on top the bumper. I tired to use the solid one with my LOD bumper and it will not fit. there is no way to get it on and off since you need direct access to the front of the winch. Did I miss something?

No I don't think you missed anything... I would be mounting this on the top of the bumper

Just some clarification: Our Spydura rope has a heat-resistant sleeve on the first layer to further bolster its ability to stand up to heat. We test this rope intensively to make sure it's a world-class product, and up to repeated use on our winches.

I am really happy with this winch. I have used it to winch myself out of a stuck in Moab and helped some others in snow here in CO. Much faster than my old 9000. I was concerned about the synthetic but with my bumper/plate combo no issues. An issue I ran into in the past with synthetic was that I had a RECESSED winch bumper and the rope frayed on the back of the bumper.

I'm interested in putting a winch on my stock 2012 JK front bumper. Looks like Warn offers a plate, but that the plate is only compatible with the Warn M8274-50. Is this correct? Do you have a photo of this application, mounted on a JK? Is there a lower-profile winch that's compatible with that plate? Thanks.

We have a bunch of guys running these now! We also have one for our new 2013 JKU build we have going on. They are great! Plus, the FREE $200 accessory right now on these makes it even better!

Have not used mine for self recovery yet but managed to rescue a 2wd ranger out of a spot he did not belong. So far so good... Its a very well built/designed piece. Ordered mine thru Jason at Krawloffroad. Great company.
