Winch worth?

I bought my jeep close to a year ago and this winch came with it. I don't do much off roading and am wondering what it's worth. I'm the second owner of the Jeep and I got it with about 35k miles, so the winch has not received much use, if any at all. What would you all say is a fair asking price for this? I see online you can get them new for right around $1k. I have the bag it came with that has a snatch block, tow strap, gloves, and the winch remote control.

It's a little dusty and stays under a Warn cover at all times...

I've bought these winches used (and in much worse condition) for $500 a few times. I buy an average of 2 winches/year (winch truck, not Jeep) due to extreme use and have found that used Warns hold up better than any other. One of these days I might just pop for a new Warn.

In this good of condition, I'd say $650-$700, give or take, depending on region, including the snatch block, etc. CL will be a decent place, but WF Classified might be better. Just be sure to post "Local pickup" in your ad. Don't want to have to pop for shipping on one of those.

For a used winch, I would say about 50-75% of a sale new price, not the price listed on WARNs site, but a typical price. Even for a like new winch, after about 75% of the cost of new, I would buy new for the warrenty.

Like my warn xd 9000i retails for $1485, Amazon - $1025, Quadratec - $940 + shipping ($1018) (don't know if you could get the free shipping on that through here)
What have we got?
We have one heavily armed Recreational Vehicle

So do you plan on keeping your Jeep ???
I would think that a Jeep with a Winch , especially a quality winch like a Warn, would certainly increase the value of the Jeep !!

Thanks for the info. And yeah I plan on keeping the Jeep for a while. I don't off road so there is really no need to have a winch just for looks. And I'm not for sure selling it. Just was wanting the info in case I decide to. I'd rather someone use it on a weekly basis then me to never touch it...
