Just a reminder..Warn has a rebate going on now. I get $100 back on my Zeon 10S
Check out Quadratec or Warn site for the rebate form.
You need to purchase between Nov 1, 2013 and Dec 31, 2013 and send it in before Jan 31, 2014.

|triggerfin||I have been really happy with my M8000 so far on my 13 JKUR, heavily loaded (gobi rack, 35s, front and rear heavy bumpers, full rotopax, camp gear, etc.). I was concerned it wouldn't be enough winch but so far so good. I slid down a snow bank in CO last June - self-recovered up a farily steep, snow covered grade no problem - if I hadn't had it I would have spent the night in the jeep and potentially even lost it. 2 weeks ago I winched a new jeep cherokee out of the sand in Cape Hatteras NC - he was buried to the axle with no tires making contact - no problem and didn't use a snatch block. Good enough for my needs.|

|vacca foeda||Again, if you aren't too concerned on price, go for a 10-12k. While the 8-9 would probably pull you out alright, especially with a snatch block, you may have trouble helping others who get stuck. I've got a 10k on my 2 door in case I need to help out a 4door or a bigger pickup.|

I put a Warn Zeon 10-s on my 10a and love it. If I had to do it all over again I would probably go Zeon 12. Same size as the 10 just mo power!
I would also weigh your jeep. I stopped at a weigh station on the why and mine weighed in at a hefty 5900lbs. Seems I read somewhere on this forum that you should get at least 1.5 times the vehicle weight.

I'm just glad you asked this question. I asked the same question on a Facebook page but spelled "wench" wrong and was offered a few ex girlfriends, wives, mother in-laws and sisters.
Thanks for the great info too!!!!

|Radioman||I put a Warn 8274 on my new 78' FJ40 and it was still working great when I sold the Land Cruiser last year. I put a 9.5 cti on the Jeep because of Warn's great reputation and value for the money.|

|vacca foeda||If money is no object, warn. Quality and history. I went engo because money is an object. Quality and people's experience seem to be on par with warn, but it doesn't have the history.|

I have two Warn winches. One that I bought about 12 years ago and it's on it's 3rd Jeep. I've had to replace the cable but it's a trooper.
I also just bought an 8274 that was originally sold in 1977. It's old and the drum release is stuck so it does need a rebuild but it does work just fine. I'm going to do a little rebuild of it and throw it on my CJ. I should be able to get another 35 years without any trouble.
