GoldenSahara00 I like my engo. It works and looks good and pulls well. Price was good. But I supposed the warranty and quality of a warn would be nice. i looked for a used one for a whlie but couldn't find one. See if you can.

a giant fallen tree to clear a trail

a killer 94 zip line...thats funny.
you just gave me an idea down by the river.

and i love how people talk about life saving equ. the thing is if i knew it were going to be life or death and i need to trust my winch, i wouldnt trust even a WARN. id be carring another for of transportation like a 50-85cc dirt bike that could fit in the back.either that or a pogo stick.

NewYJOwner The Rough Country RS9500 with standard cable on my YJ....



I like it for the price, Love the Wireless Remote Feature.

just4fun This just teaches me to do more research on the products that I buy.as far as liken the winch I've only used it once and that was to re spool the cable after I installed it. It was a tight fit on the poison spyder bumper.
03-02-2011 11:05 AM
just4fun I don't know what im being other then being a little mad cause I don't like being told one thing and its another. Ill get over it im a big boy now and have been feeding myself since I was 30. It was hard enough to buy a winch knowing that its alot of money and it wont get used much. And I really wanted to buy a warn but just couldn't see spending my house payment on one.
03-02-2011 10:42 AM
dmiller369 well im really considering the rc9500 winch. does anyone have this, or has heard anything about it?

for the winch and mounting plate together im looking at about 333.00 before taxes cause of 10% discount.

333 (cost of winch set up)divided by 75(cost of tow truck) is about 4.5 times.

im sure ill get my moneys worth untill i can afford a WARN. t

RC also has a 2 year warrenty!

I dunno if you're being facetious or not but, really, none of Milemarker's electric winches are made in the US.

Sorry to tell ya bud but I have to believe your winch is manufactured in their China factory. Read down near the bottom at this link: MileMarker
I don't think there is a below $400 winch that is made in the U.S.

The only Milemarker winches that are made in the US are their hydraulic winches. All of Milemarker's electric winches are made in China.

To me, the best $300-400 winch would be a used Warn, Tabor, Ramsey, or Superwinch S9000 or X9, all of which are made in the U.S.

I just looked into this winch since you listed it and I'm pretty interested. Are you happy with it? Hard to believe its made in the USA for that price!

TOKKIE I'm in the same boat, want a winch but will not use it very much also have two kids and a mortgage so can't afford a warn. I ordered the superwinch lp8500 last night from amazon.com. I got the winch, smittybuilt mounting plate and 3x30 recovery strap for $453 shipped.

Yeah I believe the Warn winch plate works with a stock bumper and you have to have the Warn winch plate to mount the Warn grille guard.

That's one thing about the cheaper winches that is somewhat stressed is that they are for an occasional pull and not constant duty like the heavy duty versions, which doesn't bother me because I bought it for that once or seven times in life where you need it. Where I wheel, you can get by fine with out it. No need to spend huge amounts of cash on something that may only get used 2 or 3 times.

NewYJOwner Rough Country has a couple winches in that price range, for 399.95 you can get the 9500 with synthetic line and aluminum fairlead, or 299.95 the 9500 with standard cable.

It was a good value at $319.00. I would stay away from Smittybilt anything.

KillerSloth StreetSideAuto.com had the Warn M8000 for $440 but that deal is long gone. It was free shipping and no tax so $440 delivered. I was lucky enough to get one though

Maybe wait to see if they have a sale again (it was $100 off orders over $500).
