|wasurfer86||i asked one of the guys from northridge 4x4 about them and he said they started making them to try and compete with the chinese winches. i told him that they were already competing with the chinese winches and were winning, and that ive never heard anything bad about warn.|

I have to agree with the "lifeboat" mentality, though. I don't even buy cheap jeans, why would I buy a cheap winch??
BUT, a cheap winch has a better chance of working than NO winch. Some people (myself included) just can't justify spending $600+ for a "uber" winch.

|Ted_D||I had a $1600 Warn M12000 and the motor was stamped "Made in Brazil". I would still choose Warn over any other but I'm sick of hearing this made in America crap when it isn't true. I thought it was sort of funny for a few of their employee's to jump in and also got a few nasty emails. LOL|

|Irongrave||IMO the M8000 is a better investment i'm not sure i'd trust the new line of winches for a long line or multi pull operation|

|Jeepzcb09||From what the warn facebook link says all warn winches are made that way, componets from other countries and assembled in the usa, if thats true why not save a few bucks and get the cheaper one?IDK lol|

|robby1207||Looks like a smittybilt to me with the warn name lol...|

|Mud||The cost difference between the M8000 and the new VR8000 is only 60 Bucks if it were a couple hundred then maybe... Plus things like Winches I have a lifeboat take on it. Would you trust your life or your families life to a $200 lifeboat instead of saving a little longer for the $1,000 one. Would suck to be on a trail winching out of a hole and it not work but hey we saved $60. Just my .02 cents.|

|darkproximity||guess it depends on your wallet.. if warn will replace broken parts of their winches.. then i say get the cheaper one, break them all day long if they're gonna get fixed lol more gas and beer money with the leftovers :P|

|Jeepzcb09||^^exactly thats what im thinking,anyone else?|
|04-22-2011 08:32 PM|
|convict27||I was wondering the same thing. It is hard to imagine them coming out with a winch that cheap that was made in the states.|

The new line of Warn winches...
Warn has a new series of winches out,the VR series.Now i had the Warn M8000 picked out until i saw these, they look nice,made by warn, and a quit a bit cheaper.Has anyone herd anything about of these?Do u think warn went to china?
Heres a link to the new VR8000.For me its between the M8000 and the VR8000,what do u guys think.Also there is a $80 rebate on all warn winches through quadratec.
Warn 86245 - WARN VR8000 Winch - Quadratec
