No, I read it correctly. If they are starting to ship the parts out of the country for a better price, they are eventually going to start shipping them to china. It's all down hill from here. Its sad to say the least.

Just a new line to compete with china winches. The major change he said was to the plantery gear but im not sure what the difference is.

$60, plus an $80 rebate thru July. Makes it very tempting.

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
04-23-2011 05:34 PM
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...

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
04-22-2011 09:07 PM
Jeepzcb09 what would u guys get then?? M8000 or vr8000
04-22-2011 08:44 PM
darkproximity parts were from other countries, but assembled in the states..

The news is here:... | Facebook

Warn's facebook w/info on this winch..
04-22-2011 08:37 PM
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.

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?
