Warn VR Series Winch

Had an old Ramsey 8k on my 97 TJ when I bought it last year. It was so slow reeling in. Decided to go with the Warn VR 10k model, and am very happy with it. Have had to use it twice already in deep snow, and it did the job. Found it on Amazon with free shipping, no Cali tax for $579, had a $80 rebate from Warn and sold the old Ramsey for $150. So into a new Warn 10k winch for $379 with the Warn reputation etc. Also at the same time mounted control switches for the winch inside the cab, which makes it easier than draging the cord out when winching.

Jerry Bransford Tabor winches are fine, they were Warn's entry-level (but still made in the U.S.) winch line.

Problems with Warn VR series winches?

My Warn M8000 went when I sold my YJ. Now I'm back in the market and looking to put another Warn on my TJ. I was going to go with the XD9000, but then I saw this new VR line that Warn put out. Sure it's a little slower, but for the price you get the quality of a Warn and save a few bucks for other mods. However, last night when I was searching various forums it's seems like most of the ones I saw for sale were the VR series. Coincidence or is there a reason for this?
