|tiny terror||Thanks for the link Jack. I'm going to have to give them a call. The serial doesn't match with any of the serials they have listed so I'm reading something wrong or not understanding what they're looking for.|

Here's the Warn page you need. It has everything you are looking for. Odds are you have a 12 volt version, but make sure you check based on serial numbers off your winch. 24 volt versions are going be way more intensive to install.

|tiny terror||Yeah, missing. I have to buy one.|

Chris there should be a control box for it that either attaches to the winch or can be mounted elsewhere.
You can probably also download the manual off of www.warn.com
Check Ebay for the winch control. Should be able to get one pretty cheap.
That's a great winch you got.

He says it's missing the.... remote? Not sure. I'm going to call warn and get the instruction book to go with it and see what else I need.

I'm short... and blonde... and well... hell I don't know. I'm not even all that nice. One of those weeks.

I think it's a female thing, or maybe she just knows the right people. Networking is a good thing sometimes

|erickpl||How you manage to get all this free stuff???|
|05-10-2007 08:19 PM|
Hahahaha, actually I ended up talking to a guy from my father's woodworking class and I'm heading out to get a free slab roller and a kiln for my studio. The winch has got to wait until I have time and my buddy has time.
Man, it's been a good week.

|1BLKJP||Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, it's now 7 hours later. Do you have a winch yet?|
|05-10-2007 10:25 AM|
Thanks fellas and chick. I'm hoping to get a chance to go over and pick it up today some time. They have their kids in a million things so even though he lives down the street he's hard to catch. I'm hoping he tossed it in the back of his wife's pickup so she brings it this morning.
I'm not sure why he would have a winch laying around but he's got a tractor and welding equipment and just about everything else at his house, I wouldn't be surprised to find all sorts of stuff over there.
Coolio, spacers. I can do that
|05-10-2007 10:01 AM|
Or a much cheaper version from Harbor Freight for about $40.00. They have one for a Jeep TJ.
If your front end sags a bit, you can add 3/4" spacers to your front springs and be good to go.
One thing to keep in mind, if this winch is an 8274, the mounting pattern is DIFFERENT than any other winch, so you'd need a special mounting plate for it (or drill holes in your new mounting plate).
|05-10-2007 01:59 AM|
|1BLKJP||Assuming it is useable for you Tiny all you'd need is a 180 dollar warn TJ winch plate which will still allow you to use your front bumper. Nice score.|

|amy||Hmmm... Cool! Thanks, Bill.|
|05-09-2007 07:21 PM|
|BILLG||Amy You don't need to reinforce your bumper.The winch installs on a winch plate you bolt to the frame.Terror if your front end sags just replace the spacers in your lift with longer ones to compensate for the lift.They come in different lengths.Bill|

|4point||It does not matter what type of winch it is, tiny you just need to let me try it out first. Wanna make sure it safe, I'll let you know if its any good.|
|05-09-2007 06:00 PM|
Do you still have the stock bumpers?
I want a winch, too, but I need to either reinforce my stock bumpers or get something beefier to put the winch on.
|05-09-2007 04:56 PM|
Post up what it is here after you pick it up. We can then tell you if it will work or what it is worth in a trade so you do not get in over your head.
|05-09-2007 04:26 PM|
|tiny terror||I don't know yet. He's at work right now, so I'm going to get it tonight or tomorrow.|

|Scout||What kind of Warn winch is it?|
