That's pretty much the same price it always is on Amazon (at least since August since I've been looking to buy a winch). Not that it isn't a good price, but if you waiting for that killer price before you buy one it's nothing special.

I bought my M8000 from Amazon last month for $540 shipped and Warn has a $50 rebate going till the end of the year, so I'll have $490 in mine when all is said and done. I haven't had to use it yet, but I've seen an M6000 rigged with a double line (snatch block) pull the TJ it was mounted on plus a 3/4 ton 4x4 Dodge Diesel that was hooked to the TJ plus a 1/2 ton 4x4 Dodge gas burner that was hooked to the 3/4 ton while trying to recover a S-10 Blazer from a mud hole. It drug all three vehicles and the Blazer remained in the mud. :rofl: I have no doubts that an M8000 is way overkill for my TJ. :cool:

What bumper did you use? I was thinking of :
WARN 61853 Rock Crawler Front Bumper


Do I also need the
WARN 37170 Winch Mounting Plate AND WARN 61855 Rock Crawler Grille Guard Tube ?

Warn's reputation for quality is sterling. And all you really need is a winch mounting plate which will allow the winch to be mounted onto nearly any bumper.
