so, i've really been looking into finally stuffing a winch in my bumper but cant decide what one to get. so far this is my criteria: 8000-9500 line pull, series wound motor, can take syn. rope.
i've looked both high and low priced and cant decide what to do.... go all out and get a 'good' winch or stay with an affordable winch since it probably wont get used a ton. The prices go from $330 to well over $1000, and i dont really want to spend much now but i'd rather wait if i decide on an expensive one than be disappointed.
here are the ones im looking at. if anyone has some experience in any of them let me hear your opinions and testimonials!
Warn: M8000, XD9000, 9.5ti
Mile marker 8000
Smittybilt XRC8 8000lb
Gorilla Winch: Silverback 8000, Midnight 8000
here are some links to a few them:
I've looked around for the best prices and Winchdepot seems to have good prices but also ebay and I've even looked on craigslist locally and i found a M8000 new for $475 or a slightly used 9.5ti for $800 and a slightly used Mile Marker 9500 for $425.
HELP me choose!
