Other people are going to know the real answer, but I am running the VR 10,000 on the stock battery. Once I get more lights and accessories I will switch to dual batteries.

So I went wheeling a couple weeks ago and my winch didn't work. Wireless Remote didn't work so I Plugged in the hand remote and that didn't work either. Turned out two of the leads to the winch were loose. I tightened them up and luckily the wired remote worked. The wireless on the other hand still didn't work. I will be contacting Warn about this.

Edit: Wireless Remote was fine it was just the leads.

I need to do this. As it stands I look like a circus contortionist when I switch to free spool and back.

I clocked mine three different ways before it would sit right. The best way ended up being straight up, like it came from the factory.

Winch got me out of a fairly sticky situation this past weekend. couldn't go forward or backward without taking out multiple body panels. extraction involved the winch and a come-along off the wrap-around wing of my rear bumper. made it out without a scratch.

I have an M8000 on my trail rig. Price was hard to beat at $300 from a wheeling buddy. I have the wireless controller sitting around just haven't gotten around to it as usual.

Mounted on the Marlin bumper



One of the first times I had you use it recovering another rig after a flop





Last April winching out an FJ in Twister at Barnwell Mountain




Another handy tip is to clean and re-grease the motor/gear assembly after any water or mud encounters on the trail.

Two guys I wheel with have the 10s. Lightweight aluminum and pulls fast. Their rigs are in the 6,000lb range and the warns pull them like they are attached to a fully laden shopping cart. Damn good winch IMO.

just not sure whether to go with a vr 10000 s or xeon 10000 s.

Colin how often do you use your winch??


Boone taco would you recommend it over vr 10000s?

there is about 319 dollar difference . Do i go big or go home?

2-3 times per wheeling trip, sometimes more depending on the level of the people i'm with/terrain style. or if i'm alone lol.
