I know I'm going to be over budget but I want to stay as close to 1k as I can
I am thinking about a Warn winch also. Either the Warn 26502 M8000 or the Warn 87800 M800-s. I think the only difference is the synthetic cable. I am wondering how much of a difference the cable makes.

Hmm, bio diesel. If they made a tank that mounted in the stock spare tire location with a fill nozzle by the wheel arch it would be much more friendly for me. But 25K is pushing it, a lot.

Steel cable typically adds 30-40 lbs. synthetic rope can be damaged more easily if dragged over rocks. Trade off between weight and strength.

I know there are several Chinese built winches of good reputation, especially if you break them down, clean them then use a high end grease before install. Warn for me is less about product quality and more about investing in my country by supporting a local manufacturer.

I have considered both but can't make up my mind. There is a hell of a difference in price. I have read alot about the smittybilt, and I guess as long as you regrease it and relocate the solinoid it's good to go. You got yours with the synthetic line already installed, what is the weight difference? The website is confusing, I think it has the one with synthetic line weighing more than the one with steel line. I could get the wife to agree to this one. How hard is it to regrease it?

Tis is the best plan!


On another note....Pres is going to make football 2 hand touch and will be eating his wangs during the Super Bowl....smh
