    Can't beat a WARN!!!

    We had a 9500hi for many many years. It never ever ever gave us problems. Was always there when we needed it.

    i have one and it works great. nothing to compare it to tho, its my first one. i did go wheeling with a guy that had a 10500 chicago electric and it was a piece. pretty sure my 8000 could outpull his 10500.

    I have had great luck with my M8000's I have had one on my 1972 FJ 40 since 1999 and it has never let me down, and put one on my 2009 Tacoma as well. When you compare it to other winches it seems to be very close in line speed, power etc. but the price was the decision point for me as well as previous experience with Warn winches. There are faster and more powerful winches available but the I could not justify the cost or the need for anything more than the M8000 for the Tacoma. As for battery set-up both my trucks are single battery and I have never had any issues.

    I use my XRC 8000 a lot! I did put a bigger battery in my truck =more cranking amps.
    1,115CCA. And I never turn the truck off right after winching.

    I used to have a M8000....worked great. Won't participate in your poll though because I have zero experience with any other winch.
