    why is this in 2nd gen builds :confused:

    the warn m8000 is awesome seal the solenoid butyl rubber and silicon then your golden buddy. i have one and i love it! a bunch of other members have the m8000 as well and really seem to like it but, there are other choices in your price range. amazon has them for like 530 bucks which is better than most places i have seen.

    you can't go wrong with a warn winch they pretty much are the standard by which others are judged from the research i did when looking for mine.

    good luck on the winch and may i suggest synthetic line from viking master pull or amsteel as the wire rope is a pita to stretch and spool just throwing that out there.
