    Looking for a winch, came across these.
    Smittybuilt XRC 10-http://www.4wheelparts.com/Winches-Winch-Accessories/XRC-10-Winch-Comp-Series.aspx?t_c=18&t_s=300&t_pt=100702&t_pl=6426&t_pn=S%2fB98210 and
    Warn M8000-http://www.4wheelparts.com/Winches-...8&t_s=300&t_pt=100702&t_pl=6407&t_pn=WAR26502
    With the XRC 10 I would be set as far as the winch goes. With the warn I will need to get a different fairlead and I would want to switch out the line to Synthetic. I want to know what everyone thinks. Which one?

    the wire is fine on the Warn if you want to pay that much, i have the http://www.4wheelparts.com/XRC8-Winch.aspx?t_pl=6208&t_pn=S/B97281 XRC8 with cable, works great for me the couple of times that i have used it. i would say save your money and just use the cable till either it breaks, or it gets kinked up to the point of suckage

    I like the XRC 10 because it comes with the synthetic, which is nice. I know its probably not the best, but still is synthetic. Plus seems like its safer.

    I found an XD9000 for $665 I think. It has the rollers and wire cable. How are the refurbished winches though? Kinda worries me.
