    Now that I got your attention, I need the height measurement on a HS9500i and a Ramsey 9500 winch so I can make sure one will fit in my bumper when it is done.
    Thanks Wayne.

    Thats pretty cool that they give all that info.Its a great help in figuring out how your gonna mount it or if it will fit with out buying it first.

    Some people shouldnt drive anything bigger than their head.<a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/user/beaterwhang>community.webshots.com/user/beaterwhang</a>

    Yeah-sure if your stuffing a box between your frames.

    Ramsey have all the gears on one-side, the moter on the other side. (at-least the 9500 does)
    Warn has one set of gears on the moter side. That offesets the drum to one-side. Not a big-deal if you can work around it with a winch bumper.
    But, If you in a squeeze, it might be something to consider.
    In my case, I had to notch the frame to cear the moter, if I went with a Warn- I would have to eliminate the frame.

    The over-all dimentions are pretty close. (never put a tape to 'em, just eye-balled 'em)-

    Edited}
    It looks like the Ramseys are shorter (R9500 -vs- W9500)- A good thing if your liiking for packaging, bad if your looking for performance. I have found that on my winch, the cable will bind on the cylinoid pack. (there is more clearance on the Warns). The new pictures of the Ramseys appear to have a taller cylinooid pack to keep the cable away from the drum.

    On mine, I'll cut 50ft off the cable to clear(100ft remaing). Looseing 50ft of cable around here shouldn't be a big deal.
