    Any one know anything about these, or have experiance with them?

    They are on the WARN web site and they come in the 12k lb. capacity I am looking for.

    It says on the site they used to be called the "Magnum 12k" if that helps.

    They seem to work OK. Ive read some reviews, and they're positive for the most part. Its WARN's entry level winch.

    Are they actually made by WARN? Or are they made in China and resold by WARN?

    They are made in China. I've only seen the 9k Tabor winch in action and It's slow and noisy but it works ok. Looks to be good build quality too.

    those only have a 12 month warranty. Warn regular winches have a limited lifetime warranty.
