    I found some Warn Dealers in my area /
    and i can get the "standards" for $70.00
    and the "premiums" for $100.00

    i like the standard look better...

    i wouldnt consider my vehicle in the extreme 4x4 class
    sure fun in the mud now and then...

    but again my question..
    should i go all out and go "premium"?
    or save the 30 bucks and put it towards a 30pack
    for this weekend project by slapping on the "standards"

    i think i just answered my question...

    I like the idea of a 30pack [​IMG]
    I have never run the standard flavor, just premium.
    I just hate buying things twice so if Warn has made a tuffer flavor of the same product I would gofor the tuffer of the two.
    Even in mild wheelin if it breaks mabie that 30pack wasen't worth it[​IMG]??
    Check the warrenty if there the same?? well any how good luck and don't forget the ice[​IMG]!

    Pick up any recent 4 wheel mag. and there will be a 1/3 off discount for Carparts.com inside. That makes the Warn Premiums about $54 if I remember correctly. For almost half off what your local price is I would deal with the trouble of trying to order them, even if you have to call it in if the web site doesn't work like it should...

    Good Luck,

    or do like I'm doing I got one of each, premium on drivers side and standard on passenger side, I'll let the board know which one wears out first. Both are over 10,000 miles now....WK

    $100 for the premiums and $70 for the regulars is awfully high. I was at the local Advance Auto Parts store last night and they had them in stock....Warn Premiums were $79.99 and the regulars were $59.99. Shop around some more, buy the premiums, a 30 pack, and a back of chips...........
