    Warn 9000i on a 6000 lbs Burb. Used the snatch block whenever possible, never failed me, never seem strained even on a straight line.

    I love my Warn 12k

    It is plenty for dragging a dead truck up a steep hill,or bumper deep mud.

    before the axle swap and winch(see sig)/bumber it weighed in about 5700. it's close to 6,000 now. I haven't needed to use too many times so far but the times that I have needed it, it has worked great.

    My fav is an 8274 even though I plan on running the mile marker hydro when I get enough money. Gonna run it through a 12v hydro pump though so no extra strain on a steering system :D

    I use a Warn XD 9000. I rebuilt it the other day and that was a good thing, because that night I used it between 15 and 20 times:eek1: (in a 5 hour timespan):eek1:. The people I was wheelin with were very glad that I had it. Even pulled a tree down with it. There was a guy there who had a Mile Marker, it did what he needed it to do, but the thing spooled in with no load slower than mine did with a jeep on the other end. My no load speed is like 30 FPM. I am glad I spent the money I did.
    My son just got his 9000Ti warn the other day. It has a no load speed like 50 FPM, boderline dangerous, with cable.

    8274

    I finally scored the coveted warn 8274 the other day. I had to buy another cj7 to get it, but hey that’s ok right, it’s an 8274. The guy told me that it didn’t even work, after 20 seconds of spreading the contacts so they would connect better it worked like a champ. Yep, thats right I live a double life 3 cj’s and one K5 the funny thing is their all 79s. Any way this one will be sold minus the hardtop, winch, and nice bumpers.
