    OK I am looking at getting a winch (not the wife!!) and I am looking at a Warn 8000. I heard that 8000 might not be enough. But in my calculations 8000 should be plenty. Any input from winch owners??

    A 12,000 lb Warn winch might not be enough if your stuck in the mud, trust me I know from experience.

    I have a 8000lb warn on my 78K5. It's a older model, but I still have guys around here wanting to buy it from me all the time...I think that says alot about Warn's product.
