Poll fail.
I have a Warn XD9000 and its pretty good, a little slow but they all are to someone as impatient as me.

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

I personally like the controller on the Warns better than the Mile Markers- but both are great companies. For simplicity, I would go with the M8000.

Currently running with an older Warn 8000xi. No complaints......other than the fact that I made a pull one time and the strength of the Warn, wound up twisting the frame rails on my LJ, and the winch wound up contacting the grill.

DAMB!

Reason I put mile marker - is because of the solid state.

Winch comparison usually include the Superwinch EPi9.0. It gets good reviews and in one of the magazine winch shoot outs it was given 2nd place to Warns 1st place....the catch is that is was much cheaper than the warn it was compared to.

Just an idea. It's worth researching.

Warn M8000. Get it and forget it...until you need it..then you know it will work. It's a WARN, nobody I know has ever had a problem.
There are WARN winches still around from the 80's people are using.

can never have "too much winch" IMO. i see the site says that too... but i've been quoted a few times from Vendors. hit up a local JKO vendor here they might have them in stock. HITMONEY runs a V-10... he should be able to give it a review for you. I plan on running the V-12... will be my spring present to Rubi when I take it out of storage.
