    I picked up a complete m8000 off CL for $150. Needs a new motor (PO welded crap on the studs). I think that will run me $125 to $150.

    Mine came with the synthetic rope, I like the idea, but don't trust what the PO might have done there. New wire 100ft cable, ~$100; New synthetic about $175 or so, IIRC. If I convert to wire, needs roller fairleads, another $75 or so.

    Controller and other parts look good, but unknown until I get it tested.

    I knew what I was getting into, and will come out ok when I'm done. I think there was a post floating around here for m8000 motors from a boat supply outfilt for about $115. Had it book marked once, but have lost it.

    I've not seen an 8274 around here for less than $500. Looking still, may run across a good deal someday.

    I search for wenches, winches, warren, warn, etc. when looking. I don't search for wenches by warren though... ymmv

    I bought a T-Max 9k winch when they were still made in Australia, $400. It has been through a number of winch fests pulling for a couple of hours at a time. To hot to touch. Never had a problem with it. I converted it to synthetic line when I had a couple kinks and frayed spots in the cable. It's on my TJ which is my aggressive wheeler. I have a 8274 hiding under the bench for my '66 rebuild

    I have quit buying the 8274s just because the resale value has plunged so low with all the import crap available but I can try to pick one up. I have paid as little as 50 bucks for one that was advertised as an "electric wench" A yuppy in Bellevue had it on a Toyota that he bought and it made the truck too long to fit into his garage. I had to take off the entire brushguard and mount for him.

    I like my Warn 8274 electric wench as well... :D

    Works great, you can still get most parts and its relatively easy to work on. Taking a rusty winch brake off the shaft can be a challenge. Also, they are fairly heavy so it's nice to have some robust springs up front.
