I am thinking about getting a winch for my YJ. I was looking at 1 Harbor Freight 8000lb winch. For about $200.00 more I can get a Warn M8000.

I have a Smittybult double tube front bumper on the YJ now but want to change to a better bumper later on.  Will a flat winch plate work with my bumper or will I need a raised plate?


Does anyone have a winch for sale?

I was thinking about the HF 10,000 lb winch and getting the longest warranty that I can get from them. They used to offer a lifetime wattanty but not any more.
