Got a 10k on mine. Like having the extra capacity. Although I very very rarely use it. Was one of my first upgrades. I don't regret it, it just doesn't get used as much as I thought it would.
make sure you do bumper and "frame" tie ins. yanked mine off at Bridgeport
What type of bumper connections did you have when it failed and yanked the bumper off? Most bumpers sold commercially have the 3 bolts per side configuration.

Re: advice 8000 vs 10000lb winch

all opinions and wisdom needed here please: im narrowing a few options

1. smittybilt x20 10000 218:1/12000lbs 6.6hp, 265:1 line speed 549$=649$
lifetime mechanical, 5 yr electrical warranty
2. warn VR8-s 216:1 $669.00/VR10-S 261:1 $769.00 both HP n/a i guess limited lifetime warranty what ever that equals
3. superwinch tiger shark 9500 218:1 5.2HP 593$/ 11500 218:1 5.0- 6HP (mixed reviews) 742$

im open to suggestions, i would love to spend 1000+ on usa made but i want gears/ lockers and need to be practical on price/function.

After researching, I'm going with the Warn Zeon 10k w/synthetic rope.

Re: advice 8000 vs 10000lb winch

X2o 12k here. Had a warn 9k. Warn stalled out in the hammers when a buddy's 12 had just enough to get me moving. The extra 2k will help when you need it and worth the extra 100 in the long run. I say the biggest that will fit. But I don't care about speed, just as long as it gets me out.

It's a contactor in there and a wireless box. Pretty good setup. I moved the wireless switch in cab. Throw some dielectric grease or battery corrosion proof over all the wire terminals, run it once a month and you'll be happy. Lack of use kills winches.

this ive never heard of. What causes this issue??

also ive just come across rugged ridges spartacus winch. i believe they also are the same as smittybilt. Im happy to hear the smittybilt x20 has contactors so i wonder if any other brand does other than superwinch ( for the money).
