My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

80 ft of winch line isn’t enough in lots of places. To say this kills a winch rated for 2 tons less having almost double the winch line is laughable at best. I could double up the Warn and have a 16,000 pound winch you’d say is killed by your 12,000 pound winch.

No I wouldn't rebuild a badlands apex I'll pay 60 bucks for the protection plan and they'll give me a new one.

I'm most certainly could mount a 8274 on a Cherokee but it might look kinda goofy being as tall as the grill

The 8274 probly could out run a 12k apex.

Not entirely sure what you mean by how the 8274 mounts. The winch I'm pretty sure doesn't mount to a vertical surface well like a plastic grill.

It's just rumored as the warn killer I'd assume that it probably is because warn has been forced to compete with imported products warn now does a fair of importing themselves with the cheap line of winches
I'd love to have the new 10k 8274 but 2400 for a winch is hard to swallow especially since there's zero chance that it's of equal quality to the 8274 from yesterday
I did look the 8274 and it has a standard mounting pattern will bolt in places that traditional shaped winches bolt into to. It's height is It's handicap

We Americans are killing good businesses like warn. Myself included I feel bad for being that guy but I can't afford this any other way.

Yes pulling all the cable out and straight pulling is hard on a winch but no choice unless I pack 180ft of cable. The 8274 can hold 150 ft of 3/8 syn rope I think 125 of cable. This would make it more easily capable to double back and take a load off itself

When the cheap winches are melted down for recycle the 8274s will be witching on

Also I believe the apex holds 80 ft of cable while the m8 is 100..... I did some digging when I was deciding and one reason I went with an m8 was speed under load. With 6k lbs it should be faster than any of the Chinese winches even the warn evo's.... but my main reason was it fit where I wanted to put it so..... hahaha

Run whatever gets you on the trail! People make to big of a deal about name,color, and weather they kill kittens in the process! When you get the apex let's hear some comparisons between it and your current

Re: My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

We had it in July. It was like having a cold. I am completely done with caring about it.

Remember back in March of 2020 when they said just sit still for 2 weeks and we will have this licked? Yeah right. Going on 2 years now.

Remember when they said "The vaccine is the thing!"? Yeah right. First one needle. Then two. Now three. And Delta is kicking the vaccine's butt.

Hmm.

Conclusions could be drawn. But one would have to employ one's own mind. And of course then you would be in violation of the new religion.

Evan, just be glad you are not in Kali. At least here there is a vestige of reason.

Re: My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

I am tempted to provide some alternative perspective on COVID, but no point in potentially going way OT on a great build thread.

Evan03, fantastic scenery. I am surprised to see horses apparently roaming a very large area. Wild horses?

Those are simplot ranch horses theyre babies will eventually be used by cowboys. There are also wild horses in the area along with big horn sheep dear elk aciosanal lost moose. Idaho is still wild, the government can't even contain us.

Anak they will string this out as long as they possibly can then create something else to keep them in control of people.

This is the little Jack's, Big Jack's and wichahoney, duncan canyons wilderness area. Scott hasn't seen these canyons so were exploring haven't been to the good stuff yet.

Re: My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Sucks you live so far.. I'm so tempted to rip the bushwhacker shiz off and just look like a lot of xjs with cut fenders.... then I see your fenders and remember how bad I want to do it right and twist up some tube.

When's the cage start?? Internal exo or combo??!

Evan, if you ever have the urge to explore south of Owyhee - NE NV, Jarbidge, Wildhorse, etc. I'd be glad to do some wheelin' with ya. Some of our offroad club spent 5 days in Jarbidge a couple weeks ago; it was a hoot. Maybe you're already explored down here.
