I'm planning on buying a new winch, just cant decide which one. Does anyone run with the tabor 9000lb or the mile marker? These have pretty nice price tags. Any info. on these would be very appreciated. Thanks
I have heard okay things about the milemarker. And the military use the hydraulic ones on their vechicles. So they cant be all that bad. I have seen the Warn 9000lb winch for 400-550 dollars also though, maybe just saving up a little more money for a name brand might not be a bad idea? That way if there is a problem you know who to go back to.
1989 4.2l 5 speed, 36" TSL tires, 4 1/2" spring lift 3" BL herculiner 4.56 with detroit trutrac locker running and beating my D30 and D35 until they snap. superwinch epi 9000 or-fab tire carrier and all the other stuff a jeep owner needs.
i had a mile marker 8000, it is slow and then the solinoids would stick and the winch wouldnt run. i bought a superwinch epi 9000 pound winch and couldnt be happier with it. it cost me 600 dollars and included a roller fairlead and a snatch block. it also move at 46 feet per minute under no load compared to miler markers 14
I had a Mile Marker 8000. It never let me down, however the solenoid did sometimes tcik (but it was stress relieving to hit the winch to free it). I used it many times and hard-a great product for low cost.
Since then, bought a Warn 8000 for my new TJ and the Warn is MUCH faster- almost too fast with a light load to maintain control. I chose the warn because of the solenoid problems and the cost wasnt too much more.
Hey guys! The Tabor is an older generation style prob 5 years back with Bosch motor and all US produced by Warn. Best bang for the buck currently. We have Warn M8000 on promo for shade over $500 and it has a roller fairlead.
