"We bought this for our 2007 Jeep Wrangler 2Dr. Installed easily on a Smittybuilt bumper and wired with included cable to battery. Hand control plugs in the box and has enough cord to use in vehicle or standing out of the way. Unit had enough torque to pull our JK out of a bad situation. Used it one time and glad we had it. Would recommend the 9500 for the heavier JK 4-door. Can't go wrong with WARN, a brand you can trust."

I would WARN you not to buy another brand!

"What can be said about Warn winches that hasn't already been said in every major publication on offroading, every offroad event and by builders/hobbyists like myself? Warn is, without a doubt, the best made winch money can buy. Sure, it's about 20% more expensive than the house brands. In this case, it uses the "old technology" of a steel cable instead of one of the new synthetic winch line. That can be changed if it really bothers you. When I'm stuck in mud up to my rocker panels, I trust my M8000 to pull me out. When I'm half way up a trail and it's all washed out and I need to make it to the top, I know that my Warn won't let me down. I've had a Warn winch of one type or another on every truck I've had over the last 15 years. The M8000 I have currently has been serving my YJ for going on 2 years. It's pulled me out probably 15 times. It's pulled my buddy's really heavy trucks (Broncos, F350s, big scouts) out more times than I can remember. Pair it with a snatch block and a good trees strap for a reliable, safe and consistent pull.
The only way I'll sell my M8000 now is if I can get a good deal on a 12000 pound Warn. Other winches may get you unstuck, but this Made in America wonder will make you bold. You won't even consider not crossing something that might be risky if you know you can trust on your winch to undo whatever bad decision you just made."
