    Just added my favorite winch. An 8000# Warn 8274 it's a 1980 vintage. I put a service kit in and new wire rope and a paint job. I like the way I mounted it with the roller fairlead in the middle of the bumper. Sits a little lower. I got the idea from this website. Thanks

    The 8274 looks so natural on a Jeep.
    Nice job on the installation.

    The nice thing about these winches is the parts interchange with the new ones.

    Looks awesome on there. Love your jeep. Good job. Like the low mount too. That's the way to do it imo.

    The cables are the original cables that came with the winch when I purchased it.

    Like the way you mounted it as well. Hard to beat an 8274. Its become my favorite winch and I am one that likes the way it looks, the ease of servicing it and the abundant parts that are still around. I can rebuild one now with a service kit in under two hours, not counting paint time of course.
    Here is my 47 with the rebuilt 8274, even a little lower. Fairlead is behind flip up plate.

    Somewhat I hunted Little Mountain for Mule Deer a couple times in the past. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
