So...

I'm looking at both of these as I've found good deals on them. Would you go for the M12000 in the front of the 80 (arb) or fab and go for the tried and true 8274?

For the weight of an 80, M12000

Neither...

You should pass the good deal on the M12000 on to me and buy my XD9000 and put it in whatever you like best :hill:

Seriously, I think the lower profile of the M12000 fits the 80 better and as tried and true as the M8274 isn't the 80 just too big for it? I know people have done it but to me it seems like the M8274 is undersized and the profile blocks too much airflow for an 80...

Agreed! I have used every inch of my line on snow runs and would not have had enough if I had to double line pull! I have also snapped a 10k winch extension line so go big or don't go at all! That is also the reason I won't do the Short Bus bumper! I love the design but a 9.5k winch won't suit my needs. :thumb::thumb:

I think I"m going to opt for the 12K. It just fits and is strong as hell. Plus a little cheaper than the 8274. Hopefully this used one is in good shape.

Got the Warn M12000. Needs a little cleanup, but all works and is good for me for sure. The price was definitely right.

Gotta question tho. The freespool knob doesn't seem right to me. I can spin 360 degree's, and when I put it at the "free" position I can pull the cable free (not that it's on there very smoothly) The winch spools in and out fine.

Is something fooked in there? or do I need to bump the winch to get things to line up and free spool?
