Re: Warn M15000? Any Opinons?
Guys, keep in mind that the recent WARN 15K and 12K do not mount the same way the standard winches do. 4 bolts on a 10" x 4.5" bolt pattern, which is standard for winches for the most part, is how most WARN, RASMEY, and SUPERWINCH winches will mount on your jeep. They all will fit the same mount kit, for the most part. There are some exceptions.
The larger WARN 12 and 15 K use a combination mount with 6 bolts, and will not fit most mount kits for the front of a SWB Jeep. I don't even know if you can get a mount kit for these size winches for a SWB. The 12 and 15 are considerably larger than a standard XD9000, for instance. Thicker wire rope, larger diameter drum flanges, etc.
Just something more to look into if you're shopping for these larger winches.
