Would you trade a 8274 for a M8000?

I got a buddy who just got a 8274. It is going to cost him a lot to get a mount/bumper made.(I guess at least $200) I have a M8000. I could get a mount made for the 8274 - basically free. My winch has less than 10 pulls on it - looks new. I haven't seen his, but it is supposed to be in good shape - I know it works, cable looks good, it may be an older model. I thought about offering to trade him straight accross. It would save him money, and I think I would get a better winch, with a longer cable.

We both bought them used. I paid $300, he paid $350

Would you do it? Is it fair?

Yes... the 8274 is almost bullet proof.

Go for it. I don't think you'll beat the 8274 for speed and strength.

DO IT
the 8274 spanks a m8000.
TWICE as much cable, faster, better, only downside is the size of an 8274.

Yup, Do it. And never look back.
As far as the 8274 being worth $500....thats about right for a used one. You can buy the m8000 for $500 new. Not the $1000-1200 they want for a new 8274. That should tell you something.

If you can get a mount made for yourself real cheap, maybe you could get one made for too cheap too. It would be a favor to him even if he paid you back. Of course that would depend on how good a bauddy he is. If he is a real good buddy you could offer to have to the mount made before asking to trade winches. If he is a casual buddy you could ask to trade first and then if he turns you down offer to have the mount made. Just a thought.

Do it Do it
When making the mount put a lip over the top and use 6mm Steel if you don't do the lip 10mm as the 8274 only pulls on one side the right side is just a support bearing, and it will twist the mount under load.
Here's one I made for a Challenge TJ.

It is also important to get the mount holes Exact as there are no alignment bars in the winch, if things mis aline you will wear out the support bearing and it make free spooling Tuff.
