Anyone running a Ramsey Re8000?

Looking for some pix of the mount and what you like and don't like about it. I know they are slow but the worm drive is double dependable... I may of found one for a affordable price and may need to make a mount for it.

Jeff, I never had one, but a couple friends of mine did and had really good luck with them. Line speed was their only complaint. And in my experience, when you need a winch you aren't too concerned about line speed unless you're in a timed event. Hope it works out.

Thanks Tom that is about what I have been hearing. No one has reported them burning up or anything. I hear they get hot but it does not seem to effect them... Course electronics and heat don't mix... re8000

Re: Anyone running a Ramsey Re8000?

I've got one, it's been on my junk for about 4 years and I bought it used...IT IS SLOW...but will pull the ash off an elephant. I just ordered a generic mount plate from q-tec or 4wdhdwr, was like $90 back then...had a bunch of extra holes for other winches, nice lip and mount for roller fairlead.

It should work on a mount similar to mine. Here's a picture. A horizontal plate on the bottom, a vertical plate in back and on each side. Most of the force is transferred through the 2 X 2 X 1/4 angle in front.

Re: Anyone running a Ramsey Re8000?

That is how it mounts jim. I am likely gonna need to make a mount,, BUT 1/4" I know yours is solid, cause I have seen it work, but doesn't seem like 1/4 inch angle would stop it frome repositioning it's self on the ground in front of the jeep.

My goof - it's 3/8". [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Don't laugh - you'll be old and feeblminded some day. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/codger.gif[/img]

That mount is hell for stout. Broken more 5/16" cables than I can count - dozens I'm sure - and never a whimper. If you're hoping to make this before the Bash I'll send you a pic of the side.
