Warn VR8000 Entry Level Series winches are affordable and loaded with many great features. They have an 8,000 lb. pull rating with 94 feet of 5/16" steel cable (100 feet of 3/8" synthetic Spydura rope in the VR8000-s model) and a fast line speed that makes them a great choice for any light truck, Jeep, or SUV. Their low profile design allows them to be mounted in the tightest of spaces and the separate electronics control packs allows for multiple mounting options. While the VR line of winches may be classified as Warn's entry level series, they are still designed to be strong, tough, and reliable.
