I just got a Superwinch LP8500 but have not used it yet. The Superwinch looks to be very well built but it needs a good test, it is on the CJ7 right now. My MileMarker 9000 is a great winch. It is extremely well built and very durable. It has plenty of power to spare I will see how it does on the XK. I guess thats why the milemarker slogan is "abused worldwide"

Bright Silver 4.7L 2.25 RR/OME lift, Kumho KL71 265/70/17, Flashpaq, Lights, rack, intake, Super44, mopar skids, 4x belly guard, rear fog lights, MM9500 winch, GetLost4x4 winch mount

If anyone else has any "review' web page links with real world experience please post the link.
I will be buying a recovery winch (probably lower priced) by summer. I usually research until I am exhausted before i actually make the purchase.
I have read lots of review about different brands...but some web sites only post the good reviews....
and other that post the bad review, sometimes base their opinion off one bad thing before truly testing the winch in the field.
I have been looking strongly at the Gorillia 8000 waterproof/wireless one....i have seen both good and bad....be the only bad thing i read was that some guy got a one that wouldnt work, but he never elaborated on it....others have said they work good.

I suggest the Superwinch LP8500 mainly for the price. No matter what you choose I suggest getting a snatch block or pulley block with it because if you get really REALLY stuck you may want to have the extra pulling power.

Not my experience, but my friend told me there was one thing he didn't like about his Warn winch - no brake. When you let off the switch it will keep winding as the motor spins down.
