I am debating between a Cabela's Trail Tamer 2300 (made by Superwinch) or a Warn 2.5. The Warn is about $70 more and it appears the features are the same. Which one do you recommend? Are there any others that you would choose from?

WARN--------

I am not a superwinch fan.... Most I have seen are made cheap and don't last.... JMHO...

Simple,

I have a 2000# Superwinch and it just does not have the ass to move the rinny in a good stuck situation. Spend the extra bucks and get a Warn.......You'll save more in the long run because you won't have to buy another winch like I need to do now. Don't get me wrong, it works, but it's not a WARN.

I added a snatch block to mine just in case.

Is the Warn 2.5 big enough to get me out of a jam or do I need to step it up to the 3.0?

A claim like that and no picture....LOL

Just having fun with ya, you seem to be on a picture posting spree... well you have been posting two pictures alot...

the warn 2500 is enough for one machine in serious mud... but the 3000 may give you the extra you may need someday...... how much extra is it????

While you are thinking.... ramsey has the wireless.... nice unit... My father has one.... very nice...

trouble is bringing the camera into where we ride... Im going to buy a low end digital to take with me into the bush...

photo posting spree... yeah... trying to increase the moral in here from, just a forum, to somthing more along the lines of, " a bunch of guys *we* know " of course most of us may never meet one another, but it helps to some degree of camaraderie...

Think of the winch purchase this way. You know the old saying of "you get what you pay for".. Well that saying comes very true in your winch purchase decision.

I have the 2.5ci and love it. Has worked very well every time I've asked it to.

I agree with guitars.... Winches are out in the elements and can corrode up easy if not made with high quality parts..... Thats why warn has the reputation they do.......

And if your hungry, I would suggest calling mudchucker......

Beef, its whats for dinner....LOL.....

So whats in the glass in that pic.... guiness????? No foam????

Thanks for the advice guys. I think I will get a Warn. I am leaning towards the 2.5 since everyone says that will do me more than good enough. Cabela's has the 2.5 for $340 and the 3.0 for $450. Does anyone know where I can find one cheaper than Cabelas?

I've had the Warn 2.5 for a year. It has plenty of power, I pull out Yamahas and Polaris' all the time. I have the Warn multi-mount, but took it off the front because it stuck out too far and didn't work well with my plow. I have the remote activation switch (on a 10ft tether) which is nice sometimes, but a pain for plowing and general use, so I am connecting a standard handle bar switch in parallel. The only problem I've had is the contactor quit working at a very inopportune time. After I got home, I disconnected the winch from the contactor, and actuated the contactor about 50 times with no load. Then when I re-connected the winch it worked fine. I think the contacts were just carboned up and working it under no load beat them back into submission.

I had to chime in here and give my props to the Warn also. Everyone I know who doesn't have a Warn regrets it. I also have the 2.5 and it has been good enough to pull myself or anybody else out of whatever we've been in.
On another note, I wanted to include a picture of the shelter our ATV club is in the process of building. The picture shows a table we made out of two large rocks, a fire pit, and the slab for the soon-to-be-built shelter. I like the idea of this place being just a bunch of guys talkin' trash and sharing info all the comraderie BS like mudchucker said. How many guys belong to a club or association??

Anyone heard of a different type of cable made for winches? Something different than the standard cable. Mine has a flat spot and sometimes gets jammed.

Sounds like the 2.5 Warn is the way to go. Now I just have to save my money over the winter and get it before the fun mud season starts. :)

red9,
they have a synthetic rope that works nice..... I have seen it more on larger winches.... But I am sure they make it for smaller ones also..
