Question Junkyards in and around NJ with high chance of finding an 8274 winch

Pops has come to me with an out of the blue with renewed interest in getting an 8274 warn winch for his truck. Which of course he has bestowed upon me for getting a list of junkyards that will have the best chance of finding an 8274 that we will then set about on foot to hunt for.

So would anyone here have any ideas on which junkyards to go on the hunt for an 8274?

I've been to a few pick a parts yards and I've never seen a winch before... That doesn't mean that you won't find one.

Your best bet is fleabay or a national search on CL.

There is one on fleabay for $600 right now.

I was thinking of that yard that Jarek and the gang went to earlier this year as well. Ebay has some for sale but not in the "cheap bastard" range I want them to be. Did a search the other day and found a few for $200. Also found one that is a bellview.

Just FYI, finding one in the cheap bastard range and then getting up to snuff will likely put you right up into good money range. I know because I tried this

Yeah I figured with the cheap bastard approach would require a purchase of a rebuild kit. Which I would have done anyhow cause you dont know exact condition when you are purchasing off the net.

It's probably ok if you see it in person. I ended up needing to buy a gear for mine and it all added up. Good luck in your search - it's sounds like a great father/son project.

x2. At least I was able to space the cost out over several purchases. The simplicity of the design and ease of repair is pretty amazing.
