Warn winch ID

Hey guys,

Just bought a Warn winch for $50 bucks, it was all taken apart. The previous owner meant to refurbish it but never got around to it. All the new parts were in a box along with the old winch parts. I put it back together and it works great!

Now, the guy said it was s Warn 6000 but all the pictures I've found of them they're a lot skinnier at the motor..

There's no labels since it was repainted.

Anybody know what it could be?

Pablo, I talked to him as well and he inferred that it was a replacement motor.

Soo would that make it stronger?

It being a replacement motor, would it give it more pulling power or is that all determined by the gearing inside of the winch?

How would anybody know if the motor would be stronger or weaker? The gears are supposedly 6k and I wouldn't test it with more unless you consider it to be a throw away winch.

A quick google image search for Warn 6k winches shows nothing like you have pictured.

That's why I was wondering what it is, I can't find anything like it. The warn 6k has a 80' cable. The one that came with the winch is 100'. So I'm not sure what it is..


The motor is a Warn motor and it looks a lot beefier than the original M6000 motor. I'll most likely give it to my uncle for his Jeep Comanche.

It was completely taken apart and had original paint, he just never got the time to clean the parts and put it back together, and then I gave it a nice new paint job.

I think it is a worn winch, not a Warn winch.

I followed the Warn diagram to put it back together.. all the part bags said Warn.. And had part numbers..
It came with the plastic cap lever and then the metal clutch lever that is regularly used. I just figured the cap was a cleaner look

Reverse check the part numbers on the bags to see which winch they fit.

The Chinese would never do anything like make a knockoff winch and label it as a genuine product.
