Yes you do. Everyone should have an 8274. Once you have one, you cannot go back.

They are very fast. They have a large drum that holds a lot of rope. They stay cooler with the motor out in the open. The gear train is bulletproof.

They are upgradable, rebuildable, fast, hold a lot of cable/rope..... they are arguably the best winch out there in their size range if you take care of them.

Do you have to modify the grill to fit this winch? I thought I saw that on another post. Does it need a specific bumper?

Depending on the bumper you will likely have to modify the grill.

Yes you need a bumper to support this. It has mounting holes that face forward (not underneath), and it's pretty deep.

The 8274 requires a foot forward mounting. I guess the grill modification depends upon the bumper....


EDIT: Oops, you beat me to it. FWIW I don't have a bumper as Warn sells a standard foot forward mount (in the pics of an earlier post) but I doubt that mount would fit on a Defender.
