Okay no bashing just a simple question how many of you had to get a warn winch covered under warranty and when you did they give you hard time? I cracked the housing on mine it is the 4,000 pounder on a Polaris ranger. It stopped working on me out in Eureka when I really needed it now I know why. Quick story stuck in a mud hole hooked up to some bushes, wife was winching and giving the ranger gas so it was not like it was pulling dead weight. Anyhow I'm yelling at my wife winch in winch in and she is yelling at me I am and I find out the winch is not doing nothing... I see Six States is the authorized warranty center.
