    Welcome WARN. I just noticed the change when I logged on moments ago.

    If anyone from WARN is checking this, can you give some details on the new winches that have just been released (I think the VR line)? What changes are there, compared to the M series, that allows the lower prices?

    We're glad to be able to further sponsor this great forum!

    As to the VR lineup: These are different than the M-series. They have different motors, different remotes, different finishes, and use solenoids instead of contactors. (The new Ultimate Performance, Heavyweight, and most of the Premiuim line use contactor control now). These changes allow for a lower price point.

    I do want to note that these winches are designed, engineered, tested, and assembled here in Clackamas, Oregon, too.

    Again, we're glad to be able to sponsor the Full Size forum! We do make a full lineup of hubs, bumpers/mounting systems, and winches for full-size vehicles, too, so be sure to check out www.WARN.com for your full-size truck needs.

    Thanks for the support, Warn. I'm interested in the M series and VR series differences -- I was planning an M8000 for my Tacoma, but this new line is possibly an option.

    Could you explain a bit about the value of contactor control v solenoids?

    And thanks for the strong commitment to US manufacturing -- it's important to this buyer, because it's often a strong indication of quality. Of all the operations you noted in your earlier post that are US-based on the VR series, you didn't note "manufacturing". Is this series assembled from US or imported parts? If imported, can you tell us where from?
