But to the original question... I have a friend who is an engineer for Warn. He told me an interesting story about why Warn raised the price of the 8274 so much a while back. They wanted to phase the winch out as it shares nothing with their other lines and the production line was in need of upgrade. They raised the prices thinking that it would shift the customers to their other products. Folks just paid more. So they raised the price again. Same result. One more time with no reduction in sales numbers and they wised up. Dropped half a mil into the production line upgrades and set back to make them as long as people would buy them.
