Don't know about fit, but somehow I doubt it because of the integrated soleniod; however, the factory winch on an 80 series is a 9000 # Superwinch. I'm sure this is fine for simple self recovery. As has been mentioned, I don't think it's what you want for serious wheeling, but it'll do, and it's better than nothing.
(I have a Ramsey 8K on mine, and with a snatch block, am not worried about being able to get the 80 unstuck if necessary.)
That being said, I'd like to go with a 12K up front and move the 8K to the rear at some point...
As long as the hole pattern is the same as a M12000, it should fit I'd suspect. That bumper is quite roomy! That winch does haul ass though, even after you release the switch, the inertia keeps it moving.

I cannot get my HS 9500 to line up with the holes on my ARB because the motor is too long. Is it common to shim between the bumper and the winch?[/quote]
It's not common, because most 80 owners have the Warn 12k.
If you have to shim with some flat stock, it's not big deal.
I actually have the x8000i (integrated sol. style) mounted in my bullbar. It is mounted lying down on it's back. I only used this setup because the vehicle came with it. If I were to buy a new one, I would definately go with 12k. The one I have works great to pull my buddies jeeps, but it strains quite a bit with my 6,300lb cruiser. I will get a 12k soon.

The Supa winch is betta. 1/2 - 1/3 street price of a Warn 12k, 11,900 stall. Reliable. If you want to blow the extra cash, go for it. [/quote]

Have you ever used your X9? Have you ever taken off the selenoid cover or the motor out? It is a piece of roo crap dude. I know because I have one in the rear of my truck, which is proper because it's quality looks like it fell out of the rear. It's more than 50% of the Warn 12k or you're not shopping in the right places. My last Warn 12k was picked up for $925 with no shipping
You'll find out how much it blows the first time you really need it. Oh, and btw, if you haven't used it in a while, then you'd better check it still works 'cause they use the cheapest selenoids known to man.
I had to shim one inch to get the HS 9500 in the bumper. It will do the job for what I need out of the winch. I had two shims made at a machine shop which work well. Now I have to find a good place to mount the solenoid. I was thinking about the grill. Does anyone else have any suggetions?
