Beautiful work. Sucks cutting into a fresh bumper but the results are worth it!!
Thanks, I had a little help with this one as i’m still learning body and paintwork. The pics make the bumper look better than it was. I wanted to fill the extra holes as well, worst case scenario was more welding.

I built my own 8274 mount for my 45 build. I wanted a factory look with a recessed fairlead. I don’t have leaf springs so I had more options for mounting.

I had a custom piece of 1/4 inch steel plate bent to fit in the front frame rails. I then cut and angled the bottom of the channel to allow the 8274 to sit as low as possible. I had the winch mounting plate cut from 3/8 steel then welded it to the front support.

I used an OEM bumper to cut and bend a recess in. There are more Details in my build thread.

Any 8274 owners have a thread about rebuilding theirs? Curious to learn more before I pull the trigger if I can find one.

This is a really good write up on motor trend’s online site. I’m using it to go through mine right now

There are several in the winching sub-forum here on Mud; this one by @flintknapper is by far the best, and the one I used as a guide:

My WARN 8274 rebuild part 1..... - https://forum.ih8mud.com/threads/my-warn-8274-rebuild-part-1.197470/

The winching forum has lots of good info as @1911 posted. Additional sources here:





8274 is a straightforward rebuild.

Wow, thanks guys! Awesome info. I have a line on one, should know more today. Would certainly be a project for down the line a bit as I get my 6/77 back on the road.

Looking for an old solenoid cover for an 8274 I’m rebuilding. Realize new is available, but would like one without the “w” in red.

I'd post this request in the for sale/wanted section. There might be someone who has one laying around that updated theirs to new.

Last time I was wheeling in the San Juan Mountains, i was having lunch in Lake City, after having run the Engineer Pass trail. Some guy at the restaurant got all excited because of the red "W" on my solenoid (contactor) cover; he thought I was a University of Wisconsin fan.
