Anyone running em'?  If so how well do they perform and from a longevity standpoint how are they?

Well it depends on what size you're planning to get as I've seen the 9000 are a lot different than the 10,000.

Hi Renee 9000 currently and on a previously Vic vehicle I had one as well.  I use the winch at probably at least once every trip out and I'm having no issues and never have they are not quite as fast as a warn though

I've had 2 8ks and a 10k. I had some issues with my 2nd 8k, but Smitty send me a new motor and solenoid even though I was past my warranty. They aren't fast but they work.
