Winches for Trucks and 4 Wheelers

At Truck Accessory Site we understand purchasing a winch can be a daunting task especially if you are on a budget. The cost of a winch alone can vary from 300 dollars on up to well over a thousand dollars. Then you have to factor in the costs of accessories and mounting options that go along with a winch. At Truck Accessory Site we understand that is allot of money and we strive to offer the best deals and fastest shipping option possible. Buying in such large bulk allows our company to offer a large inverntory and low price daily!

How much Winch do you need?

Recommended winch capacity over vehicle weight. Typically manufacturers and resellers will suggest you should calculate the winch rating by taking the gross vehicle weight and multiplying it by 1.5 and that would be your minimum winch size. But this minimum rating is just that, a minimum. Certain factors can quickly cause your winch capacity to be exceeded so you need to think about your intended usage. Be aware that certain terrains and situations can put a much greater demand on a winch over the typical 1.5 multiplication rule of thumb. For instance a common cause for winching is mud. Mud however has an incredible suction force on a stuck vehicle and in many cases that 1.5 rule of thumb is far inadequate. Steep hills and frequent winching also put great demand on an electric winch. Understanding the purpose and safe use of winch accessories such as a snatch block can be invaluable when you need it most.

Warn Winches Mile Marker Winches
Founded in 1948 by Arthur Warn, Warn Industries began producing locking hubs for surplus World War II Jeeps, converting thousands into useful, on-road vehicles. Originally based in Seattle, Washington, Warn Industries' innovation revolutionized the hub industry. The WARN? winch, developed in 1959, was the first recreational winch. With pioneering features such as a rugged drive train, the WARN winch quickly became the leading brand for off-road racers, avid four wheelers, weekend adventurers and hard working ranchers.

Warn Industries added to its product family throughout the 1970s with manual and automatic hubs for all 4WD vehicles, new electric and hydraulic winches, severe duty winches and new winch mounting systems. By the end of the decade, the company began its long-standing relationship with Ford Motor Company, established worldwide product distribution capabilities and opened manufacturing operations near Portland, Oregon. The WARN severe duty winches have since become the "winch of choice" for manufacturers such as AM General, manufacturer of the Hummer.

Warn Industries introduced more new products to the winch market in the 1980s, including the industry's first 3-stage planetary gear train and free-spooling clutch, a new utility model, and the industry's first all terrain vehicle (ATV) winch. Continuing to diversify its product line the company also added fender flares and off-road accessory products.

Also in the late 80's the ATV market was emerging, and WARN introduced the industry's first ATV winch and was issued a patent in 1988. By 1986, the company had moved its headquarters to Portland, Oregon and Michael Warn, Arthur Warn's grandson, became Warn Industries' new Chairman of the Board and CEO.

1991 to 1999 were pivotal years for Warn Industries. The company moved to just-in-time manufacturing, implemented Total Quality Control practices and received ISO 9001/QS-9000 certification. To complement its military involvement, the company also created an industrial division, building winches and accessories for the towing and recovery market. In the mid-90's, WARN's ATV division grew as fast as the Powersports industry, and WARN established relationships with OEM's such as Polaris, Yamaha, and Bombardier. In 1997, Warn Industries opened its state-of-the-art world headquarters, a 200,000 sq. ft. manufacturing and distribution facility. This helped Warn to become the dominant winch manufacturer in the ATV market segment and the number one supplier of wheel-end disconnects technology to OEM customers.

Mike Warn decided to step away from the business in 2000, selling 100% of the company in a management buyout led by Jon Kreitz, Endeavour Capital (Portland, Oregon) and Norwest Equity Partners (Minneapolis, Minnesota). This transaction brought a new infusion of capital into Warn Industries, allowing the company to pursue commercialization of its proprietary wheel-end technology with automotive OEMs, continued rapid expansion of its strong ATV business and support for marketing its leading core products.

In 2002, Warn Industries introduced WARN Works?, a new product line designed for the professional workers and do-it-yourselfers who need a powerful tool to assist them. The WARN Works? line is developing new distribution channels for WARN, and expanding its product offering to include utility winches, hoists and accessories.

Over the past three years, WARN's Senior Management Team implemented numerous process improvements that have resulted in improved productivity, cost reductions and improved safety for workers. WARN also successfully implemented a full suite of JD Edwards software, which replaced all the legacy information systems. WARN has also extended its manufacturing certificates to include the ISO 14001 environmental management system certificate for both Oregon facilities and WARN's Human Resources team implemented a performance based compensation system that includes formal performance reviews and career development discussions for team members.

WARN recently implemented a Red LetterTM dealer program, comprising of over 200 elite members of WARN authorized retail outlets that help provide consumers with the highest level of WARN brand product information, availability and service.

In October 2003, Warn Industries joined Dover Corporation, and is part of the Dover Resources Division.

Mile Marker designs and creates the most unique products for your off-road vehicle, including our legendary Hydraulic Winch system for the U.S. Military. For over a decade, Mile Marker has been manufacturing and supplying parts for Chrysler, Rockwell International & Dana Corporation. The quality of our products is assured.

The revolutionary Mile Marker winches set the standard for the new millennium utilizing the vehicle's original power steering pump as a hydraulic source.

Every day more than 200 million power steering pumps operate flawlessly. Used in all types of vehicles, under every condition, from 50 below to 135 degrees above, the pump must perform for years without service or adjustment. It has to withstand every type of abuse without failure. Having a built-in governor (the pressure relief valve), it is impossible to overload or overwork the pump. The only maintenance required is checking fluid in the system and refilling if needed. Steering is arguably the most important function while driving, so the power steering pump has evolved into the most reliable system on vehicles today. It never fails unless the fluid leaks out for some reason, such as a torn hose. Mile Marker chose to design a winch to use this continuous reliable power supply over the battery power used by competitors. After rigorous testing, we learned it was the right choice. We found the pump would operate continuously while pulling heavy loads with our winch and actually ran cooler when winching then it did while driving off-road. Our tests have been confirmed by many others independently, including magazines worldwide, 2+ years of testing by the U.S. Military, and testing by the University of Technology in Australia.
