That is a good deal for a warn old or new, but the thing that I disliked about the warn 2.5 was that they where not sealed up like the 3.0's. I don't know it the design has been updated or not. The old one's also had the plastic end cap(freespool end) and the plastic teeth would strip out if it was every overloaded. Everyone is going to the aftermarket winches now because of the prices. They can buy 2 aftermarket to 1 warn with the price difference and they seem to hold up well.
