From the Smittybilt web site they build two winches. The XRC-8 and the XRC-10. These are 8,000 and 10,000 lb. winches and no mention of onboard air like the Warn Powerplant winch.

Sure seems like it covers a lot of the radiator. I own a Smittybuilt 8K and it works fine for light duty. It's kind of slow, but you can't beat $299.

I run a SB XR8 and it has held up just fine. I got the 2nd generation version of the winch and the line speed is very fast. Well worth the $300 bucks.
