Warn Power plant HP Winch

Alright,
So does anybody have any knowledge on this winch. The things i like a are first off its made warn, secondly it has 9.5 pulling capacity, thirdly it say you can air up four 35's in under 8 minutes. (it says with built in air tank and intercooler?? What's that mean??) Anyody have anything to say about this winch. If you've ran it did you like it? How long did it last? (or how long have you had it)
Just the basic questions.

Thanks,
Tom

I love Warn, they make great winches. That said, I wouldn't run their Power Plant on a Wrangler TJ. The Power Plant is positively HUGE, too big and heavy for a TJ in my personal opinion. Not only that but you have two crucial pieces of equipment that would both be lost if there was any kind of a problem. I will always keep my winch and air compressor totally separate from each other.

Take a look at Warn's 9.5XP if you're already up in that dollar range. By far, it's the best of Warn's current TJ-size winch offerings and is also the fastest they have going under load. After my '97 TJ was stolen with its Warn HS-9500i winch was stolen, I went with the 9.5XP for my replacement Jeep and it's a really nice winch. Plus its specs are pretty darned good.

I had a york powered on board air compressor in my last jeep that was stolen. I now use a C02 to fill up my tires but I liked my York compressor better.

Not saying your wrong but the powerplant hp is only 13 pounds more than the 9.5 XP so what's the difference?????

Slightly under 5 minutes to refill four 35x12.50 tires from 7-8 psi to 26, a York F210 compressor is very fast.

That just turns a heavy winch into an excessively heavy and massively oversized winch that is more at home on a bigger truck.
