hondorome....a new member

just bought an '09 wrangler rubicon and am scoping out winches.

I think it will be used for occasional recoveries, not heavy use.

also wondering about the benefit versus cost of getting the winch with the compressor option ???

feedback is appreciated.....thanks !

Winch with the compressor. If all you want to do is air up tires the compressor works well. It is DAMN heavy though. We have a powerplant on both mine and my GFs jeep. Hers has never had an issue, mine has stopped working and needed repair 4 times.

welcome to the forum. i wouldn't recommend getting the compressor winch combo, it is bulky and super heavy. do you plan to wheel a lot and air down all of the time?
