Like its professional counterpart, the 9.0R, the 9.0Rc is a short-drum, 9,000 lb. capacity winch that features a 4.8 hp Series Wound Motor for fast line speeds. An exclusive, multi-segment Cam Actuated Brake gives positive operator control during winching.

The 9.0Rc comes standard with 50' of 3/8" diameter synthetic rope. Other features include: a chromate undercoating and gloss red paint that provide superior corrosion resistance; a rugged, 360-degree swivel hook and thimble; an aluminum hawse fairlead; extreme duty winch sealing; and a "Ballistic Nylon" Sliding Sleeve that provides extra protection against abrasion and wear.

The 9.0Rc - a winch built for rock crawlers looking for efficiency, reliability and the legendary WARN performance.

Price: $1,200.00
Pros: light
Cons: length of line
Recommended? Yes

Comments: other than only having 50' of line this is a great winch. that can easily be taken care of with a stram or winch extension. I think the weight savings make it worth it. paint is starting to come off after 4 yrs or so but nothing much to worry about. its a warn. nuf said.

Pros: awesome power super fast dependable and its rebuild able for very little expense.
Cons: gotta do a dual battery setup if your gonna do any kinda major winching as well as a alternator upgrade and a little rewiring of important battery connections
Recommended? Yes

Comments: After i installed this on a plate i mounted it to a tractor and dead pulled 9k worth of cement block on a sled with no problem it almost stalled when it caught a corner but then it stared to drag the cat it was mounted on around . I just ordered a Smittybilt xrc bumper to go with it i will review the combo as well as mounting ease of both when i receive it .

Warn 9.0Rc Rock Crawling Winch
Price: $1,200.00
Recommended? Yes

Comments: No real rating yet but I got this winch because I wanted to stay lightweight and use synthetic rope. I carry an extra 50 foot cable and 20 foot strap in case the 50 feet winch cable is too short, but expect that this winch will be easier to use because I can pull out all the cable quickly and use the first few turns to get max power.

Warn 9.0Rc Rock Crawling Winch
Price: $999.00
Pros: fast line pull, strong, light weight, looks cool
Cons: only holds 50ft of line
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This product was initially sold as a professional rock crawling winch, only for those with sponsors in competing in large events. Once made available at a good price to the public by Biff @ I had to take advantage. With price being equal between the RC and Warn's thermometric winch, I had to look at the features and decide which was better. The biggest deciding factor for me was the weight difference. The RC was half the weight of the other, perhaps largely due to the synthetic line which comes with the RC. I had zero spring sag from this winch which weighs in at 45 lbs. The only negative is that it holds only 50ft of line. I plan to get an extension line to keep in the jeep, just in case.
