Comments: Outstanding winch, perfect for Jeep, shame that Warn stopped making them to make larger profit off the Xd9000s. I try to keep the steel cable clean and wound good. So far over 10 necessary vehicle pulls and no fails in 5 years. The free spool handle was removed to lubricate the rubber gasket which became stuck and didn't allow free spool. Works perfect after a little oil. Recommend not wetting winch when washing vehicle to keep little gaskets working.
