I agree. I reluctantly bought the 9.5CTI before I finished my build. That money could have bought a front axle but instead I went with the warn. I definitely am glad I did because I have used it many times. It's saved my a$$ and I can't describe the feeling of security knowing I'll be able to get myself out on a wheeling run. Many times I wheel on the way to the store as the "short cut" and would have been in the dog house had I gotten stuck with no recovery options....
