Here is a great winch shoot-out by Moab Jeeper magazine. I'm sure glad I read it as it confirmed some things in my head. When and if I do buy one it will be the Superwinch. Hard to argue with it since it performed just like the Warn and was the only one to really keep up but for $500 less.

Warn XD9KI takes a licken' keeps on ticken'
Warn HS9500I got it hardly used and not working, polished the main bolts that hold the motor on added the washer like Warn reccomends (and some dielectrical grease) and no issue since. preety fast too.

Any one installed a Warn Winch/Mounting Plate on a JK using the factory bumper? I heard it was a ***** and cutting to the OEM bumper is required. :bawling: Not in to cutting the OEM stuff. (not just yet)

Warn dual power and Warn Bumper are really heavy. Winch works great and so does the compressor my only complaint is the bumper holds the winch high and blocks air to the radiator. The vehicle has run hot in extreme conditions. Baja in the summer!!!!!! This set up is tough as nails but I would get a set up that hold the winch lowwer if I had the money to spend again.

not even close to true. Easy install and only cutting required is IF you dont have factory tow hooks. And if you dont all you cut is the little holes for the hooks to go through

I was in the same boat as you. Take a look at my thread called "Bumper Delima" in modification section.

Here are the ones that I have been looking at. Thinking Shrockworks - Stubby.

Shrockworks (Mid-Width)

Mountain Offroad Enterprises (unpainted though - add $$$)

I went for the Warn 9.5ti. wasn't cheap - but hoping I won't have to buy another winch for a long while.
