My Warn xd9000i has been on the front of many of my Jeeps over the years. I have taken it apart and regreased it in the past, and I figured it was due for another dissassembly and rebuild again now that I had the Jeep Wrangler JK. The winch was pretty filthy and the synthetic winch line had definately seen better days. So I looked around to see where I could get rebuild parts for it on line. I came across www.warnserviceparts.com. Now I'm not providing a clickable link to them for the simple fact their customer service was worse then terrible. I order a few gaskets and seals from them. They shipped me the wrong box, then never shipped me the correct parts, I had to call them, and got the "Owner" who promptly didn't remember ever talking to me about things, then when I repeated her conversation she said she would check into it. She called me back and said she was sorry and didn't have any employees to blame this mistake on. The owner blaming an employee for a mistake and telling a customer that. In all it took me almost 3 months to get $12 worth of parts, not a place I will or would recommend doing business with. Since then Mike at www.4x4rockshop.com has become a certified Warn dealer and can get repair parts to you.

What my drum looked like, pretty nasty, it's seen a little water.

Ron AWESOME write up, I have the xd9000i also, its only about 18months old and I cant get it to disengage. I will definitely take it apart now and check it myself instead of having to send it off :bounce:

How often should you do regular maintenance on a winch.. I use mine at least once a month as a air compressor and I always to an inspection of the cable before all runs and do a full ops check.. The winch I have is the powerplant HP.. So far it has been a great winch and haven't had any issues.. *knocks on wood*

I usually do my majority of maintenance after runs. Things like cleaning the winch off, running out the cable and cleaning it off, checking it and then respooling it correctly. Most of my pre run stuff is just making sure it will power in and out and free spool, since I checked everything after the last run.
