    Best portable air compressor under $200?

    I use a 24V ARB compressor for my lockers with the Inflator kit for well over 5 plus years. It gets used on average once a month for re-inflating my 315 75 R16 Cooper STTs from 12 psi to road travelling presure of 40 psi. Its not portable , but excellent kit! Anything that the others...

    8274-50 rust

    That is very sad. I would talk to Warn about that. On the top picture (The clutch engagement T handle ) Should have lots of Greese from the factory. I understand that it was out in the weather. Even if there was no silicone there it should have taken many years to do...

    Another 9.5XP vs M8274 - Your Thoughts

    If the price is right, the Toyota "UPRIGHT" winch is the next best compared to the 8274 , Reason is the Toyota upright are expensive to buy, and expensive to repair and quite rare in North America

    Another 9.5XP vs M8274 - Your Thoughts

    For the ROCKY the 9.5 is acceptable. I have seen people fry 8274s and I have heard of people frying low pros. The 9.5 should drop right in there and you are ready for Borneo. The 8274 is pretty heavy, that is my concern.

    The 8274 fits right in an ARB bumper. That is a pretty clean 8274.
