So I never installed my Warn PowerPlant on the HJ due to the 24V issue. This winch sat on my shop floor for over a year waiting for a solution. The solution turned out to be the FJ62. So I install the winch bumper, then dual batteries, the the fridge and finally the winch. Get it all wired up and go to take it for a test spin... click, click, click. I have a power port that the winch plugs into, so I pull the plug and get the emory cloth out. Plug it back in and go for another test spin, I can power the winch line out, but not in, the air compressor works, but not as it should. I give Warn a call, explain the situation and the tech pretty much knows exactly what the problem is. Some kind of safety switch (non resettable), probably blew when the winch didn't get enough clean juice. Plus, Warn upgraded this part from aluminum to nickel. He starts to take my shipping info, and I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to pay for it. In the end he says he'll throw detailed instructions and the part in the mail, it showed up today... NO CHARGE... NADA... NOTHING. Kudos' to Warn, this winch is no longer under warranty, even though it has very few hours on it. Just thought I'd share, sometimes you don't hear enough positive about vendors.
