I just bought the xrc8 comp.
I like it alot so far. The weight and looks are real nice. I am going to relocate the solenoid in the future. Probably grab a spare too since they can go bad.
On the trail I haven't used it yet so I can't say but it pulled my jeep with the ebrake on on concrete. So it's got some power.
But you can never go wrong with a warn. I would have bought one except for the price I can't afford compared to the smitty. Hope I don't regret it after a few years.
