    I was reading through my new issue of Petersens and seen this thing, it looks pretty bad ass, but I'm curious how good the compressor is... Has anyone seen one of these in operation yet?? The reviews I've read aren't really in-depth, but a Warn product is usually pretty damn good. The price is roughly $1800.00... What are your thoughts??

    Somehow I'm doubting that's going to fit in my ARB.

    Just means if one thing breaks they're both fubar to get it fixed.

    Not a big fan of two in one. Not in my tools and not in my women.

    I've seen these in use. The compressor works just as well as a comparable say Viair compressor. The other guys hit it on the head though, if you have a problem with one of the components you'll have to take it all off to get worked on or replaced. Better to keep them separate. Plus you can get a good winch and a complete OBA setup for alot less than that. Not to mention that huge thing isn't going to fit in most bumpers made for our trucks.

    Good points guys... The size is an issue and the one for me is if the compressor goes that takes down the recovery option until its back from the repairs...I have been looking at the Viair and that will probably be the route I take.

    A metric fuck ton. I just know nothing about oil changes.

    Quit changing the goddamn subject. :spy:


    That's what she said.
