Damn.
Both those trucks look very nice but those prices are about twice what they are down here. I did look at two trucks that were asking $7000, but they were both '99s with under 100k miles.

Greg, let me know when you find a good one in the Inland Empire. I've been watching your craigslist but I haven't seen anything. I've been checking all of the SoCal and AZ craigslists.

LOL. Every EE thread turns into a gun thread eventually.

Oops, I thought I was posting that in the plumber's snorkel thread. Must be fate.

I was bored this weekend so I did my annual OCD Zanio treatment on the black Discovery.

http://www.zainostore.com/

For most the Zaino process is going to be considered overkill. For the street 2004 Discovery that (like most black cars) suffers from "spiderwebbing" on the paint surface its amazing. What I love about Zaino is the amount of product required is almost unbelievably small. You can add a layer on a Discovery with <1/2oz of these products. In this case, more is not better....

This product process work equally well on trail-pinstripes (although I would use layers of Fusion PC (perhaps misted with water which increases the aggressiveness somewhat) then switch to Z2.

This round consisted of...

Wash
Claybar
Wash
Z5 (ZFX'd)
Z6
Z5 (ZFX'd) then left overnight
Z6

I should have finished with a layer (or two....jesus) of Z2 but I'm over it for now. I will come back and after the next wash add those on.

I'm sure they're fishing with the price showing 2995 in the headline and $4995 but had to throw it up. Probably more miles than you are looking for....

I'm thinking about building the bumper for the new disco around the Warn 9.5xp.
Anyone using this winch?

I like fast line speed with the automatic V8 so I'll leave the Husky to the 110.
I really loved my Warn HS9500i on the 97 disco. That winch was a champ. I'm guessing it recovered almost every truck it went on a trip with and self-recovered countless times. And man was it fast.


But since I'm righting the wrongs of the past I don't want an integrated solenoid this time around. I want the same performance of the HS9500i but no mayan pyramid.


I think 9.5xp fits the bill. (ignore that terrible remote)
The loaded line speed specs of the xp are better than the hs, but the unloaded line speed is much slower. I guess that's not that important.

Has anyone used this 9.5xp? Does it live up to Kyle's old "fishing reel" nickname?
Spare me the anti-planetary arguments. Obviously I've owned and used both a lot.

I've been using the 9K XP for the last 2 years which replaced an older 9k XD.

The line speed is definitely slower, depends on whether you see that as an issue. Otherwise performs flawlessly.

IMG_3966

Subjectively it survives wet dunking better than the XD did.

IMG_3930

I take my winch apart every winter to lube and clean and the XP has less ingress than the XD did. So much so that I replaced the motor on the XD twice due to corrosion over a 5-6 year period. I've owned the XP for two plus years and so far it has not shown the initial corrosion I recall on the XD.

My solenoid pack is located within the seatbox next to the battery and cutoff switch and has never been wet so I can't comment on the longevity of it.

That sounds pretty good, but I'm surprised to hear it's slower than an XD. That's pretty slow.

That's a pretty good dunking in that second pic.

I forgot to add that the overrun on the XP is a little more than you might expect. Also I have a different remote which looks more robust than what is pictured. The button layout is side to side versus up and down. Not sure when Warn went to that remote.

The Warn remote was too good. They had to change it.
