      Review & Installation Video

      Hey, guys. Sara from, and today we have a review and install of the Barricade 9,500-pound winch. This winch features universal fitment, meaning it will mount up to most winch capable bumpers with a mounting footprint of 10 inches by four and a half inches. This winch has a 9,500-pound single-line pulling capacity and features a five and a half horsepower, 12-volt series wound motor. This winch comes with 94 feet of steel cable with a replaceable hook. It also includes a controller with a 12-foot lead as well as this roller fairlead that mounts to the front of your bumper. Coming in at around $370, this winch is on the lower end price-wise when compared to other winches of the same rating. This is mostly due to the steel line. Now, some great parts about steel is that it is abrasion-resistant and it is less maintenance and synthetic line. However, the one downside to steel is that if it does break, it has a tendency to fly through the air, causing damage or injury, where synthetic would just fall to the ground. If you're worried about this, you can definitely add a winch line dampener which would cut down on this. However, if you are an avid off-roader, you use your winch a lot, you might want to consider spending the extra money on a synthetic line. Some of the downsides of synthetic line, in addition to being more expensive, is it's not quite as abrasion resistant and will require more maintenance than the steel line. So, for the occasional off-roader, the steel line will be more weather resistant, and it's gonna save you some money. I'm giving this install a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It can be done in approximately an hour. So, let's jump right into our install. For this install, we used a 16-millimeter wrench, Phillips head screwdriver, needle nose pliers, cutters, 10, 14, 16, and 17-millimeter sockets, three and six-inch extensions, three strive ratchet, and an impact gun. So, before we can mount our winch to our bumper, we do need to prep the windshield a little bit. We're gonna start by mounting the control box to the top of our winch.Grab your control box, line up these hooks on the front bar and these tabs on the back bar. These tabs are held on with two Phillips head screws. You may need to loosen them in order to clear the bar. Grab your Phillips head screwdriver and tighten these down. With our control box mounted, we can now mount each lead to its corresponding color. I'm gonna flip this around so you can get a better look. This yellow wire is gonna go to the one with the yellow ring around the bottom here. Remove the nut and one of the washers. Route the lead with the yellow boot underneath the others and over the top of the stud here. Replace the washer and the nut and grab a 14-millimeter socket and tighten this down. Moving to the black wire, remove the nut over the stud with the corresponding black ring around the bottom and one of the washers. Route the wire with the black boot over the top of the stud. Replace the washer and replace the nut. Tighten this down. Repeat that process for the final power wire. Once all of these wires are attached, don't forget to put the boots over the top.We're now gonna turn the winch to the side so we can attach the two ground wires to the bottom lead. Starting with the smaller ground wire, we're gonna attach this one. Remove the nut here as well as the lock washer. Now, we're going to attach the longer black wire. One end is gonna go to the bottom of our winch, and the other one attaches to the battery. Replace the lock washer and the nut. Grab your 14-millimeter socket and tighten this down. So, that's gonna be it for the wiring on our winch. Later on, these other two ends will connect to our battery, but for now, we're gonna get this roller fairlead mounted on our bumper. This fairlead will mount to the front of your bumper, right on the outside here. So, grab the included hardware and let's get these mounted up.Grabbing the shorter hardware with one washer on the bolt side, slide it through the mounting bracket on your roller lead, and then through the hole on your bumper. Once it's lined up, grab the lock washer and the nut and put it over the back end of your bolt. Repeat that with the other side of the bracket. Using a 16-millimeter wrench, hold the bolt head on the side of your roller lead and a 17-millimeter socket. Tighten down the nut at the back of your bumper. Tighten down the other side. Now, we can grab our winch and get it in place on our bumper, lining it up with the mounting holes. Slide the square nuts into the tabs on your Barricade winch. Repeat that with the remaining nuts, one on each corner of your winch. From underneath the bumper, line up the bolts with the mounting holes and tighten these down. Grab your 16-millimeter socket, and you may need an extension here, and tighten this down.We can now pop the hood so we can hook up the positive and negative lead on our winch to our battery. Now, we can run our wiring through the bottom of the grille and up into our engine bay. We're gonna route it around the edge of the engine bay here into our battery. We routed our ground wire around the edge of the engine bay here. Our power wire was a little bit shorter, so we went under the intake and popped out right here. You can route this however you're comfortable with in your Jeep. Just make sure that it is up out of the way of anything hot or moving and then zip tie, so it doesn't move around in your engine bay. But now we can disconnect our negative terminal on our battery so we can hook up our leads. Grab a 10-millimeter socket and disconnect the negative terminal. Going to the closest of the 10-millimeter nuts, disconnect this from the positive terminal of the battery using a 10-millimeter socket. Place the positive lead over this terminal on the battery and replace the nut. Grab your 10-millimeter socket and tighten this down.We're now gonna remove the nut on this side of our negative terminal so that we can now connect the lead from our winch. Replace the nut and tighten this down using your 10-millimeter socket. Now we can replace the negative terminal on our battery. Tighten down this nut to attach our negative terminal. With our wiring complete, close up the hood, and now we can finish our winch before we test it. At this point, we can release the zip tie that's holding the end of our cable so that we can finish it through the bumper and fairlead and attach our hook. Remove the cotter pin and then remove this pin out of our hook and install it over the islet of our cable. Re-Install your cotter pin and then just remember to bend the larger end up, so it doesn't fall out.Now, if you'd like, you can install this included flag over the end of your hook. All right. Let's test out our winch. The handle on your winch should be in the engaged position. If you'd like to pull some cable off this spool, simply flip this handle around and roll it out. To hook up your controller, remove the rubber boot, neutral lineup this connector with this tab on the bottom here that goes in the slot right here. So, with this controller, you're able to control the winch and winch it out or back in with this button. So, the controller does have quite a bit of length on it to help you out in all those emergency situations, either on the trail or in the office. So, once you've tested your winch, you can spool it back in under some load and you can either store it directly against this fairlead, or if your bumper comes to these nice d-rings, you can hook it to those and then pull it tight. All right. So, that is gonna do it for the review and install of our Barricade winch. Remember for all things Jeep, keep it at

        Great winch but the cable was never connected

        Bought this winch a while ago and finally hit some hard trails that I had to use it on. When I pulled it out and connected it to the tree and tried to bring the cable in it was just free spinning. So I made sure it was off free spool, it was, the problem was the end of the cable usually is bolted to the drum. But In my case it wasn’t.

        be sure to mount when the bumper is off the jeep

        Photos of this winch do not show the control box mounted on top of the winch. I am concerned about it being pulled off when off roading in brush country I know it is protected by a bull bar, but still I was hoping it was down along the side of the winch. It free wheels in 2 positions, the free wheeling position, and the off position... Not happy with that. I would mount on bumper before the bumper is mounted if you get the same barricade bumper I purchased. Not as easy as the lady in the video makes it look

        Great bumper

        I’ve had this bumper since it came out. It holds my earn 9.5 CTI no problem and it looks great. It’s a little on the heavy side it’s held up well after years of wheeling.

        Buyers beware

        The build quality of it is OK to install insulation my 16-year-old and 15-year-old kids did it in less than two hours. for an entry-level I would recommend it because it is the best buy for the money. Now the winch quality though is the only thing we do not like about the winch. it is slow sluggish and cheaply made. The controller box plastic was cracked and broken but if you install it extreme terrain will not want to honor the warranty according to (Nicholas) so that is why I am only given it a 1 star review is because Nicholas didn’t honor the winch warranty instead he preached policy

      5 Top Rated Questions

      Will I need to buy a winch mounting plate? Or is that included?

      • The Barricade 9,500 lb. Winch (Item Number J100204) does not include the winch plate, a winch plate would need to be purchased separately in order to mount this on your Jeep.

      Will this fit on a JL Rubicon stock steel bumper?

      • If the stock OEM bumper on the JL has a mounting winch plate then this will fit on that. XT7SlotJ4Y

      My jeep doesn't look to have a place to mount the silver wire feeder for this winch... I have a DV8 front bumper. It does have a wench mount but doesn't seem to have a place to install the front silver guard... How does this install? Any photos of the part separately so I can see the bolt holes snd where i could mount it. Also, is that even required to be able to use the winch.

      • The silver guard that is included with the Barricade winch: is called a roller fairlead. The fairlead will mount to some aftermarket bumpers that have a mount in front of the winch mount. This guard is not necessary, if your bumper does not include a place to mount the roller fairlead in front of the winch. The winch can still be used with out it.

      I understand it can't go underwater. Can it hold up to heavy snow or rain fall? Is a cover absolutely required to prevent water failure?

      • The Barricade 9,500 lb. Winch is not rated to be submerged, but it is water resistant- rain and pressure washer would be fine. We would suggest a cover to help prevent water damage and to prevent damage to the winch line. Neither synthetic or metal lines are meant to be exposed to the elements for extended periods of time.

      Sorry, I hit the wrong button earlier. I need to know if you have a submersible winch.

      • The Barricade winches are not submersible at this time. The Smittybilt Gen2 X2O winch is a great submersible option.
