Great Winch - Great Price

Replaced the bumper after the wife hit a deer. Added the winch and used it the first day I had it on to pull out my neighbor who was stuck in his truck. Worked great. Could not be more satisfied.

How many max amps does this draw? Will a 100 amp connector on each line be enough at the grill for easy disconnects when doing other mods?

  • The Rugged Ridge Spartacus Performance 8,500 lb. Winch can pull up to 400 amps under load. It is not recommended to use any kind of connector between the winch motor and the battery.

    Product was everything it was said to be.

    The winch bolted up as promised however the ground connection is on the bottom of the winch and is darn near impossible to attach once bolted to the bumper. Once I got it all wired up it did not work so I rewired and still no power then I realized the control handle has to be plugged in and twisted to the right in order to get power to the control handle. I would recommend this product just attach the ground before you bolt the winch down.
