    This Smittybilt Gen2 X20 10,000-pound winch with synthetic rope and wireless remote is for those of you having 1987 and up Wrangler, and are looking for a waterproof, very well-built winch that comes with a synthetic line on it. Now there are going to be winches all over the price range. This is going to be, in my opinion, a very fairly priced winch for the quality that you're getting and it does come out of the box with this synthetic line on it. Of course, there is a version of this winch with a steel cable, and that is going to be a little bit less expensive. However, I really like a synthetic line on a winch for a couple of different reasons. The main reason that a synthetic line is a really nice upgrade is because it's a lot safer than a steel cable. While a synthetic line will still stretch like a steel cable will when it's under load, it doesn't store that energy, so if a synthetic line breaks it falls to the ground, whereas when a steel cable snaps, it will sling back and can hit a person, a vehicle, cause damage or injury. So, again, the synthetic line is going to be a lot safer. The other reason I like synth is because it's going to be easier to handle. It's going to be a lighter weight and it won't kink up like a steel cable will. So especially if you're dragging this up a steep, muddy hill, it's a lot easier to drag a synthetic line than it is a steel cable. Now, the only downside if you wanna call it that of a synthetic line is that it is a little bit more maintenance. You do wanna make sure that it stays very, very clean. And even if you take the best care of it, they do recommend that you change your synthetic line more often than your steel line so there is a little bit more upkeep. Now, all in all, as I said, this is going to be a well-built winch. This is going to be a waterproof solenoid like I haven't seen from a lot of other companies before. So if you do a lot of deep watercrossings, a lot of deep mud off-roading, this is going to be a nice option for you. There are a couple different parts to a winch. Here you have the winch body itself which, of course, is Smittybilt Gen2 winch body. It's gonna be very sleek, very modern looking, and of course sealed up so it is completely waterproof. Up here you do, of course, have a clutch engagement handle so you can very easily freeze-pull out the line if you were to need to do that to make it a little bit easier and quicker to get the line attached to whatever you're winching off of. Over here you have your solenoid box, and that can be mounted in one of two different locations on the winch, either on the side of the winch body here, or in the center up over the top of this spool. If you did wanna get some longer wires, you could, of course, remote mount that solenoid box. But because this thing is waterproof, having it up on the front here isn't really going to hurt anything. You have a on/off and wireless switch on the side of the solenoid box, which leads me right into the fact that you have two different controllers with this winch built into one. A lot of other winches that have a wireless remote will have one wireless remote here, and then have a wired remote which is your backup remote over here. So you really have two to keep track of. What Smittybilt did is really nice. They built one remote that can be wireless, if you have it unplugged and you have a battery in it. That way you can take this with you, use it from a safe distance away from the vehicle. Or if you're close enough, if you want to be wired, if the batteries die, you can simply plug this into the cable, plug the cable into the winch body itself, and you have a wired remote. But you're really only keeping track of one remote instead of two, which is really nice. The other thing that I like that Smittybilt did was labeling all of their connections. Now, there are only a few connections from the solenoid onto the winch body itself, and then from the solenoid up to the battery. But these are all labeled with letters. They all have tags on them, on both the body and on the wires themselves which make getting this installed a very simple process. Installing a winch is very simple, a one out of three wrench installation, and only about an hour's time to get this bolted up. Of course, you will have to have either a winch-ready bumper or a winch plate on your bumper that will accept this winch beforehand but that's standard across the board for all winches. And this is going to have a standard winch footprint, so it will fit on most any of those bumpers or winch plates. The first step is going to be mounting your winch body onto your winch plate or your bumper. And there are just a couple of bolts that you'll need to get that bolted down and in place. Then you can go ahead and install your solenoid box, run all of your wires from the solenoid to the winch body, and finally your positive and negative through your grill, along your fender well and up to your battery to pick up power for the winch. After that it's just a matter of attaching your synthetic line onto the drum, firing everything up and spooling it in. Now you are gonna wanna spool this in under a little bit of a load. It's always a good idea to attach the other end of your rope to a tree. Set your parking brake on your Jeep to a clicker two, and leave it in neutral so there's a little bit of tension on the line that's gonna keep you from pulling one wrap of the winch cable through the lower wraps when you're actually using this out on a tread. This winch will run you right around $550, and I do think that's a fair price for what you're getting. That is the going rate for a synthetic line winch that has a wireless remote in this category. And the fact that you're getting a waterproof solenoid box, something that is going to hold up really well out in the weather, or for those deep watercrossings, or those guys that like a lot of mud, this thing is going to be very, very well-built. Of course, you can step up to a much more expensive winch that's gonna have a few more bells and whistles on it. But for the price range, I do think you're getting a lot of quality. So if you're looking for a waterproof winch that has a synthetic line and a wireless remote, I definitely recommend taking a look at this mini-built X20 10,000-pound that you can get right here at extremeterrain.com.

    Wireless Operation. A wireless remote control is included with the Smittybilt Gen2 X2O winch for both wired and wireless operation. The remote has a 12-foot lead and swaps seamlessly between both configurations allowing you to unplug and get a closer look to your pull target, from a safe distance of course. In addition to the added safety the wireless control provides you, this 6.6 horsepower winch has a 3-stage planetary gear train that delivers lightning speeds to pull your Wrangler out of the mud or any predicament quickly.

    Strong and Quick. With a single line pull of 10,000 lbs. and lightning-fast line speeds thanks to optimized gear ratios you’ll be pleased with the Smittybilt X2O winch's performance. The X20 winch features a 218:1 fear ratio matched with a sliding ring gear clutch and an automatic out-of-drum braking system. Smittybilt pairs your peace-of-mind with unparalleled performance in its X2O line of winches.

    Additional Features. This Smittybilt X20 winch features a hawse fairlead that helps reduce wear-and-tear on the synthetic rope while keeping it from binding. It also has a cable that can pull up to 98.5' with a waterproof rating of IP58 for long-lasting usage. Line Pull Speeds

      Winching Away

      I purchased the GEN2 X20 Smittybilt winch because of the claim for ease of installation and reliability. I haven't had a chance to use it yet; however it's easy to install. Took me less than hour, with the most difficult piece being attaching the power box to the winch. Brackets are flimsy and even thought it's on, I'm concerned a few rough rides will dislodge it. I purchased the 10K; wish now I had bought the 12K. Instructions aren't overly helpful, but easy to figure out.

      Smittybilt not wireless

      Bought this for wireless function. Works well with wire attached but does not work wirelessly. When I called to ask what should be done I was told to remove the control box on top, and bypass switch. This winch sits down inside the bumper and tight to the Jeep grill, not an easy process to bypass switch and see if that fixes the problem. Where is quality control? These things should be tested before they are shipped out to the public. Not happy that I have to repair their equipment.

      Perfect fit

      Great winch, fits perfect on the Barricade Trail force HD bumper was able to center mount and hide all wiring. It’s tight but stills fits nice. I wanted synthetic winch, was hesitant because of the price but happy I did it. Had to buy the license plate mount for it too because of IL law. Bought a winch cover on Amazon because couldn’t find one on extreme that was for this winch.

      ZNice

      Great winch, had a 13000 steel, wanted a rope winch for weight and ease of handling, hook up is simple, it is recommended to but a 1000 lbs of load on coiling, so it sits nice on spool, I took in on street, very slight incline and attacked to a car and pulled my jeep to the car, neighbors were entertained!

      On the new JL

      Install is very easy. Maybe a 45 minute job. I have it on a Barricade Extreme HD Full Width front bumper on the new 2018 JL Wrangler. Mounts fine in the bumper but not much room, it actually fits up against the plastic grill but the only issue with that is that you cannot do a center on top mount of the controller because there is no room to run the wires behind, but the side mount works fine, just doesn't look as nice. Wireless control is pretty convenient. Seems like it will do the job. To tention the rope and spool it on, I had the wrangler on top of a hill and pulled up my Ranger side by side and it took it easy.

      Awesome product

      Got my winch pretty quick, fairly easy install. The instructions for a first tOmer were a little confusing but after all the wiring was complete it just took minutes to bolt on and run the positive and negetive leads to the battery. Solid winch, runs amazing. I love the synthetic rope and wireless remote.

      Smittybilt Winch

      Was pretty easy to install (before bumper was installed). Looks awesome and works even better. The wireless remote is pretty handy. The synthetic rope is also and nicer and safer way to winch out of a jam, but the drop in weight of the entire setup on the front end was a plus for me. Great product, I am very happy with my purchase.

      I really could not be happier with both the performance and look of this winch. Easy install and everything fit just as it should. Wireless controller works as it should. My only complaint is that the spring loaded clip on the hook was missing. A quick call to Smittybilt took care of that.
