        Do the Smittybilt winches come with battery cables? If not, I would suggest adding that to the item description.

        Will this winch fit my 2015 Rubicon factory bumper

        • The Smittybilt Gen2 X2O 12,000 lb. Winch will fit 2015 Rubicons with winch ready factory bumpers.

        Helpful (5)

        What is the weight of the winch?

        • The Smittybilt Gen2 X2O 12,000 lb. Winch w/ Synthetic Rope & Wireless Control weights approximately 54lbs.

        Helpful (4)

        I see that a 650 CCA battery is recommended. I have a 600CCA battery, would this battery be sufficient as long as the winch is not used extensively while not running the engine?

        • The Smittybilt Gen2 X2O 12,000 lb. Winch will work best with a battery carrying a minimum capacity of 650CCA. A 600CCA battery can be used but this may overtax the battery and cause premature failure, in addition possibly causing slow winch operation.

            Pulling power for the beast

            This was a great buy to be able to get 12,000 for the price of 10,000. Really like the Gen 3 but couldn't pass up the deal. Control works great!

            Smittybilt gen 2 x20 12,000lb winch.

            So far I have had great luck with this winch. I got it a couple weeks ago, and said I had rather have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. Well several of us went on a trail and needed it. We went down a familiar trail and were able to go father than we had before. Along the way it started raining. We were going up a steep incline with a lot of mud. I had lockers on and still a no go. Winched us up the hill and had to turn around and winch 6 more on up. Pretty much had the cable stretched to the max length. Never gave an issue. Super easy install with great instructions. I would recommend this because of the warranty if nothing else. The wireless is amazing and synthetic rope was the way to go!

            When installing I have a very tight space and it BARELY fit. No issues using it for light things. I have not had to use it for full on winching out of a situation, thankfully, but I don't see any issues moving forward.

            Light weight

            I bought this winch because it is light weight and functional. It was not an easy install for me. I installed it on the Smittybuilt XRC stubby bumper and trying to get the bolts in was no joy. The front cable guide would not allow the use of all the washers on this bumper. There are no instructions so I had some left over parts that I'm not sure what they are for. I watched YouTube videos but none had the same unit I have.

            I have had this winch on my jeep for about a year now and use it fairly often. The other night my brother calls me him and two friends got their trucks stuck and needed help getting out, I recovered three one-ton trucks in a row with no issues I love this winch!!!!!

            Good unit

            The control box was the only thing had a issue with would not stay mount on top. After a few try i got it so after that the install was easy and looks nice and love the fact that the wireless remote control has a long range on it. Will buy again if need another one for another jeep. Took long to install cause of the jeep i have had to take off bumper.
