        5 2015 Rubicon - Mhoiseth Installation Time: Full Day

        A little more difficult to install than I thought

        One I got this installed, I love it. The mounting plat was the most difficult to install. It’s a very tight fit and really only goes in one way. My problem was the vacuum pump relocation. Why in the world Jeep decided to put it where they did is dumbfounding but I got it. Took over 6 hours from start to finish.

        Best winch

        I’ve tried a lot of winches over the years and this was by far the best so far. The instructions say that you are supposed to put about 1,000 pounds of tension on the first 50 feet on the spool. I pulled my wife’s car up my driveway which is a 3 grade and her car is 4,500 pounds. I pulled her about 75 feet in about 3 minutes. This winch never got hot or even strained at all. I am very happy with this purchase.

        Winch hooked up to the WRC bumper perfect. Comes with all the required wires and super easy to install. I recommend hooking up the control box before trying to installing it on the bumper. Yes rookie installer but even so still was about an hour to install.

        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.

      What is the weight of the winch?

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

      Helpful (7)

      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.
