        What's size battery would you recommend connecting this winch to? To have more then enough power.

        • The Smittybilt Gen2 XRC 12,000 lb. Winch can be used with a stock capacity battery, however we recommend a dual battery setup if continued usage or long pulls are occurring often.

        Can the smittybilt gen2 XRC 12k lb wench fit a stubby poison spyder?

        • The Poison Spyder stubby bumper would need to be winch-ready (mount, plate, etc) and it would fit without issue.

            There when you need it

            Very solid product. Hook is very tough and heavy, comes with smittybilt hook lanyard. Be sure to know where all your cables are going, hardest one will be the grounding which is under the one of the winch shoulders. Remote works as intended, no whirring down on power as winching either. Have yet to put it to real real use, but I;m sure it'll do me fine

            No such thing as to much winch.

            Just want to start by saying this was the easiest install so far. Mount the control box, 3 difrent mounting options with all necessary hardware included. Connect all of the wires, color coded with easy to follow instructions, built the winch in place, run your hot and ground to the battery. Built on the included roller fair lead and attach the supplied hook to the cable. Remember to unspool the winch, and respool under at least 1,000 lbs of load to properly pretention the line on the drum and break in the winch. This winch being water proof was a major plus as it will live out its days in the elements attached to the front of my rig. 12k lbs is the max load and min. load rating is 8,400 lbs. Probably over kill for my 2 door JK, but its better than not having enough winch to effect a self recovery. I have used it once already to pull up a post that was drove and concreated in the ground. The winch never showed the first sign of distress and ended up breaking the concrete I had that the strap wrapped around.

            Works well

            I just recently purchased the 12,000lb smittybilt winch, and it works wonderfully! The installation time was quick and the directions were clear. I am very satisfied with this purchase.
