      Will this winch fit on my 2016 wrangler Rubicon hard rock edition front steel stock bumper. I understand that there needs to be a winch plate installed in the bumper. And do you sell ssid winch plate????

      Will this fit on a 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon with a steel winch ready bumper?

      • Yes, the Smittybilt Gen2 XRC 12,000 lb. Winch will be compatible with the Steel Winch Ready Bumper if you have the Mopar winch plate installed.

          Hubby has his winch!

          Thank you for your sale; your awesome delivery but hubby thinks 'Brown Santa' is getting a little overworked to our house. And I said 'Sorry,not sorry'.

          3 2010 Wrangler - MarkM Installation Time: Full Day

          Not impressed with the fit

          I bought this winch in the hopes that it would be a perfect fit to my Atlas XRC bumper. I spoke to a few extreme terrain consultants and they said it would be a perfect fit and that it was designed for that particular bumper. Well it wasn’t. I could only mount the controller on the top of the winch over the rope spool, as there was not enough room over the motor due to the bumper configuration. It took me about 3 times to get all of the rope to fit on the spool as there appears to be to much cable for the spool? We stretched it out a few times which appeared to help. 10 less feet would have been perfect. I also bought the XRC weather protectant cover which should have been a good fit but again, it wasn’t. I’m going to have to return the cover as it can’t/won’t fit over the winch due to the winch being as far forward in the bumper cavity as possible. I used the furthest mounting holes provided but the winch still barely fit. I can’t even fit a piece of paper in between the winch and the bumper never mind a thin cover. Luckily, I have a friend who is a mechanic that was able to help. He said that this was the most difficult winch he has ever installed. They don’t tell you that the bumper needs to be removed to successfully mount the winch.

          4 2011 Wrangler - PaulS Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

          Not what was expected but good

          Took a little routing to get the positive cable to work but managed. Installation was a breeze. Says wireless remote with 12' lead but the remote is hardwired. Was expecting a wireless remote. 4 stars because after only 15' of first reel to set rope, unit popped and stopped working. After minor troubleshooting I discovered they had installed a measly 3 amp fuse in the solenoid housing. My atv wench has a bigger fuse. Replaced with a 10 amp and works like a charm.

          5 2017 Wrangler - AlbertS Installation Time: Full Day

          No complaints

          It fit and mounted without incident. The positive battery lead is just long enough but will fit with good routing. Pulled some items around the lot and it works great. Called factory and got good support.
