      Strong and Fast. Be prepared for what the trails may throw at you. One of the best ways to be prepared is by having a well-made winch that can get you out of sticky situations quickly. Smittybilt's Gen2 XRC 9,500 lb. Winch features a 6.6 HP motor with a 3-Stage Planetary Gear system for a quick recovery. Its reversed gear ratio enables optimum pulling power while still performing at lightning-fast line speeds.

      Lasts a Lifetime. Smittybilt's winch is finished with a rugged UV-resistant matte black coating. The hardware is stainless steel with aluminum crossbars. This winch has a 161.28:1 gear ratio that will easily pull up to 9,500 lbs. Not only does the system look great, it will also last you a lifetime.

      Additional Features. The Smittybilt Gen2 XRC 9,500 lb. Winch features a 4-way roller fairlead and sliding ring gear mounting clutch that will keep the cable from easily snapping.

      Installation. The Smittybilt XRC mounts using a 10.0" x 4.5" bolt pattern. A remote control is included to enable you to instruct the winch both by the winch itself and at a safe distance from whatever you're pulling. A 650CCA battery is recommended as a minimum requirement for winching.

      Lifetime Warranty. To ensure you receive the highest standards, Smittybilt has included lifetime mechanical and 3-year electrical warranties. The winch shall be free from mechanical defects for the life of the Gen2 XRC Winch. With respect to electrical components, this winch shall be free of defects in material and workmanship for 3 years from the date of purchase.

        Winch Install on Barricade Bumper

        Installed on new Barricade bumper. Watched the video which made it easier to understand how everything fit together. Due to space limitations, most challenging part was sticking my hand into the bumper to get nuts and washers started on bolts. Looks good sitting on the bumper.

        2 2016 Wrangler - Bsmith Installation Time: Afternoon

        Good product, bad customer service

        Bought this winch and installed it. Went to do the break in procedure for the winch cable, pulled the cable out and found a kink about half way down the line. Called smittybilt and was told this won’t cause any issues. My problem is I paid for a new winch, a new product should not have any defects. A kink in the wire cable is not normal and is not supposed to be there. I was told that a kink can happen during the manufacturing process of the winch, which I feel like that should be something the company’s qa would check and take care of.
