            I actually had the same thing happen to the replacement that was sent for the first piece of junk. You could not unspool by hand. the drum is supposed to spin freely when the clutch is disengaged and try as you may it wasn't budging on TWO of the same winches. Extreme Terrain was awesome in taking care of this problem and doing right by me, their customer service is the reason I keep coming back. Will be ordering the Engo soon. Note: Any winch you put on a TJ you will need to at least swing your bumper out or completely remove it because the cross brace is in the way of the back winch bolts.

            Stout Ready for Recovery

            Lots of reviews of various units and chose this one for two reasons, price and waterproof. Well made and installation was fairly straightforward .

            Very easy install

            Sometimes it pays to go with a name brand, this Smittybilt winch mounted great to my Barricade Adventure HD Front Bumper, took about 2 hours to install. Pulling power should be more than I need for my 2 door Jeep JK. Watch the video and you sail right thru this install.

            Smittybilt 9.5 works great

            So far so good. This winch was an easy install with quality hardware. Used a couple times this year in deep snow and has performed flawlessly. Using on my 14 JKUR.

            Great value

            Great product. Second xrc winch I have owned. I loved my old one so much I knew I wanted another one when I got my next jk. Well built, mounting was smooth, cables are good length and quality. Instructions were a bit vague but a YouTube video can clear up any install questions. Reccomend installing wires to winch before bolting onto winch plate/ bumper, but difficulty will really be determined by which bumper you have and your clearance.

            Great value for the money. Looks great and has ample.pulling power. Installation was simple and easy. If your installing this with a new bumper, reccomend mounting the wrench to the bumper before mounting the bumper on your jeep.

            Very nice winch! Looks great, installation was a breeze, just follow the directions. Took maybe two hours to install. Works well, but haven't had to use it in tough situations as of yet. Have no doubt it will do as designed!

            Great for the price

            It is mounted on a 2.5L jeep tj, so this can pull about 2.5x the weight of my jeep. It has gotten me out of everything with ease. It's pulled friends out of mud that weigh probably closer to 6,000 lbs plus the mud, and it pulls them out easily as well. It installed very easily, simple instructions. I took of the bumper so I could get better angles at everything and it made life a lot easier.

            Great deal

            This winch is priced the same everywhere I looked. But I got a military discount with Extreme Terrain so I paid just over $450 when I would have paid about $530 at the other places. Shipping free and fast, got it in two days. Easy to install, best bang for the buck and it looks very strong. Can't wait to use it.

            Excellent Winch

            This was very easy to wire up. The directions are self explanatory. I wired this up in my kitchen on a thursday night and installed it on my Jeep the next day. The bottom bolts were a little tricky to get installed on my DV8 front bumper. I could not use washers as the bolts would not connect. I had to research how to wind the rope onto the winch the first time, but i connected it to my F-350 and it rolled up perfect. Looks fantastic!

            Haven't had to use it yet, but we have spooled and un-spooled to make sure everything works. I have some jealous friends out there. :) Very happy with my purchase, and having rope instead of wire cable from the get go is a huge plus!
