Dependable Recovery for All Your Adventures. As exciting as taking your Wrangler out on the off-road trails is, you should always be prepared for any situation you may encounter, such as getting stuck in the mud, or in a ditch, or at the bottom of a steep incline. The WARN VR8 8,000-Pound Winch is the ideal recovery winch for those situations. This winch comes with 8,000 pounds of pulling force, ensuring there isn’t a ditch, sticky mud, or incline from which you can’t pull yourself out.

Beefed-Up, Budget-Friendly 8,000-Pound Winch. The WARN VR8 8,000-Pound Winch is designed as a budget-friendly recovery winch that doesn’t compromise safety and functionality. Power is provided by an improved series-wound engine that runs a 3-stage planetary gear train with a 216:1 gear ratio for efficient power delivery. Its best-in-class automatic cone brake can hold the winch’s maximum load rating without slipping. A durable steel winch cable provides secure anchoring. Finally, this winch is controlled by a wired remote with a 12-foot lead line, enabling you to run the component from a convenient and safe spot.

Versatile-Design Control Pack. The WARN VR8 8,000-Pound Winch’s versatile control pack is designed to be easily unmounted and relocated. This feature lets you mount the winch in tight locations, or to simply give your Jeep’s front end a sleek look. Please note that relocating this control pack will require a relocating kit.

Uncomplicated Installation. The WARN VR8 8,000-Pound Winch installs easily on your winch-ready front bumper using a 10 x 4.50-inch mounting pattern. Standard hand tools are all that are required for installation, and all mounting hardware is included for an uncomplicated install procedure.

Includes a Limited Lifetime Mechanical & 7-Year Limited Electronics Warranty Backing. The WARN VR8 8,000-Pound Winch includes a limited lifetime warranty backing its mechanical components, and a 7-year limited warranty covering its electronics. Please visit the manufacturer’s website for more details.

Application. The WARN VR8 8,000-Pound Winch fits all Jeep Wrangler models.
