Using a stubby or otherwise compact bumper on your JL Wrangler adds more off-road clearance but often limits the frame size of usable winches for your vehicle – but these 2018 Wrangler 8000-10500 Pound Winches pack plenty of recovery punch despite their smaller form factor. Made by companies famous for the sturdiness and quality of their components – such as Rugged Ridge, Barricade, and Mean Mother – these winches come with either synthetic rope or steel cable, depending on your preference and choice. They include waterproof parts for all-weather use and often come complete with a roller or hawse fairlead depending on their specific construction. Limited lifetime warranties are common, showing how ruggedly they’re put together. Some include wireless remote controls so that you can control the winch easily from a safe position, too.
