Great winch, bad install directions...
from East TX
Comments about Smittybilt XRC8 Comp Series 8,000 lb. Winch:
For the money I believe it's the best winch on the market. Knowing what I know now, it's an easy install but the directions just didnt get specific enough on what tools were needed and what order the install needed to take place. I had to take the winch back off to mount the ground wire and to mount the control box. The control box screws were very flimsy and stipped out easily. The item would be perfect with just a few minor improvements. FYI, If you are mounting this to an SRC bumnper, make sure you have a 6 inch extension and a u-joint socket attachment. My wife couldnt even fit her hand in there to start the bolts. Over all I am still very pleased with the product and it's functionality. It has a fast pull even under load. You will be happy with it, just have patience during the install.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
