You didn't get a Jeep to spend all your off-road time on well-worn trails. You want to explore unknown territory and blaze your own trail. Sometimes that means running into trouble, like getting stuck in mud or ditches, and that's why you need a reliable electric winch. Even when you're on your own and a hundred miles from help, you can get yourself out of sticky situations almost as quickly as you got into them.
Why Electric? Electric winches are some of the most popular winches on the market. It isn't just that they're more affordable than hydraulic winches, they have other advantages too. They still work when your engine is dead, for example, and require very little maintenance. As long as you keep them covered to protect them from the elements, they'll keep working fine. At 4wd.com we have a great selection of electric winch accessories and electric winches for sale.
Which Electric? Which electrical winch is right for you? The first factor to consider is the weight of your vehicle. Don't make the mistake of thinking the pulling capacity of the winch should exactly match the weight of your Jeep. To make sure you don't overwork the motor, you'll want a winch with a capacity at least 1.5 times your Jeep's weight, 2 times to be extra sure. That means if you have a 2006 Jeep Liberty that weights around 4,000 pounds, you can feel completely confident buying an 8000 lb. winch.
Don't forget to factor in the most likely situations you might find yourself in. Waterproof winches and winches that can be activated from inside your Jeep are all options. Accessories like steel cable, gloves and tree saver straps can make your winch stronger and less damaging to you and the environment.

When you're willing to take your Jeep beyond where the road ends, there are bound to be a few unexpected obstacles. A little assistance is a great thing to have, whether you're out on your own or with a group. Pull yourself and others out of a sticky situation with a winch, giving you more leverage and pulling power than your vehicle alone. At 4WD, you'll find the Jeep winch that fits your needs at a price that can't be beat.
Types of Jeep Winches
Like comparing a gourmet pizza with one from a box, there are different styles and grades to choose from. Which one works for you? It depends on what you need. Choose from wired remote control leads or a direct switch, or pick one with a wireless remote for simpler use. What type of line do you want? With options like twisted cable, wire, and synthetic rope, you'll be ready to pull your buddies free in minutes.
What Size Winch for Jeep Drivers?
When you play hard, you want a winch that can bust you free from anything. The winch you choose should have a line pull that's at least as much as your Jeep weighs, although the more capacity the better. Anchor your winch in an aftermarket Jeep front bumper and don't forget the recovery strap and accessories you'll need to attach yourself to trees, trucks, and broken-down off-roaders.
What Are the Best Winch Brands?
The best winch for Jeep Wranglers is the one you can afford, and the one you have when you need it. Top brands include Warn, Smittybilt, and 4Wheel Drive Hardware with line pull ratings from 1,000 to 18,000 pounds.
