I just had this winched installed and absolutely appreciate the helpfulness of the 4wheel parts team. I work while they are open so they were able to work with me and I dropped the truck off with a hide a key overnight and picked it up the next night with the winch installed in my ARB brushgaurd/bumper on my Chevy 1500. On the way home from picking up the truck it was raining and a car in front of me slide off of the road Into a ditch. After checking to make sure the driver was ok I was able to get the winch going in no time with the wireless remote feature. The winch worked beautifully pulling the Kia from the ditch and the synthetic line wound back up perfectly unlike the regular steal cable I've had in the past where you'd have to be careful with binding and kinks. The only complaint I have is with the hidden witch bumper the clutch lever is supposed to be rotated to face the top of the bumper since the winch is mounted sideways and that's something they forgot/didn't do which makes adjusting the clutch lever a bit awkward. Other then that this winch will be used many times throughout the coming months for recovery and any thing else I can think of. For the $ I think this is the best witch on the market and would very much recommend.
This product is great!
Purchased this winch after alot of reading. For the money felt this was my best value in a winch. I live in Colorado near the mountains and have been hesitant to venture too far off the beaten path with my TJ until now! I installed this winch in an ARB bumper which was a very tight fit but worked out nicely. Just like many other reviews my battery was dead in the controller but my local 4 Wheel Parts store gave me a new one. My TJ is a hobby ride so I have not put the winch to real use yet but when wrapping the line under a pretty heavy load did not have any heat from the winch at all. If anything changes on this as time goes on I will be sure to pass the info along.
Haven't used it yet. It was easy to install. I like the synthetic rope. It won't rust like a cable would. My bumper hides most of the winch. I can't use the cover it came with. I love the wireless feature.
The wireless controller works great from start n the cab or 20 ft away!
This winch looks great on a Silver Jeep with a Black bumper. I have only used it once to pull the Jeep up the hill (you have to install rope under a load). The pull was a good speed and smooth. The install was somewhat easy. However mounting the electrical box to the winch itself was a PAIN. I found it best to remove the front brace bar of the winch and then the box fits on easily.
Its so nice to have the wireless remote so you can check the lines and snatch block and any of the other connections because it has a much farther range than the 12 ft. wire! I have never had a winch that free spooled as easy as this one!
My question is the same as previously asked and answered. The Staff Reviewer answer appears incorrect. Just looked at the hook on a newly unboxed X20-10K GenII. There is no pin to remove the hook to allow replacement. Previously asked Q&A: The issue I am wondering is how to get the hook off the wince line? The reason I want to install a Factor 55 Pro link. I know if you didn't care about the hook you could cut it off but be a nice hook for a spare or another use to try and save it. Asked on 10/21/2014 by Joe from Utah Staff Reviewer A: Joe, the winch hook on the Smittybilt X2O-10K Waterproof Synthetic Rope Wireless Winch Gen2 with Fairlead can be removed easily by taking out the cotter pin that holds it in. I hope this helps!

Swamper1, the Smittybilt X2O-10K Waterproof Synthetic Rope Wireless Winch Gen2 with Fairlead will need to be spliced into the rope. The steel cable uses a cotter pin but the rope needs to be spliced in. It's a very simple job and there are a ton of videos out there on how to do it. Hope this helps!

I accidentally left my remote turned on and flattened the battery, it still works ok with the cord connected but I want to use it wirelessly. Is the battery rechargeable and if so how do I charge it?
Asked by Barry from Launceston Tasmania on
