Best Winch Ever!

Great Bang for the Buck

Great value for the price. Easy install. My only complaint is the hardware wasn't completely correct. The bolts for the back portion of the mounting plate that replace the factory sway bar bolts are way too long. Winch operation is excellent. I have used mine so far to break and pull a downed tree off a trail and also to pull another vehicle up a steep driveway. I'm very impressed for a 9,500 lb winch.

Do you sell this winch remote separately?

Asked by Joe from New Jersey on

Hey Joe, the Smittybilt XRC-9.5K Waterproof Winch Gen2 does have the remote sold separately but is not listed on our website so you would need to call in. Thanks for your question.

Answered by Devin B. ext 4835 from New Jersey on

I recently used my winch to its capacity on a single part line, when it wouldn't come anymore I backed the winch off to reposition,when I went back to the jeep the winch would not travel in or out under power. Is there an overload relay that can be reset or do I have a serious problem

Asked by Mike from South Paris Maine on

Hi Mike, This Smittybilt XRC-9.5K Waterproof Winch Gen2 uses an internal fuse in the control box, we'd recommend checking that fuse. We offer a replacement solenoid for this winch if need be, it's S/B97495-52 but is not currently on our site. It's $72.99. Thank you for your inquiry.
