U will not be disappointed

I used it to pull my kubota L3000DT 4x4 tractor with a backhoe which I had a blown hydraulic line buried to its belly tied my truck off to a tree it snatched the tractor out without any strain!!!!!

anything else is just a name

i installed this on my 08 Jeep Wrangler and pulled out a full size dodge pickup buried in 2 feet of thick mud with no snatch block. it took a bit cause it sucked my battery life but i loved it! more than impressed!

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.
