Any avid off-roading enthusiast knows having a good electric or hydraulic winch will pay for its self a million times over. Adding a winch bumper to your truck or custom Jeep is almost a no-brainer if you actually use your truck for work or play and not just grabbing groceries. Another common use for winches is with enclosed trailers.
Warn and Smittybilt winches are by far the most popular winches on the market, however, there are some really nice alternatives like Ramsey, Engo and Warrior winches that can do the same job and most times for less. There are some other cheaper models on the market like the Badlands winches that we only recommend for trailers and not on your truck. Nothing is worst than a winch that can’t winch right!
We recommend the Smittybilt GEN2 X20 & XRC. With heavy-duty features for enhanced performance these winches offer the highest torque in the industry and are connected to a 3-stage Planetary Gear System for increased pulling power and line speed. The X20 GEN2 Series features an integrated wireless remote control for ease of use and maximum versatility.
