The all new Smittybilt X2O 8 8,000 lb winch was developed for the hard core off roader that demands only the best. The X2O winch features our series wound amphibious technology which completely seals the 5.5 series wound motor as well as the three stage planetary gear system. It has an oversized, completely waterproof, state of the art 500-AMP solenoid that has the versatility to be mounted over the winch motor or winch cable. The control handle and hardware are manufactured out of marine grade stainless steel which will give a lifetime of service. Heavy duty rubberized remote control with a front end magnet which makes locating and controlling the hand held remote easier than ever. The new X2O 8 performance is as good as it gets. Includes a brushed finish hawse fairlead.

Comments about Smittybilt X2O Comp Series, 8,000 lb. Amphibious Winch:

So far i've done some hard pulls and it has never failed.. When installing the rope cable the starting screw was soft and stripped out. Other than that i've had no problems. When free spooling line the gear box makes backlash noises.. probably normal, maybe not. When under load it all sounds the same..

    Works great. Would like to see better instructions on how to install rope onto spool from scratch. Other than that works well.
