Every XRC winch features a Series Wound 6.6 HP motor and a 3-Stage Planetary Gear System with revised gear ratios for increased pulling power and lightning-fast line speeds. Every winch is finished in a rugged UV-Resistant matte black coating with stainless steel hardware and oversized aluminum crossbars to provide you with a great looking system that will last you a lifetime. Every XRC winch includes a heavy duty winch controller, four-way roller fairlead, forged steel tow hook, and a redesigned solenoid box that can be mounted in 3 different positions for maximum versatility. If you're looking for a winch equipped with a synthetic winch rope, look to the XRC Comp Series for the ultimate in pulling power and performance. A Smittybilt XRC winch is a complete recovery system with the muscle and reliability to bail you out of any situation. Winch includes a Lifetime Mechanical Warranty and 3 Year Electrical Warranty.

Comments about SmittybiltXRC-9.5K Winch Synthetic Rope Gen2, With Aluminum Fairlead:

The glossy "Installation Manual" was entirely missing the mounting instructions, and is essentially useless from cover to cover. Also not covered: rope loading procedures. After installing front and rear SRC bumpers and this winch over the weekend, i now understand that Smittybilt just does not include useful information in their installation and user guides. Just installed on an SRC bumper. Fort

Comments about SmittybiltXRC-9.5K Winch Synthetic Rope Gen2, With Aluminum Fairlead:

I have not needed this on the trail as of yet so only gave it 4 stars. All wiring was thick and sealed to make it waterproof. I was missing some bolts but was able to grab some at the local hardware store. So far great winch for the price. Please keep in mind I am in no way a hardcore rockcrawler.

 

Winch lead did not fit the ARB Bumper

Comments about SmittybiltXRC-9.5K Winch Synthetic Rope Gen2, With Aluminum Fairlead:

I did not test the winch because the winch lead was too low for the opening on my bumper when installed and the winch appeared previously used with scratches and rust. I do not know how it functions, but I am disappointed with the product I received. Fortunately I received good customer service from 4wheelparts and I was able to return the item for a full refund.
