The fit and finish is superb. I tested it out the first day and it dragged my Jeep across the dirt, no problem. For the price, I don't think you'll find a better winch.

 

love it

well its saved me a few times been real happy so far. the only problem so far is the cover for the remote plug needs to be more waterproof. the pins corroded on mine and one broke off but I contacted smittybilt on Monday and they sent me a new one on thursday

 

So far so good.

Comments about SmittybiltXRC-9.5K Waterproof Winch Gen2:

Used it twice at the beach last week. Pulled a fairly good sized SUV out of not so deep sand pretty quick. Pulled a smaller 4x4 truck out of much deeper sand the next day, was harder, but the sand was really deep and they were really stuck. location was not ideal, had a hard time getting the right angle because we were on the edge of a busy road. Winch performed beautifully though.

 

Looks great and performs even better

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!

Comments about SmittybiltXRC-9.5K Waterproof Winch Gen2:

I had a smittybilt xrc8 previously and was a great winch, only had one minor issue with it. But I wanted to upgrade to the gen2 for more pulling power and the waterproof qualities because I spend a lot of time in water. So far so good on the new xrc9.5, it works very well, quicker line retrieval, more power, very reliable, and you can't beat the price.

Comments about SmittybiltXRC-9.5K Waterproof Winch Gen2:

This is a great winch for the cost. I used it the day after I installed it at my local off road park and it worked wonderfully. The only downside I see so far is the weight of the winch. Other than that, it's great!

I have had many winches in the past. Figured I would update to the new 9500 gen 2. That's was bad idea on my part. I am now going on my 4th winch in since September. The first winch the ground bolt came off as I was removing the nut with my fingers. The second winch on the first use. I went to use it to recover a friend and had no connection to the controls. When looking at the pins I found tha
