5.0 Smittybuilt replacement remote for XRC winches

I purchased a Jeep Wrangler which came with a brand new smittybuilt XRC winch. The previous owner lost the remote. I was happy to find out smittybuilt has available a replacement remote. Now thanks to 4 wheel parts I’m up and running. The remote is made very well, high quality, is very responsive, runs the winch very well. I love the smittybuilt products and 4 wheel parts sells a lot of smittybuilt, so 4 wheel parts is the first one I look at when I want something for my Jeep. The staff is very professional, knowledgeable, and always willing to help. Thank you 4 wheel parts

Purchased from 4 Wheel Parts. Because the item was backordered they kept me abreast of the time line and when the product was finally on the way. The part was a perfect fit and came in a well packaged box.
