The Smittybilt X2O Winches have been enhanced in almost every area for increased performance and trouble free operation. Every X2O winch features a Series Wound 6.6 HP motor that is completely sealed, as well as a 3-Stage Planetary Gear System. The X2O winch features a completely waterproof 500 AMP solenoid pack that can be mounted in 2 different locations, depending on your application needs. They also include a new controller that can be wired to the winch or unplugged for trouble-free wireless operation. The X2O also features optimized gear ratios that deliver lightning-fast line speeds. If you're looking for something more versatile, check out the X2O Comp Series, which includes all of the features and benefits of the original series, and adds a synthetic winch rope. And finally, all X2O winches are covered by the Smittybilt Lifetime Warranty, providing peace of mind as well as unparalleled performance. With all of these features, you can count on the X2O winch to be there every time, in every situation.

If the 10 Commandments of Off-Roading existed, they'd probably include “Thou shalt never hit the trails without a winch.” Powering over super-rocky ground, pulling yourself out of a tight spot or helping out another rider – these tasks are only possible with a powerful recovery winch. Fortunately, 4 Wheel Parts has exactly what you need. We stock Smittybilt X20 winches plus hundreds of other winch models, accessories and mounting gear at everyday low prices. So when it's time to gear up, 4 Wheel Parts is your best destination.

5.0 You can’t go wrong with this one! Awesome quality!

Great Winch, I was planning to buy the Evo10 for my 2021 Jeep Gladiator stock Steel bumper, but I’m glad I chose this one, way cheaper price and same or better quality!

5.0 Well worth the money.

Bought this during the Christmas sale. Price could not be beat. I have had this model on another Jeep for 7 years without any issues. Pulls strong, quick, and looks good.

2.0 Seems like a good winch, but 4WheelParts???

Winch is nice and install was pretty easy, But the hook and rope sleave are damaged. Sleave had a cut in it and hook was all chipped up. Wrote to 4wheel parts about it, but no response from them. Was planning on buying steel bumpers and inner fenders from them, but waiting to see if I ever here anything from them to fix this problem first.

Hook and Sleeve Damage
5.0 Jeep winch

Just got this winch installed on my new bumper. Looks great on my Gladiator and it works great. I really like the remote controller. Just need to find a way to keep hook from scratching the bumper.

5.0 Great winch and easy to install and use

Picked up the X20 (12k capacity) with synthetic rope for my 2500 HD long bed after getting stuck in the snow and having to be winched out (#neveragain). Mounted on a cradle so I could use from the front or rear. Finally got a chance to use this past weekend when we found a 2WD Ram truck and a Ram TRX both stuck in the sand at Lake Isabella. Winch pulled both out with no problem, including a Jeep that had tried to pull out the TRX with a kinetic rope. The X20 is easy to use, power to spare and is worth every penny Was a little concerned about having it mounted on a cradle called hard mounted but it wasn’t an issue. Very happy with the purchase and the setup. Highly recommend this winch!

5.0 Smittybilt X2O GEN2 winch

Great winch this is my second one. Never failed works great lots of extras. Love the wireless controller.

Best winch around.
4.0 Not Smittybilt's fault it didn't fit.

Working good off the bat. Have not used on the trail yet. Installed in a Rugged Ridge Arcus bumper and it did not fit with the solenoids on top. It barely fits with the solenoid on the the side. And I had to open the solenoid box up and grind down some molding for the mount to work. All and all, it's fine. Looking and working good once done.

Looks good and fits... tightly
Just barely fits
Had to Dremel this off
Mount screw pushes brackets out

Q: Which wench will bolt onto my factory metal bumper on a JL Rubicon? I really like the Smitty lit wench.  Is there a bumper that will work with this wench and still let me use the factory running lights.   Answer this question

A: I use the rugged ridge hd stubby bumper with smittybilt winch, the factory fog lights work with as well.

Answered by David from Henderson, KY on 03/01/2021

A: It will not bolt directly onto the steel bumper. You must purchase a winch mounting plate for a JL.

Answered by ScottB from Pensacola on 02/28/2021

Q: I’m buying a weld kit bumper that says it’s compatible with any winch with a removable solenoid.  I’m assuming that is the case with this winch, is that correct?  The bumper is made by Coastal Off-road for a Lexus GX 470. Answer this question

A: Yes. It comes separate from the actual winch. You could easily mount this somewhere else. Might I add. Get rid of the stock hook. And get a bigger one with more room to hold straps. 

Answered by Jeep jk 07 from Indiana on 12/02/2020

A: We're not familiar with that brand bumpers. If it has standard winch mount locations, it will fit.

Q: How do I mount this to a 1998 TJ with Warn front bumper? Answer this question

A: Hey Paul, Thanks for reaching out we are not sure which bumper you have. But if your bumper is winch compatible it should have a mount for the winch with a fair lead opening.
