5.0 Best winch for the money!!

I love this winch and feel even more capable and safe knowing I have another tool in my tool box for recovery. The wireless controller is super easy to use and works everytime!

5.0 Awesome Winch!

Smooth operating winch, blended perfectly with my Bronco! Even hooked up the little style light on top of the winch to one of the extra aux switches equipped in my Black Diamond, looks amazing!

5.0 A+ Customer service

They went above and beyond when the online system shipped from across the country which caused an unnecessary delay, and even helped with an upgrade.

5.0 Love Smittybilt

Works great and fit perfect. Had to make a few custom adjustments but 4wp did not offer a bumper for my 03 Pathfinder. This winch it clean tough and I love the wireless remote. I actually use my vehicle for offroad adventures in tough areas and this thing has come in handy to prevent damage and help out with a few tough areas. Never a hiccup yet and strong power when Buried in mud I love the front led on my pathy it looks like vampire teeth.

5.0 Super nice winch for the $$

My old braided cable winch was in need of replacement. Everyone said to buy the top brand. After looking at previous models and their reviews plus the price point, options, etc I decided on this winch. It arrived in a well-packaged box, plenty of instructions and all the parts necessary to wire it up to my JK. I did use the spacers to raise it up and with them and my mount I errored on caution and purchased longer mounting bolts. The installation was easy, the wireless remote is slick and my first use of the winch was a great success!

Factor 55 hook was from my old winch

Q: Could you please tell me what the blue wire is for and what do I need to connect it to? It's on the Smittybilt X20 GEN3 20K Winch with Synthetic Rope. S/B98810 Answer this question

A: its for the light on the winch, connect it to a switch

A: It’s for the small “decorative” winch light on the front of the winch.

Answered by Brad from Farmington, NM on 06/16/2022

A: On my gladiator, I spliced the blue wire into the orange and blue wire that is connected to my driver side headlight. The orange/blue wire are the daytime running lights so the light on the winch will be on during the day also. Not sure if the color is same on other vehicles

Q: can the remote control be wired as well as be wirless? What happens if the remote is dead? Can you charge it while it is being used? Answer this question

A: Yes, the remote comes with a special USB cable that makes it a wired remote and a charging cable. I charged mine before going to EJS-Moab and did use the wireless remote during the event to tow someone. It says you can charge it from about any USB port though I just connected the cable to the winch and charged it from there.

A: All-new wireless controller with USB connectivity that can be wired to the winch or unplugged for trouble-free wireless operation.

Q: Does this winch comes with winch plate? If not, any recommendations or suggestions? Answer this question

A: This winch and most others do not come with a plate. My bumper already had one as part of it. I assume other bumpers are same. Great winch for the $$ though! Love the wireless remote! (Has a cord too)

Answered by Brad from Farmington, NM on 03/05/2022

A: It does not come with a winch plate. Mine mounted directly to my bumper which is designed to house a winch. If your bumper (or wherever you plan to mount it) doesn’t have the four mounting holes and a place to mount the fairlead, then you’ll need to purchase one that fits your specific application/vehicle.

Q: Are Smittybilt wenches built in the US? Answer this question

A: No sir they are built over seas

Answered by Smittyman69 from compton on 03/25/2022

Q: Can the clutch and gears be clocked around for different angles? Answer this question

A: Yes they can. The manual has specific instructions on this and also includes additional accessories if one wants to offset the electrical controls to one side.
