3.0 X20 GEN3 winch

Didn't come with an owner's manual supposed to be wireless but the only thing wireless is a little light that's on the control handle. The winch looks okay

5.0 Smitty Built gen 3 X20 12k winch rocks

I mounted this winch on a 2020 Jeep Rubicon JL with an American Trail Products winch plate. It fit perfectly with no modification. The winch has a very low profile and sleek armored look. It is enclosed enough to where I cannot see the synthetic line when looking at the winch from the front or top without trying to see through the fairlead. The wireless remote is light weight but seems well built. I have not had an opportunity to pull with the winch yet but based on visual looks and quality feel of the winch it surpasses my expectations.
