Great jeep-sized winch.

Sharp looking winch that completes my JK. I'm very pleased with the control and roller fairlead. It mounted perfectly in my winch mount bumper and operated smoothly under no load. I have not yet used it for a recovery, but feel certain it will perform when needed.

I have a Warn Rock Crawler front bumper on a 1987 Jeep YJ. What mount do I need for this winch?

Asked by Dave from Anaheim, Ca on

Thanks for the inquiry Dave, the Smittybilt XRC-9.5K Waterproof Winch Gen2 part # S/B97495 you'll need part # WAR21390.

Are any additional brackets needed for installation? I looked at Harbor Freights Badland Winch which does require a mounting bracket.

Asked by Tim from on

Hello Tim The S/B97495 does not come with a mounting bracket. Typically the winch would mount to a vehicle specific winch bumper. Smittybilt does also offer a universal winch mount cradle that the winch will mount to and then the cradle will mount into a 2 inch receiver hitch. The winch cradle is part # S/B2811. The 8ft winch quick connector kit is part # S/B35220 and the 24ft kit is S/B35210. Thank You for your question. Jon Snyder 4Wheelparts
