The newest generation of Smittybilt X2O and XRC winches have been enhanced in almost every area for increased enhanced performance and durability. The new 6.6HP amphibious motor is connected to a 3-stage planetary gear system with revised gear ratios for increased pulling power and lightning fast line speed. The completely waterproof, state-of-the-art 500AMP solenoid has the versatility to be mounted in multiple locations depending on your application needs. Every winch is finished in a rugged UV resistant matte black coating with stainless steel hardware, oversized aluminum cross bars, a four way roller fairlead and a forged hook. You can count on Smittybilt winches to be there every time, in every situation.
Ranging from 9,500lb – 17,500 lb, the workhorse XRC series is a complete recovery system with the muscle and reliability to bail you out of any situation. Every XRC system includes a heavy-duty magnetic remote control. The redesigned solenoid box can mounted in three locations on the winch for maximum versatility. The XRC COMP Series comes complete with all the features and benefits of the original XRC series, except equipped with a stronger synthetic rope and a competition aluminum fairlead. All Gen2 XRC Winches come backed by a Lifetime Mechanical Warranty and a 5-Year Electrical Warranty.
The COMP Series difference If you’re after a winch equipped with a state-of-the-art synthetic rope, look to the XRC COMP Series for the ultimate in pulling power. Triple Mounting Options for the XRC Control Pack Smittybilt understands winches are used for a large variety of applications and has introduced the industry's first Triple Mounting Solution for the control pack. You now have the option of moving the control pack to allow increased airflow to the radiator or gain easier access to the control plug.
I have had this for a couple years. Used it many times on self-recovery and helping others. Warranty is great. Cut rope once, my fault, replaced no questions. Have had a pin break in controller twice now. Beware: moisture gets in controller plug socket making pins weak. Still covered under warranty, so not a big deal.

Great product, good price for being waterproof. Love how you can mount the control box in different configurations

I have not needed this on the trail as of yet so only gave it 4 stars. All wiring was thick and sealed to make it waterproof. I was missing some bolts but was able to grab some at the local hardware store. So far great winch for the price. Please keep in mind I am in no way a hardcore rockcrawler.

Defective Instruction- Caution!
The glossy "Installation Manual" was entirely missing the mounting instructions, and is essentially useless from cover to cover. Also not covered: rope loading procedures. After installing front and rear SRC bumpers and this winch over the weekend, i now understand that Smittybilt just does not include useful information in their installation and user guides.
Just installed on an SRC bumper. Fortunately, I was warned by the vendor to mount the winch prior to mounting the bumper. It is not possible to install this on an SRC bumper that is mounted on a Jeep. Unforunately, I was not warned to connect all of the wires prior to mounting the unit. If you mount this to a bumper like mine and don't have all of the wires connected, be prpared to re-do some work.
Overall, it seems like a fair piece of equipment for the price.

Winch lead did not fit the ARB Bumper
I did not test the winch because the winch lead was too low for the opening on my bumper when installed and the winch appeared previously used with scratches and rust. I do not know how it functions, but I am disappointed with the product I received. Fortunately I received good customer service from 4wheelparts and I was able to return the item for a full refund.

Does the hawse fairlead bolt directly to the winch on the synthetic model winch or does it need a separate winch mounting plate.
