The XRC Gen 2 Max Front Stubby Bumper has a high degree approach angle and raised corners to maximize ground clearance. The bumper is manufactured from 3/16 cold rolled steel and then robotically welded to the exact specifications. The solid D-ring mounts are welded on the inside and outside (D-rings sold separately). Welds are ground down and smoothed out, then a three stage light texture black powder coat is applied for the ultimate look. The front stinger is 1.75 tubing and has light tabs that can hold up to two 9" lights (lights sold separately). The bumper is winch ready and can carry winches up to a 10,000 lb. rating. The Gen 2 Front Bumper comes with fog light cutouts.

I've seen the XRC Gen2 front bumper on three sites so far. Two of them state it holds a 10,000 pd winch. One states it will hold 12,000.
Which is correct?
Answer this question
It does hold a 12000 lbs winch, I bought the gen 2 bumper with a 12000 smittybilt xrc gen 2 winch from smittybilt, it is a tight fight cause the winch is so big but it does fit without moving vacuum even. Just make sure you put the winch in with all electrical connections before installing bumper. It is next to impossible to get a bigger winch like a 12000 lbs one in there while the bumper is already installed.
