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. All Gen2 XRC Winches come backed by a Lifetime Mechanical Warranty and a 5-Year Electrical Warranty.
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 a Warn Rock Crawler front bumper on a 1987 Jeep YJ. What mount do I need for this winch?

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.
Tim from on
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.
