Faster. Stronger. Easiest to Use. The all-new XRC Gen3 Winch by Smittybilt has been designed from the ground up with innovative, user-friendly features and improved power efficiency. The 7.0 horsepower motor boasts an average line speed increase of 12% over its Gen2 predecessor, adding more speed and power with less AMP draw at load. The ergonomic remote controller has a Load Indicator Warning System, so you will always know how much your equipment can handle. Winching in dark conditions is also a breeze with the remote's built-in flashlight. If additional light is needed, a 12-volt power post is located on the control box. Two magnets are built into the controller for easy placement on any metal surface, leaving it out of the way when not needed. A high-viz clutch lever features large lettering, allowing you to see whether your winch is engaged/free spooled at a glance. Stylish body armor can be detached or used to customize your winch to your vehicle. The XRC Gen3 winch is available with 9.5k and 12k load-capacity options, and the COMP Series upgrade includes a synthetic rope and aluminum hawse fairlead. Buy with confidence these winches are backed by a lifetime mechanical warranty, a 5-year electrical warranty, and Smittybilt's legendary customer service.

5.0 A super good looking winch

It is with no doubt a great looking winch. I haven't test it on hard terrain, only have it for a few days, but it looks super nice on my truck and have lot of nice features.

4.0 Great winch

This winch works great. I’ve only had it for a short time but I’ve used it twice after the initial stretch. One thing I will say is it’s hard to unwind. I hope it gets better with use. The winch does have good ground speed I was actually surprised how fast it is the controls work very well and the lights are very useful.

5.0 Great wench.

This wench does everything i need it for. I cut fire wood and it will them up to the road for me to cut and load. Don't care that its made in china though. Gret wench.

5.0 Great buy !

Great winch for the money. Pulled my 12,000 pound dozer out of a creek with a couple snatchblocks. No issues at all.

4.0 Rugged construction but still issues

Construction is rugged/ stout. However, the bolt holes on the winch were 1/8 farther apart than the mounting plate holes which was also made by SmittyBuilt. The winch spool or something had some slack in its assembly not allowing the holes line up exactly so I didn’t mount it and sent it back. Other than that it’s well made it seems, but I never really got to use it.
