5.0 Great Winch at a Good Price

Added this to my 2019 JLUR on an after market copy of the Mopar Stubby steel bumper. While it's a tight fit on the bumper, it does fit. Installation is straight forward and SB includes color instructions that are easy to follow. On the trail it performs great and I have no issues in the half dozen or so times I have used to help others that got stuck in mud or over a large rock.

4.0 Install on ARB stubby bumper

I put this winch on a 2014 wrangler with an ARB stubby bumper. With the control box mounted in the center I just didn’t have enough between the grill and the control box for the wiring. I had to mount the control box over the motor. Other than that I’m happy with the install.

Tough! Beautiful! Dependable!  TRAILIFE!
5.0 Great winch for our Jeep

Simple install. All cables came the right length for our 2020 jeep wrangler. Great features. Came with everything needed. Had it assembled and installed in about an hour. Came well packaged nothing damaged. Really like the lighted spool and flashlight on remote. The line pull warning on remote is also a great added feature. All its features is why we chose it.

5.0 First Impression

So far I am very happy with this. Easy to Install. The instructions could be a bit better but it is not that complicated. Love the positive battery access point. Haven't had to use the winch yet so no opinion on it yet. I'm glad I went with the synthetic after helping someone else with a synthetic rope winch. Much easier to drag the synthetic rope up a hill.
