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 and the new tie bar light. 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.
Haven’t used it yet on the trail but was fairly easy to install. One of the removable plates came damaged but smittybilt sent a new one overnight. Lights up really nice and can be used as DRL
from Calexico, CA
Winch is pretty amazing! Easy install, with instructions. Although, in the ad it stated I would receive a free aluminum winch shackle. I emailed customer service but they never got back to me after the initial "I'll check". Otherwise I love the winch and the lights. Can't wait to use it, I waited until on a winch until I can get this one.
5.0Great winch pulls hard
It works well and pulls hard. I've used it several times. I love the lighted tie bar and remote. The "day time running light" xrc emblem is a bit lame imho. The fairlead is a cast piece of junk and broke on the second use , not a big deal as i planned on up grading to the 1.5 radius factor 55 fairlead anyway.
5.0Great additions to the Gen 3
The Gen 3 winch is awesome. I really appreciate the light inside to watch the cable wind. The load indicator on the remote is a very nice addition. The engage switch is very easy to turn to engage unlike the last winch we had that we had to force into position. It looks great as well with the metal armor on the outside. The price was also where it needed to be.
