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.
Full featured winch at a great price. Not that I am an expert, and I have only used it for testing/training so I am lucky I haven't really needed it yet. I got this for the front end of a JT Gladiator Rubicon. Mounted it to a Rugged Ridge Spartacus bumper/winch plate so I could keep the OEM frame mounted tow hooks. It is a tight fit but worked out. The controller load indicator is a nice feature because I do not trust my ability to WAG the load. The magnet and LED illumination are also nice, as it the magnet for easy placement when working. I got the 9.5 K winch as that is most of the need at 1.5 times GVW of the JT and I have plenty of gear for a double or triple line pull if needed. I swapped out the cable and roller fairlead for a properly rated synthetic line and hawse, saving about 30 pounds or so. The cost of ta good line and fairlead were below the cost of a similar "comp" model of this winch. So far so good. I put a winch cover on to protect from road dirt and UV so I can't show off the fancy lighted controller box, but I did wire it into the fog light harness to show off if needed. So far, I think this is a great value winch from a reputable company. It fits the middle ground of a high cost Warn and other cheaper brands.

5.0Great winch; great support from 4WP and Smittybilt
Fantastic winch at a great price! I was fine with the wired remote on this model, and was able to easily upgrade to synthetic rope with a new Hawse fairlead. Install was straightforward, but I did run into an issue because I dropped an Oring into a small opening on the motor side. Support from both 4WP and Smittybilt were great regarding my questions, (and I did need a new part) so I am happy to report solid reponse on parts/support.

5.0Easy install awesome product
Easy to install and came well packaged. Make sure you put the control box to the winch then the winch to the plate so you don’t run out of room if you don’t follow the steps.
5.0Great winch for the price
I bought this before I decided on bumpers. I ended up getting the XRC gen1 bumpers and this winch fit perfectly. Easy install for the most part. The rear two bolts are a bit tricky. So far everything works as advertised and I'm happy with my purchase.

5.0Smittybuilt GEN-3 9500 winch
Easy install. I used a high mount Smittybuilt winch plate. Also easy install. The plastic armor covers or not that strong mine was cracked when I received it where the screw hole is. Both the winch and winch plate came from China which I was not very happy about. Somewhere I thought I read the winch was made in the US but place of origin China. What made me buy this was the warranty five years electronic lifetime mechanical. Dust and water proof. It looks awesome Everything worked great out of the box have not tried a recovery yet with the winch.
