Does Not Fit As Described

the cover will not cover winch and fairlead as it shows..the holding straps are a joke..after you put it on and it gets wet a few times the straps are so flimsy they will break trying to put it back on...not worth the time...a trash bag and duct tape would work better..

Great Inexpensive Way To Save Your Winch

Be sure to get the straps on the product tied well under the winch. It would work better if they were snaps for quick attachment and release. If you don't use your winch very much this is great.

Winch cover

the straps that come with it make no sense. I took them off and used small bungie cords. It could be a little bigger and would cover better

Works Fine!

For the price, this cover is just fine. I have had it about 3 weeks. I may spray it with Scotchgard or similar. I was a little leery after seeing some reviews that were not too favorable. I figure if I get a few years out of this it has more than paid for itself. I view this item as a sacrificial cover to help my winch last longer :) I installed it on the XRC8.

Cheap with big benefits

This cover does a lot to protect the winch from sun and water damage. It only lasts about 2 years before it disintegrates. [$] every 2 years is worth it to protect my winch

bulky and ugly

The cover looks like a duffel bag is really bulky and the drawstrings dont work

Will not fit

Nice cover but wasn't aware that it would not fit my winch with the control module mounted in the center top position. I will have to move my control module to the left side to lower it. Would have been nice to know before I ordered it.

Asked by rick from granger on

Rick, these covers were designed for the Smittybilt winch line but if your winch fits with in these dimensions 6 inches wide x 10 inches tall x 22 inches long i don't see why it wouldn't fit. thank you for your question.

how does this cover install? no instructions. the ties seem strange

Asked by JEEPGIRL from FL on

JeepGirl- Thanks for asking. The Smittybilt Cover slides over the winch and ties down. How you tie it down depends on how the winch is mounted and how you can run the tie downs.
