This thing's a Beast!Highly Recommended!

I thought at first, that the 16.5 may be a little overkill... But it's definately better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it. Highly recommended... This thing is a Beast.

Look for an alternative...

I purchased this winch and hidden bumper kit because I thought Warn was the best of the best. I was dissapointed when the extension wire for the winch was not in the box. [...] I contacted Warn. A month later I am still waiting for the extension to arrive. But hey, it almost looks cool. Except for the rubber band holding the wire rope in place.

what does thermometric self recovery mean

Asked by gordo from texas on

Gordo, The Warn 16.5ti Thermometric Self-Recovery Winch comes with a remote that has an led indicator that will tell you when the winch starts to get too hot. Self recovery just means that you can winch yourself out without any assistance.

In 1948, Arthur Warn founded Warn Industries to construct locking hubs for surplus World War II Jeeps. Ten years later, the Warn winch was manufactured to fill the need for a reliable recovery tool to aid off-roaders stuck in challenging situations. Since then, Warn has grown to offer a wide range of gear with the hallmarks of durability and affordability. 1988 spawned the aftermarket industry's first ATV winch and today their PowerSports line of winches ranks among the most esteemed in the industry and jeepers call on Warn for electric, hydraulic and severe duty components that get the job done.
