4.0 Smooth steady and no heat

Not alot of use of yet, but very nice winch. Seems to never get warm let alone hot during long pulls. Very smooth operation of the clutch. The larger clutch handle is also a step up from prior winches.

Q: Looking for the right winch to use on a 2014 Tundra with the Road Armor Front Stealth Winch Bumper. For the Zeon 8 work? Answer this question

A: Hello KiMAC, The Road Armor Stealth Bumpers require a non-integrated winch. This unit will not fit your bumper. We highly recommend the Smittybilt X2O-10K Waterproof Synthetic Rope Wireless Winch Gen2 with Fairlead S/B98510 for your application. Thank you.

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.
