The next generation of winches for trucks, Jeeps, and SUVs is here, and it's called ZEON. The WARN ZEON is a design masterpiece with innovative features and new levels of reliability and performance. ZEON isn't just a new winch. It's winching evolved.
STYLING: Totally new and unique exterior styling and symmetrical design give this winch a look that is advanced, capable and strong. The next generation in truck/SUV winches. VERSATILITY: Convertible control pack can be attached to the winch or remotely mounted, allowing for various winch mounting options and looks. (ZEON Control Pack Relocation kit required) QUIET: New-design planetary gear train and series-wound motor deliver fast, quiet, and reliable pulling power. Tough and capable enough to tackle anything you will. DURABLE: Satin-black powder-coated finish with stainless steel fasteners and clutch lever looks great and inhibits corrosion. Improved IP68 winch sealing to keep the elements out. INNOVATIVE: Large diameter winch drum reduces rope wear, is light weight, and has an integrated rope anchor for easy rope installation.
WARN ZEON: The new face of winching. ZEON showcases a new era for WARN winches, and you have never seen anything like this before. ZEON features a symmetrical design that is modern yet rugged and looks unlike any other winch on the market. The black satin finish and stainless steel hardware resist corrosion and look great; a robust aluminum housing adds strength and durability. The innovative convertible control pack can be mounted separately from the winch or it can remain attached for an integrated look. Backing up the new exterior design is a host of new premium internal components. The new motor and three-stage planetary gear train offer outstanding power and reliability, plus smooth, quiet operation. The motor resides in an all-new housing that also does away with exposed wires. ZEON winches feature IP68 sealing to keep the elements out and improve reliability, and the contactor control provides extreme weather resistance. Whether you choose wire rope or Spydura synthetic line, ZEON winches have an all-new drum that helps to dissipate heat and reduce weight. This drum also has an integrated rope anchor for easy rope installation. Other features include an easy-throw stainless-steel clutch lever; an automatic mechanical brake that will hold the full rated load and provide excellent control while winching; and an ultra-durable rubberized corded remote with a 12' (3.7m) lead. Like all WARN truck and SUV winches, ZEON comes with a limited lifetime warranty on mechanical parts, and a one-year warranty on electrical components (U.S. and Canada only) backed by a global service network.
Negative battery cable may be too short. Spooling the 12k rope will be impossible for any person to pull the cable through the hole.Suggestion would be to hook the cable to 8 feet of wire and then attach the wire to another vehicle and pull it through rather easily. otherwise, installation was easy. have not used it in a recovery situation yet,however it did pull my 8k truck up a hill when initially stretching the rope.

Great Winch/Difficult Install
If you are installing this on a Westin HDX grille guard and winch tray, be advised it will not fit unless you do extensive re drilling of the mounting holes. And, if you are installing the westin tow hooks, you will also need to re drill the mounting holes--all of them

I just got this winch intalled on my SRC bumper. The ONLY problem I had installing it was: The bumper plate that you attach your winch bumper to MUST be trimmed down atleast an inch on both sides in order for this winch to install. The zeon is a much longer winch than other winches so I hear so just be ready, unless your winch bumper plate sits up above the plates. After that install was super easy

Very good looking and great working winch. I'd say its the best winch on the market.

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.

Warn Zeon 10-S winch with Syn. rope
I use the winch for vehicle recovery, whenever I get my truck stuck while wheelin' off-road. I installed the winch recently and have used it a couple times already. The significant weight savings over the same model with wire rope is a plus when your truck is already fairly heavy. It seemed to have an easy time with my 6300+lb. truck(with me inside it). The winch also looks sharp. I will continue paying close attention to the performance of the winch. So far so good.

Power, styling, quiet, fast and reliable. These are the things that best describe the warn zeon12 winch. I bought one for my one ton blazer that I off road and it's been the best upgrade so far. Love it! Shipping was fast and easy too.
Looking for the right winch to use on a 2014 Tundra with the Road Armor Front Stealth Winch Bumper. For the Zeon 8 work?
KiMAC from on
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.
I WANT TO KNOW WHAT IS REQUIRED TO MOUNT THIS WINCH TO MY 2015 JEEP WRANGLER SPORT'S ORIGINAL BUMPER?
Tom from Charlotte, NC on
You will need either a winch bumper or we offer the Smittybilt Winch Plate Part Number: S/B2804. Thank you.

Yes, the Warn ZEON 12 Recovery Winch will fit 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.
