    Description

    Tackle the trails with confidence when you have the Rugged Ridge 8,500 lb Winch riding shotgun. With a potent 5.5 HP series-wound motor cranking 94' of standard or synthetic rope (your choice), Rugged Ridge brings the muscle needed for the toughest recovery operations.

    Rugged Ridge's tough 3-stage planetary gear box turns a super-torquey 172.8:1 gear ratio, so you know this winch is ready to crank. The automatic load-holding drum-brake system keeps your extractions safe and under control. And, your winch is crafted of all-stainless hardware to defy the elements and deliver years of service.

    The heavy-duty, all-weather solenoid box comes complete with a 12' cable remote, and you can mount it over the winch roller or the winch motor. This way your winch can be mounted to most winch bumpers. Rugged Ridge lets you choose between standard rope with a roller fairlead or synthetic rope with a Hawse fairlead. Best yet, Rugged Ridge backs your 8,500 lb winch with a 3-year warranty.

    Pros; Good quality Good price for the size Looks good. Cons; Instructions suck! 1. Has you install winch first then wire it up. Problem is you have to hook up wires to back of winch (hard but possible) then wire to bottom of winch (impossible after installation). Also cable to battery is about 3" to short! 2. After I hooked it all up, plugged in controller and would not work! Had to go online and look up people with similar problems; turns out remote in finicky and you must push and twist.

    good product

    First winch I have owned. Install was easy, fit and finish is excellent. Waiting to use it. Warn whinches are supposed.to be better but at a much higher cost. We are just weekend warriors so this is more than enough power for us. Very happy with our Rugged Ridge winch. People we talked with on the trails with the same winch loved them.
