    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.

    Winch is just "So-So"

    I bought two of these to install on two different Jeep Wranglers. I also have a Warn M-8000 that I installed on my third Wrangler. The Warn winch is considerably higher quality than the Rugged Ridge, but was twice the price. Finish on both Rugged Ridge winches had damage to the affixed stickers which depleted from the overall appearance. The remote control plug in is flimsy and will most likely not stand up to much use. The control box mounting bracket is cheap and flimsy.
