Muscle your way out of any situation with the Rugged Ridge 10,500 lb Winch. With a Powerful 6.6 HP series-wound motor tugging on 94’ of standard wire or synthetic rope (your choice), Rugged Ridge delivers the backup you need for the toughest off-road situations.
Rugged Ridge’s tough 3-stage planetary gear box boasts a 218:1 gear ratio that’s just raring to start pulling. Plus, the automatic load-holding drum-brake system keeps you safe and sound during the most precarious recovery operations. And, the all-stainless hardware means your winch is designed for years of service.
The heavy-duty, all-weather solenoid box includes a 12’ cable remote and can be mounted over the winch roller or 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 10,500 lb winch with a 3-year warranty.

After much research (maybe too much) I finally decided on the Rugged Ridge 10K as it compares exactly to a model of Warn winch for rock crawling. And at a much lower price with what seems to be the same quality if not better! Thanks, Oceankyaker4x4

I had a warn 8k winch and it worked great. After installing and using this winch I really like it. For the money it cannot be beat. It works very strong and does not have a problem pulling my 1/2 ton GMC Z71 around.
