Comments: Works great and is more affordable than all other brands. Will last a long time unless you use it for rock crawling but if you just trail ride you should not have any problems with it.

SmittyBilt XRC 8 Winch
Price: $299.99
Pros: Good looking black & silver motif, great deal for $299
Cons: LAME instructions, but there's a supplement out by Smittybilt
Recommended? Yes

Comments: MAKE SURE you get the second generation of this winch with the 5.5hp series wound motor NOT the 4.1hp magnetic motor.

The first generation XRC-8 was below average with its 4.1 hp magentic motor. The newer version is MUCH better. The instructions are TERRIBLE and very vague. Wish the cable end had a metal reinforced eye instead of plain cable and hook. If your winch doesn't come with the "mounting supplement" instruction sheet, write to Smittybilt and ask for them to email you one. It makes it much easier to deal with.
