I have had my smitty winch for over a year and just got a brand new one in the mail due to some warranty work. I took the entire winch apart via smittybuilt guidance and their was absolutely no water in the whinch and I go mudding all the time and didn't have no cover or nothing on it. The only thing that rust was 1 nut that held wire B on the left side of the winch. So my advice unless you are fording water over your bumper daily for extended periods I wouldn't waste the 200.00 on it buy a 20.00cover if you really want. The problem with my winch was not water FYI and smittybuilt has awesome customer service ask for RAY.
