mittybilt xrc winch

Are they any good? They are really cheep and just wondering if you get what you pay for? Should I just save for something better. Man this really is a sickness. I feel the need to fill the hole in my bumper that's not even mounted to my jeep yet lmao

I have yet to use mine but even if it only works once and gets me home then it worked great. Mine was free compliments of Mid Florida Jeep Club & Jeep Beach last year so I'm not out anything if it fails.

Just used mine today at Rausch Creek. Pulled me and another jeep strapped to my rear bumper out of deep mud. He was stuck, I tried pulling him out with the strap first, but could not get enough traction in all the mud, so hooked up the winch and pulled us both.

I have the new Rough Country winch. Figured I'd give it a shot.

So far it pulled me out of a snowbank twice in one day, in the middle of nowhere.

They work and very budget friendly, but are a bit slow. Nothing bad to say about them though.
I'm a Superwinch fan but they do cost more. EPi9.0 great winch for the money.

Have the XRC 10 Comp. My lifetime warranty from 4wd was $60. It's only a few months old, but its pulled my arse out twice just fine.

My buddy and I both run one and they are awesome for the price. They are awesome for the money. At least you can get a few for the price of a Warn, and they have a good warranty.
