Most people never invest in a winch, and if they do, it’s not a good quality one. It’s not because they are foolish or cheap. It’s because they don’t see the need to have a winch on their Jeep. After all, if you get stuck in a ditch you can just call a tow truck to get you back out, right?
Not always. If you are traveling in a very rural area and accidentally end up in a ditch or stuck in the mud, it could easily be hours before help can come. It’s also possible that you could be in an area where cell phone coverage is spotty at best. In this case, you may not be able to call a tow truck and would have to walk to the nearest town or house to find a phone to use, a feat that could prove to be dangerous. A winch would allow you to tie the rope around a tree or sturdy telephone pole and simply pull the Jeep out yourself.
Same thing if you are off road a lot. You can easily find yourself in trouble and needing to have your Jeep pulled out of a tight spot. A winch would allow you to do just that without having to rely on someone else. If you’re out with friends, you can even pull your friends back onto the road if they end up being the ones in trouble.
Every XRC 8 winch has a Planetary Gear System with 172.8:1 gear ration and a 5.5 HP Series Wound Motor. The line has a rating of 8,000 pounds and you won’t get any kinks, curls, or wire splinters from this rope. It’s designed to prevent slipping and overheating and installs without a hassle. It even comes with a replaceable hook and offers features and toughness that you need in a winch at a price that is affordable and is a great value for anyone who wants a winch.
