If you’re a serious Jeep off-roader you will know how important having a winch can be. If you or one of your off-road companions should happen to become stuck, you will wish someone had a winch on their vehicle. A winch can help you get of some sticky situations such as being stuck in the mud, or encountering some water that was deeper than it first appeared. A winch can be a life saver when your off-roading. After having to use it one time, you will be glad that you spent the extra money and time installing a winch on your vehicle.

If you choose to install the winch yourself, there are some things that need to be taken care of before and while you are installing your new winch. Below are instructions for installing your winch.
• First you will want to disconnect the negative cable from the battery and then remove the positive cable. This will insure that there is no juice running through your vehicle while you are working.
• The next step is to attach the fairlead to the front of the winch plate using two fairlead bolts with a torque wrench.
• Next attach the winch to the winch plate using four winch plate bolts. The bolts should be long enough to go from the back into the feet of the winch.
• Now you will need to unbolt the four bumper bolts located on your Jeep’s bumper that are used to hold the tow hooks.
• In this step you will require the help of a friend to hold the winch in place on the bumper directly over the four bumper bolt holes.
• While your friend is holding the winch in place, replace the bumper bolts through the holes located on the winch. This will attach the winch to your bumper.
• Now it’s time to wire it for power. Pull the black and red power cables located on the winch through the front grill of your jeep. You will have to run the cables past the radiator on the passenger side of the Jeep.
• Attach the red power cable from the winch onto the red battery post and tighten. Then do the same with the black power cable, attaching it to the black battery post in the same way.
• Once you’ve followed all of the steps you can now reconnect the battery cables and then turn on your Jeep to test your new winch.

If you have followed all of the steps, your winch should be up and ready to use.

XRC 8 Comp Series Winch


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.

All I want for Christmas is…
by yours truly.. 😉

Every body at Jeep meets make fun of me
I have no jeep as they can see
I don’t know who to blame for this catastrophe
So my only wish this Christmas eve
is to be just like them.

All I want for Christmas is a big fat Jeep
with a 6 inch lift,
And 4 Swamper tires

Gee if I could only have
a sweet Hydraulic winch,
Some recovery gear,
a sweet lighting kit.
Gee oh gosh how happy I would be..

So Santa if you could be so kind
To deliver this to me
I’d be as happy as I could be
as you would see.

All I want for Christmas is a big fat jeep
tricked out and ready to play with friends
Gee oh gosh how happy I would be!

🙂
