The best winch for a Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited really depends on what you’re looking for and your budget. Winches cost anywhere from $100 to over $2,000 for a high-end winch with all the bells and whistles. But those are the extremes; you can generally find a good quality winch in the $600 to $800 price range that’ll meet the recommended minimum line-pull rating for your Jeep.
If you haven’t already, calculate your Wrangler’s recommended minimum line pull rating before you start shopping for winches. Just multiply your Wrangler’s gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) by 1.5 to get this information. Now you’re ready to begin shopping!
To help get you started, we’ve listed a few of the most popular winches for a Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited below:
Reading customer reviews while you browse is another great way to find the right winch for you. Just remember to take the most extreme reviews with a grain of salt.
