The best winch for a Jeep Wrangler JL depends on what you are looking for and your overall budget. Winches can cost anywhere from $100 to $2,200 for a high-end winch with extra accessories.
To get you started, here are some of the most popular Jeep Wrangler JL winches:
- Best value: Smittybilt XRC GEN2
- Best overall: WARN 9.5xp Self Recovery
- Most versatile: Superwinch Tiger Shark 11500
Whether you’re looking for something more expensive with all the bells and whistles or just the bare bones, make sure you get one with at least the recommended minimum line-pull rating. Just multiply your Wrangler’s gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) by 1.5 to get the minimum line-pull rating recommended for your Jeep.
When you’re shopping around for a winch read customer reviews. This is a great way to weed out the high-quality winches from the cheaper ones.
