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:
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.
