OK guys – you are chomping at the bit to have the ability to self recover. You are dead set on adding the Offroad Animal Hidden Winch mount to your WK2 Grand Cherokee.
But now you wonder, what winch should I get ?
Look no further – here is the winch we recommend.
Why, you ask?
- Because, Warn, c’mon mate ! … and at an affordable price
- It fits with the Offroad Animal WK2 Hidden Winch Mount without requiring to trim the grill so you can keep the sexy lines of your bumper
- 10,000 lb is well matched to the weight of the vehicle. This 10,000 lb winch has the perfect blend of speed and power.
- The gearbox can be clocked to face the clutch lever down. Why is this important ? Well at Offroad Animal we were smart enough to provide an access hole in the winch plate so you can reach up and engage free-spool so you can save your battery and tons of time paying out the line.
- Synthetic – yes there are some advantages to steel wire rope but in totality we believe synthetic is a better option due to its light weight and ease of use.
- 2-in-1 Wired/Wireless Remote: The re-designed remote offers the option to go wireless giving you more versatility and function. Also includes a wired lead when needed for backup or for the old school guys that want it hard wired. Making this winch very user friendly.
