Winches for Trucks, Jeeps, SUVs, and more!
No matter the job, winches are a worthwhile addition to your arsenal of tools and gear. These convenient accessories make moving heavy loads a breeze, whether that be unsticking a Jeep on the trail, loading an inoperable car onto a trailer, or moving heavy cargo around a shop or ranch.
At RealTruck, we offer a wide selection of winches for various jobs and applications, including different rope materials, mounting styles, weight ratings, and more! Our catalog features winches for all tasks, including heavy-duty industrial-grade work and recreational, like off-road pickups, light-duty Jeeps and SUVs, ATVs / UTVs, and boating.
Our winch capacities range from under 2,000 to over 30,000 pounds, ensuring we carry the proper winch for your needs. We offer everything necessary to install and operate a winch on your vehicle or trailer, including mounts, winch lines, and accessories like snatch blocks, shackles, line dampeners, and more.
Winches come in several shapes and sizes depending on their desired application. Some of the most notable variances include:
Power Source: Winches come in AC and DC power configurations, depending on the product’s planned usage. AC power sources are ideal for home or workplace installations while DC power sources are used in mobile applications, such as mounting to a vehicle or trailer that derives power from a 12V battery.
Hard-Mounted Vs. Portable: Winches come in both hard-mounted and portable configurations. Hard-mounted winches are ideal for dedicated trail rigs, overlanders, and trailers, whereas portable winches are often used on job sites and in shops where one winch may have multiple uses.
Electric Vs. Hydraulic: Winches come in hydraulic and electric configurations; however, electric is the most commonly used of the two. Electric winches employ an electric motor for instant torque, compact size, and simple installation. Hydraulic winches are typically used in industrial applications due to their enhanced speed. Still, they also require a standalone hydraulic system, making for a more complex installation and a greater opportunity for failure.
Q: What size winch do I need?
A: As a rule of thumb, you should select a winch with a maximum load rating of 1.5X your vehicle’s GVWR, or gross vehicle weight. That means the weight of the vehicle, its maximum passengers, a full tank of gas, and the maximum payload.
