What is a Winch & Why Do You Need One?

Winches are one of the most important upgrades you can add to your truck, especially if you enjoy adventuring off the beaten path. While there are many different reasons to install a winch on your vehicle, the most common reason is so that you can explore the beautiful outdoors with a peace of mind. If you enjoy off-roading your vehicle, you've most likely had your day cut short by getting stuck in mud or sand. Owning a Winch is a quick solution to that problem and will allow you to quickly get back to having fun with family and friends. Even though some vehicle owners feel that they would never need to use their Winch, that one time they do, it will pay for itself many times over.

It's important to remember that when shopping for a Winch, you must buy one that is strong enough to pull your vehicle. Multiply the GVWR by 1.5 to determine how large of a winch is needed. Please keep in mind that trying to pull vehicles heavier than what your Winch is rated at is considered extremely dangerous.
