This is from 4wheelparts. Looks good... what am I missing? Seems too cheap.

My guess is the XRC gen 3 winch is out now so the X20 is going to be phased out

Stupid question: how do you make this fit an OE Rubicon bumper?

I paid $400 a few years ago for the same winch. Seems like the sale price.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the XRC isn't as water proof as the X20 series??? The Gen 3 X20 hasn't been released yet...

I guess it wasn't on sale after all. It would not put it in my cart for that price when it was showing the sale price and now its listed at regular price. I've already got one, but was looking to get one for someone else.

Bummer! But the Warn VR EVO 10S is down to $670, I'll probably go that route since it's not that much more.

Not flaming, but I will warn you that there have been some SERIOUS issues with waterproof quality controls with these winches. A local Jeeper went through two in 4 months that had water inside and another that had failed completely. Just a heads up.

The gen 3 shows as in stock at my local 4 wheel parts but you are correct, the XRC gen 3 is IP67 rated and the X2O are IP68 rated. So the gen 3 is rated to be submerged in no more than 1 meter of water for no more than 30 minutes.
The X2O is rated for continuous submersion but I could not find depth info.
Either way, Im hoping for more winch deals out there on black Friday.

I ran into the same thing. I am going to swing by the local 4WP in the morning just in case its some kind of in person door buster thing. I'd rather a Warn, but man that price puts it nearly $300 less than sale priced similar Warn.
