I have a Smittybilt XRC9500 in the factory steel bumper. I went as light weight as possible (syn rope version = 46lbs) because I knew I would only use it rarely. Turns out I've used it more than the winches on my JK and YJ combined in just the last year! It has run perfectly and has done multiple back to back tough pulls, yanking fellow Jeep club members' Jeeps up some very difficult terrain and it didn't appear to break a sweat doing it. It's been a great winch, so far!
