Smittybilt 97380 X20-8 8,000 lbs Winch
The X2O 8 8,000 lb winch by Smittybilt is perfect for off-roading in wet conditions thanks to the completely sealed engine and waterproof solenoid; this is perfect if you plan on off roading in the snow or through wet, marshy areas. The winch comes with 100 feet of synthetic rope made from marine-grade stainless steel manufactured to resist pitting corrosion (the type that leads to holes in the metal). This contributes to the winches durability which is great if you plan on using it frequently using it in wet conditions. I also liked that this winch is only 88 pounds, making it considerably lighter than other options out there. The biggest downside is this model is only rated to pull up to 8,000 pounds.
