The Rugged Ridge Trekker Series of electric recovery winches offer today’s off-road enthusiast trail-proven reliability and impressive power, with the quality and features that ravage the competition. The brawn behind the Trekker Series lineup is the heavy duty 5.6 / 6.6 series-wound motor that delivers consistent pull strength through a bulletproof 3-stage planetary drive gear. A 212:1 gear ratio means you see quicker line speeds, getting you back to wheeling in record time. And since the real world is where these winches really shine, we equipped them to survive in the worst conditions imaginable. With an IP-68 waterproof rating, they are practically impervious to all the water, dirt and sand that leaves lesser winches in a billow of smoke. Trekker Series Winches are available with a handy wireless remote and 26-meter synthetic line, while standard winch models include a traditional steel cable and a weatherproof wired remote, but can be easily upgraded for wireless control with the Trekker Wireless Remote Kit 15103.36. Best of all, we back every one with an industry-leading five year limited warranty.
