The Bronco is undeniably one of the most popular off-road vehicles on the market, and for a good reason. With its 4x4 capabilities and rugged design, the Bronco is more than capable of tackling any terrain. But when the going gets tough, you need a winch. Make sure you've got a winch on board before you head out on your next off-road adventure. And know these tips below.
The first thing you should consider is the type of winch you want. There are two main types – electric and hydraulic winches. Both are great; they'll answer you anytime you call for the winch power, but they have their pros and cons.
The winch's capacity indicates how much weight it can safely pull up. You should always choose a winch with a higher capacity than the weight of your Bronco. As a rule of thumb, the winch's capacity should be 50% more than the vehicle's weight.
Next, you need to consider the winch's cable material. Most modern cables use steel or synthetic materials, though some still use a rope. The winch cable you choose will depend on your preferences and the terrain you'll be driving through. If you're not comfortable with installing the winch directly to your factory bumper, you can opt for a winch bumper, which is sturdier but pricier.
