Winches are essential if you plan on tackling more challenging trails and terrains. Off-roaders have been using winches since the dawn of four-wheeling to traverse treacherous terrains, recover lost vehicles, or haul heavy loads up slopes. Here are some key things you should remember as you shop for suitable winches.
Three types of winches are available - hydraulic, drums, and electric. Hydraulic winches are arguably the strongest, with many capacities for hauling heavy loads. Drum winches have an integrated brake system that allows you to control the speed at which your vehicle is pulled out or spooled onto the drum. Electric winches use a motor to pull or spool the line, and can be controlled by a remote control. Drum winches can have electric motors too.
The size of your winch should match the size and weight of your vehicle. The heavier the load you plan on hauling, the stronger the winch needs to be. We offer sizes from 6500 lbs up to 13000 lbs so that you can find the perfect winch for your Bronco Sport.
Whether installing a winch on your own or having it professionally installed, ensure all the components are securely and correctly mounted for proper operation. Your local Ford dealership can provide installation services if needed or you can get installation help from us at Everything Bronco Aftermarket.
The quality of the winch you choose is important. We only offer top-of-the-line products from reputable brands, so you know you're getting a reliable and durable product that will last many years.
It's important to find a winch with suitable cable material. Some popular materials used for winch cables include synthetic rope, steel cable, and coated wire. Each type has pros and cons, so it's important to research before deciding which one is best for you. We recommend synthetic cables.
Ensure to check out the safety features included with your winch. Many popular models have features like automatic brakes, safety clutches, and anti-reverse mechanisms. These features can help keep you safe while winching, so ensuring your chosen model has them is essential. The price of a winch will vary depending on the size, type, and brand.
With the proper winch, you'll be able to conquer any obstacle in your path and make sure you never get stuck on the trail again! Shop our selection of durable winches for your Ford Bronco Sport now.
