Superwinch Talon Rock 98 12v, 1698201

This is one off road winch we love and it's easy to see why: small footprint, light and just the right amount of rope.  You see, all winches lose power as rope is pulled in and the layers add up.  In fact, layers can rob as much as 42% of the winches power.  So, how do you avoid it?  You get yourself a Talon Rock 98.

With just 50 feet of Dyneema rope, you'll almost always be working in the winch's "power zone".  Need more rope?  Do what we do and simply carry an extension.  You'll be on your way to faster pulls, with more power and less clean up time.
