New Series Features Enhanced Design and IP67 Rating for Increased Strength and All- Weather Performance
Rugged Ridge®, a leading manufacturer of high-quality Jeep®, truck and off-road accessories, today launched their new line of Nautic Heavy Duty and Performance winches for Jeeps and various other off-road vehicles.
Building on the success of its current winch offerings, Rugged Ridge implemented a new, innovative X-braced gearbox housing and motor cap that provides increased strength to the winch assembly under load, as well as incorporating new IP67-rated components, including the solenoid, motor and gearbox for flawless performance in even the harshest weather and extreme operating conditions.
Available in either 9,500 or 12,500 pound ratings with a choice of steel cable or synthetic rope, the Nautic Series winches are developed with the serious off-road enthusiast in mind. Durable series wound motors deliver impressive pulling power over a long service life, while a three-stage planetary gearbox with either a 172.8:1 or 265:1 gear ratio (depending on model) ensure that Nautic Series winches will deliver consistent, reliable power on demand. An automatic load holding brake system is internal to the drum for exceptional control, pull after pull.
All Rugged Ridge Nautic Series winches come with a weather-resistant hand controller with 12-foot cable, variable-position solenoid mounting brackets for installation in a variety of bumper configurations and a powder-coated latch hook. Either a roller or Hawse style fairlead are also included, based on the model.
The Rugged Ridge Nautic Series Heavy Duty & Performance winches are backed by an industry-leading five-year limited warranty and will be available online and through select Jeep® and off-road parts and accessories retailers nationwide with a suggested MSRP starting at $460.99.
