Product Summary

The WARN® VR family of 12V DC winches are engineered and tested by WARN to outperform and outlast the competition in light truck, trailer, and light industrial applications. The VR is driven by a powerful motor designed specifically for winching and features a waterproof Albright contactor for excellent electrical reliability. An all-metal tie plate system adds structural rigidity and reduces noise while a patented cone brake system holds the full rated load, even when powering out. All VR winches are prewired and ready for install, backed by a new industry-leading warranty.
