    Winch decision

    I'm trying to figure out what winch to go with. I've been looking at the warn Zeon platinum 10 s with the wireless remote. Do these have any problems with the wireless or would it be better to just get the wired controller.

    I wouldn't spend money on Platinum or wireless controller. Start with wired, you can always add wireless later if deemed necessary.

    Zeon-S, can always add wireless later, if you go that route you will still have wired if say your battery dies on the remote.

    Initially they had a few problems. I wouldn't go with the wireless. One more thing to go wrong, should you actually need the winch.

    I have Zeon 10 and put a synthetic line on it from masterpull. I like the lower profile design. Have used it several times and no complaints.
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    If you want low profile and new flatter design the Zeon is it. If you the ultimate series that's faster then the Cti is the one.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
