New for 2016! Introducing our newest model of winches- The 2nd Generation Tuff Stuff® Classic 12,500 lb. recovery winch! The new entry level Classic Series winch is packed full of new features for making your recovery experience that much better. Tuff Stuff® has now included a wireless remote, safety gloves & a protective winch cover for added protection from the elements for the all new X2 classic winch

With the Tuff Stuff® Classic 12,500 lb. capacity winch, you’ll never be stuck again! Tuff Stuff®’s 12,500Lb capacity, and the heavy internal components make this design extremely durable yet surprisingly affordable.

For those who have never heard of the Tuff Stuff® brand winch- Rest assured, we have over 15,000 units in operation and have been making improvements to our products every year to ensure reliability for the every day user. Our Tuff Stuff® winch has been tested by many major US distributors and has passed every QC test possible- So don’t miss your chance to buy the Tuff Stuff® Classic Winch, far below their retail value.

Tuff stuff® is so confident in their winches, we even offer an extended 3 YEAR WARRANTY at no additional charge ($175 Value).


A top mounted control box is not for everyone and we realize this- As a mater of preference, Tuff Stuff® gives you 2 ways to mount your control box with our included 2+ additional brackets. This is done to help mount your winch control box either on top of the winch drum, or on top of the motor (to the left of the drum). By moving the control box to the side, you clear the way for the cable to stack up unevenly and not damage the winch control box. This feature is both aesthetically pleasing and very functional.


Included with our 2016 model winch is our newest and best safety feature yet- A safety shut off key. This eliminates damage to your winch in case of an electrical short on your vehicle, electrical system or winch. By killing the power to your winch, you’re guaranteed not to have any electrical malfunctions to your winch while in use or not.


New for 2016- We will be using the new “TUFF-TEXTURE” textured black powder coating finish on our 2016 model winches, giving you that rough and tough finish for added longevity.


GEARS-Tuff Stuff® has designed our gear drives with a newer standard of gears with even harder, sharper and more precision cut planetary gear sets. No stripping teeth or auguring out the main drive under intense loads. Feel your clutch engaging when locking into place to alert you that your winch is ready to pull!
LEVER- Tuff Stuff® wanted to give you a more substantial feel when locking your winch into gear- Gone are the days of the off shelf horn style clutch lever design. The all new handle design looks and feels heavy duty, and gives that rugged tough look too!
