This low-profile design is shared by a number of popular Warn winches. For example, the Warn VR10000 is a 10,000-pound winch designed to be used on most SUVs and trucks. It is highly compatible with other Warn products such as mounting systems and protective covers.

Another winch in the VR line, the VR10000-s features a ballistic nylon sleeve over the wire rope that protects it against abrasion and wear. It also features an exclusive brake design to help users get more control when using the winch.

Many Warn winches feature both power-in and power-out, making it easier to deploy and use the wire rope. They generally come as complete systems ready to be used out of the box. Warn's selection of winches has a wide range of features that are ideal for occasional to moderate use.
