Bogged Down? No Problem with the Overland Vehicle Systems S.C.A.R. Winch Series!

Every off-road enthusiast knows the thrill of treading into unknown territories. But with the thrill comes the risk of getting stuck in mud, sand, or snow. Traditional winches promise recovery, but how many truly deliver when it matters the most? The real test of a winch is not just in its strength but in its reliability, speed, and adaptability to diverse situations.

Power And Lightning Fast Line Speed United

With their 6.5 horsepower motor and 42 feet per minute line speed the OVS S.C.A.R (Submersible Compact Amphibious Recovery tool) winches are rugged warriors built to perform under extreme conditions ensuring you can get out of any adverse situation safely and quickly. They are engineered for repetitive pulls and are ideal for the most extreme recovery situations you may encounter on your adventures.

Their oversized engagement handle made from 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum is designed with precision and operates effortlessly due to its precision-engineered ring gear and 3-stage planetary gear system. All this promises an experience as smooth as a mountain lion's sprint.

And oh, the military spec cone braking system built right into the motor? That's where the magic happens ensuring zero heat and creep, even when you pull with all your might. It's like having the stamina of a marathon runner with the strength of a heavyweight champion!

We get it. You've got a lot of choices when it comes to online retailers, so why should you even bother spending your hard-earned bucks shopping with us? 

Here are four short reasons why Open Road Overland is not like the rest of the bunch and why we believe that your shopping experience with us is not only 100% safe, but will also exceed your expectations, so you come back for more and maybe even bring your friends.


We use encrypted SSL security and are Level 1 PCI DSS compliant to ensure that your credit card information and every transaction on our website are 100% protected. 


We started overlanding in 1998, way before overlanding was even a term. Since then we have spent the last 25 years zig-zagging the planet trail testing the types of equipment you find in our store. In other words, we learned the hard way what works and what doesn’t, through hands-on experience during our own adventures on 6 continents (yes, we still haven’t made it to Antarctica). To ensure that we add value to your adventure with the products you shop with us, our policy is that nothing goes on our website before it has been thoroughly reviewed. This means that you will not find anything in our store that we would not bring along our use on our own overland adventures.


Secondly, we have been driving almost any type of vehicle you can think of over the years. This means that we have acquired a strong skill set to answer any question you have concerning your own vehicle setup, no matter whether you drive a standard passenger car, a pickup truck, or a fully rigged 4x4 overlanding vehicle. 


Thirdly, we strongly believe and promote that overlanding should be accessible to everybody, no matter what you drive, or what level of experience you have. That means that we can guide you as a novice overlander just starting out, as well as giving advice to you as an ultra pro with years of bushwhacking behind the wheel. That’s why you will also see both entry-level products, as well as top-of-the-line gear on our site, so we can cater to everybody looking to elevate their own overland adventures. No matter what, you can rest assured that the products you find in our store are here because they do the job they were made to do. 


Apart from the above we of course also provide you with:  

  • Free Shipping to the lower 48 states, with no extra charges. Ever!
  • Price Match Guarantee. Best prices online, guaranteed.
  • 30-Day Easy Returns. Not happy with your product, we'll take it back no questions asked, and without charging you ANY restocking fee. Ever!
  • Great Service. We pride ourselves on the best service, anywhere.
  • Your Satisfaction Guaranteed. We handpick our products for quality to make sure you will love using them on your own adventures. But if there is ever something wrong, we'll fix it.
