Introducing the ZEON Platinum WARN WinchNovember 20th, 2014 by Rachel Sheelam
From the company that’s brought you some of the most reliable Jeep and truck accessories under the sun, 4 Wheel Parts is proud to announce the latest addition to its line of WARN products: the ZEON Platinum winch. Boasted as “the most technologically advanced winch on the trail today,” the ZEON Platinum comes with all the power, speed and durability you’ve come to expect from WARN, plus all new advancements in winching technology.
The Platinum Difference
In the truck, Jeep and SUV world, the tough get going to where the going gets tough, so WARN has dedicated this winch to being the most impressive ally in your accessories arsenal. The ZEON Platinum features an IP68 waterproof rating, setting the bar for winches of its class and protecting it from water, dust and dirt. It stood up to rigorous testing, proving itself to have twice the durability of the previous generation of winches and bested its competitors with a 20% faster no-load line speed of 44 feet/minute. Fitted with a new, high-performance motor, the ZEON Platinum has a more efficient amp draw than its predecessors, a fast line speed, a stronger gear train and a high-strength sleeve-in drum brake design. It is one of the most technically advanced winches ever conceived.
This is also the only winch today with an Advanced Wireless Remote that not only gives you control over the winch, but features a controlled clutch. With the new remote, you can view instant thermometrics feedback on winch motor temperature and monitor your vehicle’s battery charge level. It comes with the option of connecting two additional accessories using the auxiliary controls, so you can tie in any auxiliary gear of your choosing, such as your lights or a compressor, and the remote charges with ease using the included USB charging cable and car charger adapter.
The ZEON’s beefed-up gears and extreme waterproofing are coupled with a durable finish for maximum corrosion resistance that exceeded 400 hours of salt-spray testing. The aluminum winch drum has a large diameter and is strong, light-weight, reduces rope wear and features an integrated rope anchor for easy rope installation.
ZEON Platinum is available with steel or synthetic rope, with 10- or 12,000 lbs pulling capacity. The Platinum 10-S comes with 100 ft of 3/8-inch WARNSpydura synthetic rope with heat-resistant coting, a ballistic nylon sliding chafe sleeve and a polished aluminum hawse fairlead. The model 10 and 12 each come with a steel rope and roller fairlead and deliver 10 – 12,000 lb capacities.
WARN offers a variety of accessories for the ZEON Platinum winch, including:
- Control Pack Relocation Kit
- Winch Rope Cover
- Medium Duty Accessory Kit – including snatch block, tree trunk protector, recovery strap, two D-shackles, heavyweight denier carry bag and WARN winching gloves.

The 4x4 and off-road lifestyle was all new to me when I first joined this team, but in the year since then I have developed a true passion for the automotive industry. I've learned more than I knew there was to know about trucks, Jeeps and SUVs - from suspension articulation physics to which types of tires are the best for wallowing in the mud. Whether it's the latest in automotive technology or the best 4x4's in film, I'm always on the lookout for the next big learning curve or news to share.
