Re: 2014 wk2 winch and front skid installed

Your Jeep is coming along very well.

Would you mind getting a few more shots of the prerunner front skid plate and did you install it yourself? It looks like you've fit it very well within the front fascia without having to remove the entire lower trim.

With out seeing a 2014 jeep in real yet, I must say how ever you did that, well done, looks great. would love to see where the actual "winch" is mounted and how? other than that looks great, nice and tidy for a town car with no need for a bull bar

The winch was mounted using the rocky road outfitters winch mount, all bolt on and some trimming on the front bumper. Took about 2 hrs, pretty straight forward install.

I'll try and post some more pics of the skid plate tomorrow , all work done myself. Pretty much only cutting was the part behind the lower chrome piece between tow hooks.

Re: 2014 wk2 winch and front skid installed

I took it off and used a 3 step process to paint over the chrome, after I found out that it worked I did the same to the rear brow

Love the rubicon wheels with meaty tires on the white wk2. I'm very interested in getting this setup for my 14 white altitude. My only question is what size tire did you use? Did you have issues with rubbing?

Thanks

Stock rubi wheels and tires, come out to just over a 32in tire. No rubbing at all.
