I could see mounting the Warn reciever mount behind the bumper, with just the reciever stub sticking out. You could then get another Jeep logo rubber plug like the rear has for when not using the winch.

I agree, the integrated winch into the bumper is the way to go. ARB's would take from the lines of the jeep,, and there seems to be plenty of room behind the bumper to squeeze a winch in. Come on aftermarket!

Re: Winch mount on jgc?

So maybe mounting behind the bumper is possible after all.

Re: Winch mount on jgc?

That is a really nice set up - I emailed him for some pictures of the installation. I'll let you know if he gets back with me.

I got stuck in the sand this weekend and it has made the process of looking for a winch installation more important.

I'm sure my local 4WD shop can fab one up. I have the winch I just need a good installer. There is a place that used to do custom work on my TJ I'll probably take it too. Since its been done it proves it can be done.

That flush mount is the way to go.

Keep us updated if he sends pictures.

What kind of sand do you have? Tire size, type, tire pressure used? I have some really deep sugar sand out behind my house but I have yet to have ever even lost traction in the sand with the QD II in sand/mud.
