Re: Winch mount on jgc?

Since ARB does not have a bumper yet .. that would be the set up aI would go with. Please keep us updated ...

So I have to ask ... did he get mud inside of the Jeep?

Would really like to see what that looks like mounted, as it claims a perfect fit for the jeep.

Re: Winch mount on jgc?

Now if you go here:

http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/de...492302290.html

It says it fits 1993-2011. I guess it more of a universal fit that has to be drilled into the frame or something. I am more curious how the winch was mounted in the video I posted.

Re: Winch mount on jgc?

I emailed Wilson Offroad who did the winch mount on there - basically they told me it was a complicated install, and not something DIY or a Kit. Too bad, but a 5k mile round trip makes that an expensive mod. Going to look around for a local shop who would give it a shot.

Re: Winch mount on jgc?

Yeah, I'm sure any of your off road specialty shops could fab one up for you. Any fab work is always expensive. It does look good though, and there is alot of room for it behind the bumper.

Re: Winch mount on jgc?

Any updates? The comments on his YouTube vid say it cost ~1800. Seems steep to me, but I've never looked behind the bumper to see what's behind it...

Re: Winch mount on jgc?

I have been in conversations with Rocky Road about having one built. They are planning to look at it in January after the holidays. The intent is to make it into a Kit that could be installed without specific Fabrication work - but they haven't gotten into the particulars yet. They are also looking at some bumper modifications that promise to be sexy.... I should know more in a couple weeks....
