WK2 Winch kit install

Has anybody posted on this yet? I looked and couldn't find anything on it. I just got all my parts in and all I need is to find some time to install everything. I'll post up pics as I go along unless this has been covered already.

Hopefully it's not too much of a

Re: WK2 Winch kit install

OK finally had time to get this done over the weekend! I was going crazy with the parts in the garage and no time! I am not the handiest person, and all in all this was not a hard project, just time consuming when I had to re-do something because I forgot the washers, or used the wrong bolt.

First off, if you are going to do this make sure you have a complete set of sockets, a complete set of drill bits (at least 3/8, 5/16 and 1/2), some files (the powder coating needed to be filed away for some parts) and some spare rivets; I used generic 1/4" ones as the ones that were in the Jeep got destroyed when I took them out.

Re: WK2 Winch kit install

I was afraid of taking the parts off but they came away easily enough.

First came the air dam, I am putting the skid on so that was coming off anyway. You have to pull hard to get that thing separated!
