Hidden or Bumper winch kit for 2011+ JGC???

I've been looking for a little while now but can't seem to find either one anywhere. Do any of you out there know of a manufacturer that builds one? I've seen one video on Youtube but they only mention the jobber that installed it and not the manufacturer. Any info on a hidden or bumper winch kit for the 2011+ JGC's?

Re: Hidden or Bumper winch kit for 2011+ JGC???

Thanks GFY8... I've always been a fan of WARN's product and was aware of the multi-mount. However, in my opinion, it is one butt-ugly piece of equipment to be hanging off the front end of such a classy looking rig as the WK2's. Not to mention you've got to lug 100+ pounds around to slide it into the hitch receiver. I'm really looking for something to add to the beauty of the vehicle as well as having something the wife can operate if need be. It surprises me that there seems to be a pretty good market out there but nobody has anything??? Thanks again man...

If you go to the end of the link posted you will see that Rocky Road is currently researching to do this as another company in the post did it for a guy on YouTube. I think everyone is waiting to see what the pricing and final product will be like.

Thanks Dan... Yeah, I'll just keep looking too. There's bound to be something to come out if we keep making some noise. As I said, there's a definite market out there for it. The ones that you mentioned look great and would love to slap something like that on mine. Oh well...I'll just keep looking and will post when and if I find anything. Thanks guys for your help!

Make some noise!!! I have been working with Rocky Road on a winch mount and bumper cover, but we only got a few responses of interest. They were researching how to build, and more interest would certainly move it along. I have seen a rough design for it, and it is amazing. Like the Photoshop, but cleaner, since it ties into the lines of the JGC. The last I talked to them, they were contemplating a build to order piece - base bumper, then add push bar, d-rings, winch mount, etc. I think they are just waiting to see if there is enough ground swell demand to start making them!

So - if you want one, let the know, or post here and I will share. See my other thread on this topic - it has a few questions about some of their questions before they a start building it.....

Re: Hidden or Bumper winch kit for 2011+ JGC???

Definately want to... Is there a way to contact them? A website, e-mail or number? I love the way the photoshop picture looked. It really adds to the looks and lines of the JGC's! They just need to get a few of them out there on/off the road so people can see the finished kit. Once they see it...it will definately stir up the demand! I'm on board...let me know how to contact them!

Previous thread (that had some directional questions) was here:
Winch Mount and bumper

Probably best to keep it in one spot - for responses!

Re: Hidden or Bumper winch kit for 2011+ JGC???

Great news!!! I just received an e-mail from Rocky Road Outfitters the other day. They said that the prototype winch mount for the 2011+ WK2 is completed and they're doing some final testing prior to releasing it. From what I understand the winch isn't totally hidden but they mention that the mounting plate is "pretty cool looking"! Hoping that it gets launched soon!!!

Re: Hidden or Bumper winch kit for 2011+ JGC???

I may be new to the wk2 market but on Jeepforum there's a HUGE thread that says to avoid RRO With an extreme amount of caution.

mybe this just for the WJ market they had a problem because anybody that has ever ordered from them was terrible every single review. when i had my WJ everything was RUN AWAY.

Have they changed?

I drop my jeep off at Rocky Road on Monday. A couple weeks and the bumper/winch will be done. Pics and details to follow shortly.....
