Talking Re: Winch Mount and bumper

This is fantastic news!

One question (if anyone might know):
The bumper is fitted for a Smittybilt XRC10 - any idea if a Warn M8000 will fit as well? I personally have no way to compare the two side by side but thought someone might have at some point...

If the M8000 (my current winch) fits I will definitely be buying (the price is great!)

Gôing simply off of dimensions Warn m8000 Dimensions: 21.04" L. x 6.3" D. x 7.6" H versus smittybilt 21.15" x 6.3" x 8.6",...... there is no reason it shouldn't fit. The remote selenoid is a must, and the Warn has that.....

Thanks for the info, jcarone!

I had actually already compared the mfg's dimensions and thought that it should fit theoretically - I was mostly wondering if anyone actually had both or had compared both in person at some point to see if they had a similar shape, form factor, etc in the "real world"

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

Has anyone got a quote on how much it would be to install mount and winch?

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

shambles sent this to me, but I thought the questions and response everyone could benefit from:

"I have a couple of Q’s for you

Being in Australia I have never dealt with Rocky Road - are RR professional enough to offer support for the fitment here via my mechanics?

With the space, possibly for a crumple zone, now filled with a very solid object. In the event of a minor front collision are you concerned that this could now do serious and irreparable damage to the engine and was much consideration given to this during development?

Have you checked out if the bolt on part effects the structural warranty of the vehicle?

The product looks 100% and I bet you are happy with it. Any WK2 with a winch now is no longera worthy contender in the comfort touring market it is the market.

[COLOR=white][FONT=Verdana]I have my lift, if all goes to plan I will have my winch, then new roof rails for my tent and civilisation won’t see me for months.


Rocky Road has been great for me - Lots of people complain about them, but in my mind it is because they don't understand them. They are a very small operation (about 10 or so people). Each part is HAND manufactured, not mass produced. When you order, your piece gets custom built for you (this also means they can customize within reason). They have great tech support (but due to time zones, for you may be best over email). The installation is definitely bolt on, and frankly quite simple once you remove the bumper.

When you take off the plastic valance bumper cover, you quickly realize it is just plastic and a small piece of styrofoam - no real "crumple zone" there. But if hit solidly, you would have the winch run into the radiator pretty quickly - not much different from most off road vehicles with a winch.

As for Warranty - I haven't checked in on it. When the cross member is removed it isn't horribly substantial. There are two of them, and you just take the front one off. The replacement piece is MUCH sturdier. In the states, there are laws on car modifications, essentially requiring the manufacturer to prove that the modification caused the specific issue. In my case, I think the more substantial cross member could be proven to have the same or better performance. Hopefully I never have to try.

So far so good - I am really happy with it, and see lots of people looking and commenting on it...
