Same here, but two weeks ago I installed the roof rack.

Does anyone know if the winch comes with a synthetic cable?

They (smittybilt) sell a package that includes the synthetic line and the aluminum fair lead. But the base one doesn't come with it.

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

I plan to go with this fairlead. I don't want the extra cost of replacing the cable on my warn winch. It looks clean and will work with wire or synthetic rope.

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

I am anxiously awaiting word on whether or not this kit will work with WK2s that have the ACC sensor in the front...

RRO is working with someone who has ACC to test it on their vehicle. It could be something as simple as a couple mounting screws or a bracket. I believe they shipped one last week, so hopefully feedback soon on ACC compatibility.

I am the one that is currently working with RRO on the placement and hookup of this bracket with the ACC. I have recieved the winch and as soon as I have the bracket I will send a full write up back to RRO for future orders as well as post a full write up here (with pictures).

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

I do like the winch mount setup. It looks like they did a good job.

however, there is no way in hell I would EVER use a Smittybuilt winch. Why they used such a cheap a$$ winch, I have no idea...outised of size/ position of the drum. there has to be a way to fit a Warn in there somehow.

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

I ordered the winch mount more then a month ago on 7/6!
It was shipped 2 days ago. Now I look at the site and see they have a different option for a winch mount for air suspension that wasn't on the site when I ordered. Which means it will not fit my jeep.
Does anyone here knows someone in rockey road that is high enough the food chain to rectify their blunder?
