Re: Winch Mount and bumper

May be someone can post a LINK of were someone posted how to install / tips / tricks I did do a search with no luck thanks. I am going to pull the trigger and order the winch mount, Combo bumper and the Pre-runner skid tomorrow
I have just 1 issue with the skid, IMO it kinda looks unfinished but when i get it all together I am going to take a good look and see if there is a way to remount the 2 side black abs covers back on... that will give it a clean look when i am on the road witch is 98% of the time here is a pic of the 2 sides that i am typing about (if anyone is good at photo-shop i would like to see the skid on )

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

Not sure if those can be separated - it is one piece that comes off. I personally am just running the prerunner when I know I am going offroad. It took about 10 minutes to take it off, put it on....

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

I don't have a winch installed at the moment so I don't have a fairlead sticking out. I just used 3M double sided tape to attach the license plate to the bumper and cover the fairlead hole. Sorry, not the solution you were looking for

Thumbs down Rugged Ridge Hawse Fairlead

I ordered and received a Rugged Ridge Hawse Fairlead License Plate Holder for the front license plate and wouldn't you know its doesn't work!!! ,,, then i learn to find out its ony ment to fit a Hawse fairlead 1/2" thick max! and the one that comes with the Warn VR10000s is much thicker and as most other common winch Hawse Fairlead so now its back to trying to fabricating something that will work ,,, but not before I call Rugged Ridge tomorrow and give them a piece of my mind! Im hoping that they have a different mounting system for the Warn Hawse Fairlead ! I'll keep you guys posted!

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

They are ready to test fit a 2014 - they just need someone with one to be able to share their vehicle for a few days so they can measure and design...

If the Trailhawk II was finalized yet.... I would have a 2014, and would already have it in there for a winch install.....

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

Bump, any update on the 2014's? Last I heard they were working on it. I could see a ton of people with Diesels wanting this thing.

They are still waiting for someone to bring one in to test fit/modify. I'd only he would release (or not) the trailhawk 2, I would know what I was buying....

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

Looking to get some fog / driving lights put on my RRO set up, I have not seen to many lighting ideas I am kinda liking the WARN W350F 3-1/2" 55W Fog lights. LEDs would be nice but for a Quality Pair $$$
anyone have a few pics to share or if you know a thread that covers this that would be great
