Re: Winch Mount and bumper

I would vote for a bolt on unit. For me, I would like to see a simple 2" receiver mount so I could take the winch off when not in use. I have used this system for years and that way you can use one winch for both front and back help when stuck. You do not always want to necessarily go forward and may need to go back from whence you came. Also, having a receiver mount on the front comes in handy during some boat/trailer moving situations.

Plus I like the idea of not carrying the winch weight on the front when driving on long trips. Maybe they would do both the 2" receiver and hidden mount kit. Just my 2 cents.

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

OK guys - just talked to them this afternoon - looks like they are going to build one and see how it goes. Taking my JGC in next month, and they are going to build the first one, and hopefully have it to market a few weeks or so after that. They want to build the one, work out any bugs, then get it ready to sell - so.... More to come in the next couple months!

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

That looks interesting. I would probably be interested in something like this. It's not Rocky Roads fault, but these WK2's sit so low to the ground I imagine its very difficult to build something that doesn't have a big impact on approach angle. It's great they're willing to work on this, keep us posted.
