Re: Winch Mount and bumper

They do have the jig now made to start manufacturing these - they just need to get all the instructions completed, get it processed and priced, and on their website - they thought a couple weeks or so.

I should also mention - in chatting with the engineer on Saturday, he has "100 other ideas for this" - so the first version isn't the last....

We talked about extending the bumper cover to make it longer, embedding lights, additional light tabs across the front, etc.... So - lots of future options.

Hopefully later today - we got hit with a surprise snowstorm yesterday, and I didn't get a chance to do pics.

I didn't have them put on mine, since I think I am going with an LED light bar. (The one I ordered wasn't what I wanted it to be....)

Excellent! Some nice warn lights would be great!

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

Thanks for the update and being the Ginnie pig it worked out GREAT for you the look is clean unlike the ARB full bumper style
one question for you did they make it an upright mount or is the winch upside down ? BC i have looked at the under side and not sure how they cramed it in their ( any pic would be great )
Again thanks for sharing

I will take some more detailed pics when this snow melts off. The winch is sitting upright in the bumper. It is VERY tight in there - 10,000 lb winch is about as big as possible. Will try and snap some pics through the grill, without removing the bumper....

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

Do you know if they have any plans for the lower part of the bumper. ( like a skid plate or something)

Not that they have discussed with me - but I will see them on Wednesday or Thursday and will pass along. Did you have something specific in mind? I know they are open to ideas - as long as they have a market that will buy them....

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

Wow, this came out very nice! That's a real clean look. I am definitely interested in one of these. Do you have the wireless remote working now, or is that an idea for the future. Thanks for the updates on this , really looks like a great product.

Wireless isn't working now (crappy eBay wireless remote). Didn't have enough time to rewire with trying to get ready for Moab. It is something I do want to do when I have a few minutes.

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

A few more pics - not washed after the snow storm, but hoping it gives you more of an idea. I also have some high-res versions, but they are big....
