Re: Winch Mount and bumper

Does it effect deploying of the airbags?

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

Very sharp. Did not think this would be possible. Interested in hearing how it functions over time.

+rep to jcarone for the prototype efforts.

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

Thanks for all the updates. The entire set up looks great, and I'm definitely getting one as soon as they're available to the public. Do you by any chance know if the winch mount will interfere with the cruise control sensor?

For the Adaptive Cruise Control - they haven't been able to test it - they need the sensor to see if they can figure out how to mount it - their existing design doesn't have accommodation for it - but it could still be designed in....

As I understand - it was an expensive piece to order in to just test it to see if they can make it fit - so when someone is ready, they will work it out (maybe just unclip the sensor and send it to them to test....)

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

Looks great! I'd like to see one in polished stainless or maybe chromed - that'd be suh-weet! How do you access the clutch handle of the winch? Do you have to pop your hood? Might not be very accessible in some 4x4 situations.

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

This looks awesome!
Any word on pricing and availability?
Also can someone recommend what would be the best winch to use that has a wireless remote.

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

Back from Moab - jeep safari was a blast - did a few trails in the WK2 - not too bad. Next time, need mud terrains and to air down, but had some fun wheeling around.

I have attached a couple trail pics for those who have asked about pics of the whole rig.
