Re: Push bar

Stock ARB with grill guard is about 80 lbs. That unit has been cut down to fit much tighter against the body and has no grill guard, so figure 65 lbs.

Re: Push bar

Took the words right out of my mouth. I had an ARB on my XJ and i was a heavy mo fo. Glad i did not do a winch.

For the record, Red rocker, your bumper is much nicer.

whats yours weighing in at? it is much nicer then most i have seen.

i don't wheel enough (at least right now) to justify adding any more weight to front of my vehicle. I just added the 4xGuard rocker skids and will be adding the belly, front and rear skids 1 at a time next year.

I really wish AEV would produce that effin hidden winch mount already. I don't see it happening ever

Re: Push bar

AEV really does not seem like they are putting much effort in to making anything for the WK specifically. I would love to see a nice rear bumper with tire carrier done. I love swing out tire carriers.

It would be hard to weigh his as its the front X member now and part of the tuck. LOL IMHO, after seeing his build i would say its prolly no more then an extra 125 lbs with he winch.

Re: Push bar

I probably added 50-60 lbs with the bumper. Some day I may actually get around to installing the 65 lb winch! (I spent all summer on house remodeling projects, I haven't even gone 'wheeling since GSW.)

I tell ya, Trango could make it happen for you - there's very little difference between a universal winch plate and the plate that AEV created. You just need to add the support wings going to the subframe.

I'm in the same situation w/ the house and i too have no been out since GSNE. The house is the reason my CJ is still getting no attention as well.

Whats this Trango you speak of? My concern w/ the winch plate is integration w/ the airbags. I thought that was 1 of AEV's issues
