Winch mount on jgc?
 
I have a new Warn 8000 winch I'd like to put on my new JGC. The winch came off my wrangler, the winch was less than a month old when I took it off. I was wondering if anyone has installed a winch capable brush guard or a winch bumper on there JGC. I don't like the hidden hitch mount, I have found that when you get stuck the less time you have to spend outside the car the better. Has anyone come across a mounting option on the internet for the WK2?

Any ideas?
I want to see one first, it might make the jeep look terrible but it is a shame for the winch to go to waste.

8000 is not enough for anything serious. At least on WKII

A Warn M8000 will be plenty for getting my stock JGC out of anything I plan on getting into.

M8000 is fine. You can always double or triple line it using pulleys along with an ARB winch strap extension and pull your JGC out of nearly anything.

Yes but how to attach it to the Jeep is the question.

Buy the hitch kit and put it on there. Pull you out the way you came in unless your too far thru it then have your buddy pull on your tow hooks.

I would love that set up and if a replacement bumper cover wasn't so much I would definitely start hacking away at mine:)

^^ I love that photoshop.

Sorry, I can't be of any help though. I did see some bumper covers on eBay, can't recall the price.
