And this is the install...

Thanks guys!! I am really impressed by how it came out... Originally my wife didn't like the pictures on the net with the red one.. but I had the idea in the back of my head!...
All she(the jeep) needs are two more set's of spots, then I will be Super happy puppy!!!. :D

Wasn't that bad actually.. I took about 3 hours just on ensuring I have the Winch in a way I like it/ can access it, and also quite some time to find the correct trigger for the spots.

The overall hardware install was actually really easy!. :eek:

I will include I know my metal work, and Know what is a good weld and what not!, and these are top notch!. clean joins, great powder coating! and everything fitted first time around!. nothing was a tight fit, or a fit with some force!!..

overall. Rocky road did an excellent job with this product!!!!. :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

Hey dude, sorry to say, but I doubt it will fit. the Winch is dropped into the the bracket and the top of the bumper clears it with about 1". You will have to use one that has the controller loose so that it can be mounted out of the way.


Oh Those long plastic things are washers for the lights!!.. How do you activate them?

Effen sweet. I have no need for the winch however, I do want to run auxiliary lights. I have the Lightforce 240 Blitz sitting in the basement that I havent used for years. Where did you run the power from/to? BTW, I was hesitant to run the 240's due to there size but seeing the 170's tucked towards the grill= excitement. Damn.... Lightforce puts out a ton-o-light....and I aint kidding. Been running them since 1999 on my Durango. Best light period..(IMO obviously)
