3. Just run it with no fairlead, the proplem with this is I already cut a hole in my bumper so that the cable wouldn't rub.



if anybody has any ideas let me know. thanks
My buddy has the mopar offroad bumper with a Warn 9.5 winch. I will have a look at his and see if that helps. If you do go with option 2, I would drill new fairlead holes since there isn't much strenght requried on those...well no where near the amount needed for the winch itself. Just remember that your fairlead needs to be centered properly on you winch to allow proper respooling

Adding a couple of washers under the winch plate should help you get clearance. I had to do this on another winch I had with a different bumper a while back.

I generally try to get as much info about what you guys and gals are running when you call in, however I haven't seen all combination of bumpers/winches out there. I generally have a pretty good idea of what is needed though. There are a few bumpers out there that require a raised winch plate. There are several companies out there that make them (i.e. Smittybilt, Body Armor, Rugged Ridge,etc). I've been nudging people towards the Smitty one based on price point on them.

NCJeepin, I'm shooting you a PM. You should have definitely received your winch plate by now.

Got pics of what you mean? Do the bolts not fit in the hole (on the "wall" of the bumper), or does the space taken by the fairlead bolt head, not allow the winch to be aligned with the holes on the "floor" of the bumper? When I installed mine, I recall (and my pics #40 & #41 - that you cited) that there is a slight indentation closer to the base of the winch (ie. the top bar of the winch extends slightly further out than the base of the winch)... is that space not enough?

1) adding shims may cause the wire to not be centered?
2) can't picture where you'd drill a new hole to make the bolt head not collide with the winch (got pic?)
3) you cut a hole in your bumper, or did the bumper come with a precut hole? Looks like the mopar bumper comes with and without a winch setup (http://www.quadratec.com/Assets/Installation/79145.pdf) which one do you have?

q1: Can you elongate the "floor" holes of the bumper slightly, in order to move the winch further way from the front "fairlead wall" toward the grill (to allow the fairlead/hawse bolt heads to fit)?

q2: check if hawse style mounts differ from roller type mounts?

Chris, you hit the nail on the head with the first time winch owner, let me ask you this.

I havn't put any load on the cable yet, I just undid the rubber band on the end to lead it thru the fair lead and install the hook. When I did this the whole cable came loose. I wound it all the way out, installed the hook and had my dad put some pressure on the line while I wound it in. Did I do any damage here, or do you simply reccomend me putting a decent load on it BEFORE I do my first real recovery?

Also, the knob (for lack of knowing a better word) on the "clutch?", got stuck when I went to put it back in engage to pull it back. I wiggled it around a little and it did go back. Is this normal or do you think something is loose/wrong..

Thanks for those videos, I needed some confidence before I put it to its first use

No, you didn't do any damage. I'm assuming that when you say the cable came look that you're referring to how tight it was on the drum and it kind of unraveled? This will happen with any new winch. Just make sure as I mentioned in the previous post that you do put true weight on the cable, not just holding it tight if you spool all the way out. This not only ensures that your line is spooled tight enough to hold, but also stretches your line (which should always be done before your first "true" winch use).

The "sticking" you mentioned is normal. The gears need to sync (for lack of a better term) before you can turn the handle. You should never try to force the handle to turn. A vast majority of the time, it is not a problem to turn the handle, but depending on where the gears are at during one given moment, it may seem stuck. Moving the drum forward or back slightly will free up the handle to release the clutch. This is normal for all winches.

yep that's what I meant, I assumed that was normal as it was never wrapped under a load, the cable just got "loose"
I'll stretch it under a moderate load before I really go wheeling.

exactly what I wanted to hear as far and the handle goes, appreciate it once again bud.

What do you use for a weight to tighten your cable?

I just attachd my cable to a tree, let it spin in the first 5 wraps with just me holding it and guiding the line in with some pressure, then I just winched the line in, lightly applying the brakes of my vehicle to keep some tension on the line. Worked like a charm.

Do you sell a winch plate for a YJ? If its a decent price I might be interested. in the Engo 9000 with the plate.

What deal will you work for a XRC 8 comp series and plate?

Looking to order tomorrow, so let me know.

So I installed the winch and everything. Except it's not wired to the battery because the bolt on the positive terminal is too short. But, I'll address that this weekend hopefully and get it hooked up. I went to put on the hook, and I removed the big black rubber band around the cable. I disengaged the clutch to spool it out just outside the fairlead, and the winch line kinda loosened up and unraveled a bit around the drum. So it's not wound tightly anymore. The outer layer is a bit loose and unraveled. Is this a problem, or will it be fine until I hook the winch up to the battery and stretch the cable?

They're an import winch and the company is based out of Washington state.

We sell it all. I can't *advertise* below a certain price on the Smitty winch with synthetic, but I can offer you a special deal if you call.

Are you referring to stretching the line initially? Hook onto another car or something. If you are referring to a recovery in the desert and there are no trees or boulders, then you can use a item like a Pull Pal or the Smittybilt W.A.S.P. system.

Smittybilt Trail Gear

Perfectly normal regardless of who makes the winch. The line is put on tight at the factory and once it is released without a load, it loosens up like that. Just unspool the line like in the how-to for new winch owners I wrote up a bit back in this thread and you'll be good to go and ready to use your new winch.

winch

Chris winch came in good condition as promised. the mopar offroad bumper went on with no issues with the canister per the dealer when they installed it however the that canister is in the way of the winch so I have to figure out how to relocate it.

"Warren"??

Do you mean a "Warn"? Assuming so and just to be clear, this winch outperformed a Warn in the article linked up at the top of the thread. Not to mention that the most comparable Warn is rated for about 8000 pounds (1000 less than this winch) and retails for about $480, nearly $200 more than this.

Nothing wrong with a Warn winches of course, but their not really in the same ballpark price wise and I'm pretty sure you're getting a diminishing return as that price rises. Just a thought.
