winches

I'm a first time jeep owner, and want to put a winch on my 2014 Sahara unlimited. I was wondering if that can be done and still use the stock bumper? Thanks for the input.

If im not mistaken the Quadratec Winch has only been on for a year maybe 2. I have never read any reviews on it, but I wonder who manufactures it?

I assume it comes with a warranty but I would still be leery of actually buying one.
Great price though.

Cant go wrong with Warn if you didnt already know

I have a q9000 with the non integrated solenoid, and with steel rope. Came with everything i needed to install (ran the cables through the grill), has a lifetime warranty on mechanical, 1 year on electrical.

havent used it yet though.

Here is the Rough Country Winch Plate that is designed to allow you to run a winch on your factory front bumper. It's a really solid piece and you get it with or without D-ring mounts up front. This will be one of the cheapest and esiest ways of mounting a winch on the factory bumper.

Let me know if you have questions or would like a quote!

Where under the good did you mount your solenoid and how? I haven't been able to locate a good spot for mine. Any tips would help.
