2010 Winch Install

I bought the Warn M8000 winch and installation kit using the stock bumper. Not an easy install! I used special plug connecters so that I can unplug the winch and plug in some jumper cables

I don't know how you were able to do it. I didn't think winches could be installed on a stock JK bumper.

Warn has an installation kit for 07-10 JK's using the stock bumper. Again, it's not an easy deal, but I prefer the stock look.

^Agreed. Also, airflow to the radiator/condensor may become an issue, especially if you head up to the mountains- not sure what part of CO Durango is in, but you should definitely look into a proper winch mount bumper- Mark W.
