Put mine on today. Took damn near two days of fitting to get it to work with the rampage bumper, but I am very happy with the result.

I will be picking mine up on Monday, I got lucky at a local 4x4 shop during their Christmas customer appreciation party... I won some raffles and I asked the guy if I could trade my winnings for credit toward the Zeon 8s... he was nice enough to say yes, after credits I paid $550. I will also be getting my JcrOffroad Midwidth Dagger winch bumper w/skid plate and leaning forward hoop this coming Wednesday.
Merry Christmas to me... I can say that am blessed.

After thinking about it I decided to go with a Zeon 8000 S. Just got off the phone with Warn and it's shipping today.

Just a heads up, the Zeon will NOT fit the Rugged Ridge bumper that we bought from Amazon without being widened and lengthened. I own a milling machine and I'm going to rework the bumper tomorrow. I'll get a few pictures of what's involved but unless you own a machine shop I'd recommend not using that bumper with the Zeon or vise versa.

So now thats two...Rugged Ridge and Rampage. I'd suggest anyone interested in this winch go to a local place that sells it and check fitment before you order it. It is a large winch so it's worth making sure.

In a nut shell, this is what I had to do. Remove 1/2" from the rear and 9/16" from the right. The mounting hole had to be elongated 1/4".

Fortunately I was able to order it that way and Chris at LoD took care of getting it just right.



Love the bumper and winch setup. Very clean looking but still adds a little toughness. Some of the grill guards I have seen look like someone stretched a persons lower lip half way over their face. This one does not.

Got it, it was a fight all the way but I think it turned out OK.

My son helped and we started at the machine shop at 10:00 till 1:00 or so then made a run to Walmart for some flat black Krylon to touch up the mill work. Broke for some dinner and started the install at about 6:00, finished up a little after 9:00. Not exactly what I'd call an easy job but yes, it does look good.

And by the way, thank you.

My Jeep is a 2 door, I thought 8 would work OK for me. If I had a 4 door I'd gone 10.

I really didn't think about it since I had a 8000 lbs capacity winch on my Tj so I went with the 8s on my JKU, I guess I will be using a snatch block to be safe then. Oh well!
One question. Did your 8s or 10s Zeon come with a protective sleeve/rock guard sleeve for the line? Mind did not.
I called Warn and they said, "yes", that that a sleeve should have been in the box... they took my address and said they would be shipping the sleave out and I should be getting it today or Monday. Let's see if I do.
Here is a pic of my install...
