Pavement Ends Front Bumper Install w/ Warn M8000

This is my first post so advanced apologies if it is not up to par. I installed a Pavement Ends front bumper and winch plate along with the Warn M8000 winch.

Pavement Ends front bumper weight approximately 41 pounds
Pavement Ends winch mounting plate weighs approximately 20.5 pounds.
Warn Winch M8000 with steel cable weighs about 70 pounds.
I failed to weigh the roller fairlead before the install.

My Jeep is a 2013 2 door Sport with stock springs, no lift (yet) or tow package. Approximate front end height loss after the addition of the new bumper and winch was approximately 5/8 inch on passenger side and 1/2 inch on driver's side. I have not yet driven the Jeep to see what, if any, handling characteristic changes there are since the addition of the new bumper and winch.

Install was more difficult than I had expected. Pavement Ends instructions were vague and had wrong bolt information listed for the installation. Bolt holes also did not match up which added to the difficulty of the install. Overall I am pleased with the bumper and the winch.

After negotiations, price of the bumper $169, price of winch plate $75 from 4 Wheel Parts in Temecula, CA. New Warn M8000 $354 after $100 rebate on E-Bay.

Looks good!
I would like to do that exact set up. I already have the winch. Are you happy with the set up?
