Thumbs up productive day...winch & a bumper!

Still need to wire the winch to the battery and that stuff, but the heavy lifting and hard part is done.

Setup a Rampage Recovery Front Bumper and a Warn M8000 winch.
A long day, thank goodness my Uncle had air tools. A little bit of grinding was needed for one of the holes where the winch plate mounts in to the bumper. And one use of a sledgehammer to knock the bolts from the bumper fully into all 8 of the holes on the "frame" of the jeep. The coating on the bumper got a few battle scars from the installation but some flat black touch up paint will make it perfect.

The winch is the same price everywhere.... like $539 and a rebate if you get it by the end of the year. Shop around and you can find free shipping.

The bumper was like $510 from Amazon, with free shipping also.

I was able to use the stock fog lights that came with the JK. They work fine and it came with all the HW needed.

It took me a while to find the proper bolts needed to mount the Warn winch to the winch plate that came with the bumper, but after 5 minutes on the phone with Grainger we were able to find them.

Did you happen to measure how much sag you got on the front end after installing that combo?

Looks awesome. Sweet bumper and good choice for the winch. I am curious also, did that combo lower your front end at all?

I've seen this bumper in the catalogs and did care for the looks of it, but seeing it on your JK makes me have to rethink that bumper. It looks sweet on your Jeep!

Looks awesome. I think I will have to take a closer look at that bumper as well.
