Rugged Ridge Winch Mount Modular XHD question.

Do I need to relocate the vacuum pump to install a RR XHD front bumper with winch on my 2013 JKU?

The rest of the bumper parts will be here this week and need to know if I need to get something to relocate the vacuum pump before I tear into this.

Thanks

Yes, you need to relocate the vacuum pump.
The bumper should come with the bracket to do this.

did you struggle to get enough of the vacuum line(s) to actually move the pump how the instructions indicated? I'm struggling a little with it...

It wasn't too tough to relocate it with that bracket. I was a little worried about surgery but all in all it was easy and is still in the same place 13 months later.
