vacuum pump, did you move it ?

hey all,

had to relocate my vacuum pump with the custom stock bumper winch installation.

has anyone else moved theirs? where did you put it?

and is the vacuum pump heat sensitive? is that why they put it in the bumper?

Most bumpers will come with re-location instructions and brackets if it is required for it to be moved. I installed the Rugged Ridge stubby and had to relocate moves it down very easy.

$23 from Quadratec made by OR-Fab. Poison Spyder bumpers like what I installed have you cut the crash bar off which is what the pump mounts to. This kit puts it in the engine compartment where it belongs. No chance of smacking it on anything or ripping the lines off now. Moving things down on a Jeep is never a good thing. That's just one more thing to smack on a rock.

I made a bracket, mine is where Schonick's is. You just lengthen the two wires and remove a section of hose. Very easy. You can buy the bracket, I did mine on a friday night and cut one out of some scrap aluminum.

Moved mine with the bracket that came with the Hard Rock front bumper. Didn't cut off the old bracket in an elegant fashion, just bent the old bracket down with a hammer. Noone can tell that except an anal guy with a slide rule. I think it's original location has nothing to do with anything except factory convienience. Once you take off your front and rear bumper, you will realize that the factory has things other than you in mind.

Trapjaw, Im very impressed. Your right, thats the point of this thread. I do need to move mine, and the Spod is in that spot.

Has anyone moved it anywhere else? can I lay this thing on its side and slide it under the Spod?

I think you'd have to make your own bracket but it won't hurt it to be on its side. I had mine stuffed in my bumper that way for 2 weeks before my kit came in for back order. There aren't too many choices for kits though so you'll likely have to make your own.

can anyone else verify that you can lay the vacuum pump down on its side?

It's just a vacuum pump. But best of luck. 15 years of turning wrenches apparently doesn't make me qualified to know that.

Teraflex has a relocation bracket that puts the vacuum pump up next to the brake master cylinder. Northridge sells it. It's what I have so I can use my SPOD as well.

That is freakin great! thank you everyone!

Snochick- i didnt mean to snub your wrenching experience, You need to post your resume in your signature. Sometimes people just say stuff on forums thats why I asked if anyone else felt the same way.

Im a big fan of harley quin and poison ivy!

There was some pic's somewhere on here that show how the guys at Ace engineering do it. Adam the owner talked me through it its pretty easy it just drops down 1 1/2" just enough to clear bumpers and you dont have to reroute your lines just use cut off saw on the 2 welded studs then drill out, drop it down bolt back on from the bottom it took me 20 min pretty easy theres some pic from Ace around this Forum somewhere.

My 12 came with the AEV bumper from the factory and the pump was in the stock location. When i added a winch bracket and winch, AEV in included a kit to attach the pump to the winch bracket up and out of the way. I did not have to move the stock bracket.
