If it help, the grille guard tube is welded on, not bolted on.

hey Andy... can you post the specifics for the bumper? weight... the thickness of the steel and whether you need a winch plate... stuff like that?

The shipping weight is 115 lbs.; without tube - 111 lbs. Mix between 3/16" and 1/4" material. And yes, there is a provision for a winch to be mounted. Hope this helps!

Does the warn elite require relocation of the vaccum pump on the 2012?

Yes. It has to be rotated 90 degrees. It's not to difficult.

Andy - Very cool to have you on the forum. I plan on picking up an M8000-s. Quick question, is warnfactoryoutlet.com legit? Says new stuff, just double checking since they have the best prices I've found.

I love this bumper. Question though, where would a dude from NH hang his required front license plate?

Can you use the factory lights or do you have to use Warns?

Can one add a winch later after the bumper is installed without having to remove/reinstall bumper?

WarnFactoryOutlet.com is a website that is not owned or operated by Warn Industries, Inc.

Our official website is www.warn.com.

WarnFactoryOutlet is operated by us and verify our reputation on here, we're legit. We are a stocking authorized Warn dealer, not the actual manufacturing company.

There are no second hand or blemished products on that site. All product is brand new.

Andy -

Does the Elite series bumper extend back to protect the swaybar disconnect motor on Rubicons? I haven't seen a skid plate that Warn makes that pairs with the elite bumpers yet.

Thanks.

No, it doesn't. We actually don't make skid plates for the JK.

Mr Andy, Is it possible to add a 2" receiver on there? And are there provisions for towing from this bumper (by attaching tow bar to shackle mounts)

So is my option then just to go unprotected? or will other skid plates attach to it?

Really my favorite bumper but I don't have a winch and most likely will not get one. What can I do to run this bumper?

Here is a video I found on YouTube, not my video, but shows a guy with a stock rubicon with this bumper. He painted his front bumper red, but it actually looks better on his vehicle than it does on the stock photos. Sort of changed my mind about the grill guard.

Did you ever get an answer to your question? I don't plan on running a winch either. Haven't seen a response.
