ARB TJ Front Stubby Bull Bar Bumper?

ARB TJ Front Stubby Bull Bar Bumper?

Is anyone running the ARB Front Stubby Bumper?

Has anyone fitted a Superwinch 9.0? It says it will not fit, but I'm guessing it is the external brake that is causing issue. Usually it does not fit by just a few 1/16th. A little trimming and it works. But just want to see if anyone has seen this or experience this scenario.

Also, is everyone using the provided shackle mounts or are you doing something different? Maybe something that face mounts to the bumper and can be reinforced with a backer plate? See the bottom pic?

I'm running it with a 10,000 pound superwinch. Very very stout bumper. I've also used the provided shackle mounts.

Water Dog,

Which 10,000lbs superwinch are you running? I have an EPi9000 and worry about it fitting.

How much room did you have on the lever side of the winch? Since I have an ep9.0 I want to make sure there is room.

There is almost 3/4" from the end of the winch (lever end) to the edge of the recess on my 10000

Waterdog,

Are you using a Roller Fairlead or a Hawse? If a roller, is it the Superwinch supplied unit, or a different one?

I'm using the Superwinch supplied roller fairlead. I made my ARB stubby bumper a little stubbier, but didn't do any mods to the winch plate.
