this is one of the costco champion 8k winches. obviously the gas tank has to be moved. this is actually on a trailer so moving the tank was not an issue.

i tried to figure this problem out for a long time myself. if you were to put it behind the rear seat you would have to make some sort of mount to attach to the vehicle's frame. and you would have to have a hole in the tailgate to access the hook and cable. you could always go with the multi-mount system.

I was thinking of that also, its hard to justify two winches on one vehicle.

With this set up you only need one winch. It sits in a craddle that can moved front to rear. All you need is a front and rear bumper with hitches in them!!

penguin in a cj has his winch mounted on a bracket that has a trailer hitch adapter build into it. He built it himself, and if it really is bad enough, he just gets a little dirty and moved the winch to the rear. Not the easiest or most "mall crawler" solution, but if need to use a winch in the back, the situation warrants getting a little dirty to save your rig. Atleast in my limited experience with eastern wheeling.

Nico i'm searching the net for ya to try to help you out but so far i've found nothing. However i wonder if buying a front bumper that holds a winch and then adding the necessary brackets will work.

i also wrote a mail too the guy with the red TJ with the winch in the rear. perhaps he can tell me where he bought the rear winch bumper or who built it.

btw. i really need a new rear bumper. i just saw that my actual one has scratches from my flex tests...

You are starting to sound like Scout! Next thing we know the Runicon will be spending the night in the kitchen!

Do a search for dr hook

on jeepforum he did some nice work.

I think he has since then sold the jeep but there is a good bit of info over there on rear winches.

i could fab something like that out of 1/4 or 5/8 plate fairly easily. im going to be building a bumper for my jeep almost like that but i dont need the rear winch. it could easily be cut out of any aftermarket bumper. you would just need to reinforce the way that the bumper mounts to the frame or risk ripping your bumper rite off the frame.

just found another rear winch bumper:





i lokked at my rear with a friend today. and i think iīll have to cancel the rear-winch-project. because of my low bestop tire carrier.
i donīt have enough room for a winch undre the carrier.

if he has a tire carrier on his bumper that is a swing out i wouldnt get a longer bolt. think about the physics behind it. with 25lbs of steel and a 50lb tire hes carrying 75lbs on that bolt. by itself 75lbs isnt that much but once you hang it like in those carriers you have ALOT of torque on that bolt. if he puts a longer bolt he runs a big risk of breaking it.
