Location: ring side seats to the the country's largest circus
wow, how did i not notice that, but yeah, should be easy to do as long as u or a friend is handy with a weldor and a saw zaw. if u rnt able to cut the boxy part that the tire hooks up to, u could just get slightly longer sections of pipe, and raise the whole unit up
Just a question, why not get a 2 inch reciever plate, mount the winch to it when needed. Some thing like this Warn 75330 - WARN Multi Mount Winch Frame - Quadratec
Then you can transport that same winch to other peoples rigs if they need it and it is not there to get damaged on the trail if you hit something. Just my 2 cents.
If you do mount it there show us pictures of the modifcation as it is being done!
I have a 2" hitch receiver. But I donīt want a wonch on such a multi mount plate. Iīm lazy and donīt want to install the winch there when I need it. When I get stuck in 3" deep mud the 2" receiver would be completely covered with mud. And with such a multi mount the rear slope angle would be very bad.
With all my tools, spare parts, fluids, camping equipment, food ... there is no room to carry a winch in the Jeep.
Why should I share a winch with other people? I want it for my holidays in 2010. I want to travel through the woods and mountains of Croatia.
If you do mount it on the bumper like that, how are you going to plan on opening the rear door? I would do the 2" hitch mount and run the wires. How many times have you really needed a rear retrieval, where a front retrieval would not have worked? If you actually need it, slide it in and plug it up.
Now I know how to install the rear winch.
With the 2" BL more than the half winch would fit under the body when I cut this away (blue in the pic).
I will turn the side with the gears around that the gear shifter shows to the rear.
I just ordered a second "Horn Alpha 9.500 Fast" winch with 65 ft/min and a second 125' synthetic winch line.
First my buddy has to weld a cage for me. Then itīs time for the rear winch mount.
This year I wonīt do any more offroading. I still have stock front axle shafts. First I need the chromo shafts front and rear.
There are some more winter projects except the cage and the rear winch.
