|jcourtney986||Maybe I found a more current bumper than the one above, but I didn't have any problems at all. No cutting, nothing. On and in in 30 minutes. Didn't even have to take the grill out.|

|txoutdoorx4||No problem. Shoot over some photos, or post them up, once you've got it all setup. Good luck!|

Thanks for the install instructions for the 9.5. I'll be installing mine over the weekend.

Edit-the original bumper nuts came off ok. Just took a bit because the damn bumper bolts are so long. Why they do that I have no idea. Same thing with the bolts on the new bumper.

Looks great!!! How difficult was it to get the bolts off from the stock bumper before the new bumper went on? I remember it was tough as heck with my TJ.
I agree about Warn products as well. Their winches are top-notch and they have always been very gracious to us as a publication which has been an added bonus too. Good choice on the winch no doubt.
Any photos of the rig with the new bumper/winch on the trail? Again, nice job on the install!

Winch bolted to the bumper. Bolting her to the frame horns for the final time with a friend who helped lift it up on there. Thanks again Kevin.
All bolted up. Note the warning tag.
The hook looks better, no?
Hooked to it's new home.
Another friend of mine dropped in to drool. He is my jeeping buddy. Also lended a hand with the bumper ends. Note the over rider hoop is now installed
All done--it also now has a fairlead license plate holder.
Finally, one of my favorite pics from before the install.

As promised here they are. The wife took these while a friend and I installed. Wish the pics were better but they were taken with an iphone and the not so bright shop coupled with the superbright sunshine beating in the shop makes for washed out pics. The only thing different now is the the power and ground wires have been loomed. The bumper/winch install took roughly 2 hours including removing all the stock parts. Was easy as pie. Only needed help throwing the bumper/winch combo up on the frame horns. To be honest the winch part of it was honestly one of the easiest items I have ever installed. Looks great and I get lots of compliments on it. Went with the warn because of the history behind the name. You have to pay for it but piece of mind is worth it. This winch has not been tested but another 9000i bought at the same time by my good friend has saved our butts a couple times. I also have a 12k warn from the factory on my 2010 power wagon. Feels good knowing that is hiding behind the bumper. On to the pics.

|ColdSRT||When I get home I'll post up some pics of my recently installed warn 9000i. It's sitting in a rugged ridge xhd full width bumper on my 2010 unlimited rubi. Great winch.|
