STOCK BUMPER WINCH MOUNT - JKowners.com : Jeep Wrangler JK Forum

Good stuff both places. I like my current bumper being painted and already a stubby so I may not spend the money on a new bumper.

No hate and discontent. I post whatever I find that best answers someone's question or illustrates my point. Doesn't matter where it comes from. You can do that here.

I'm a member on another forum that doesn't allow that. They'll black out links to other threads, and even certain Jeep products. Doesn't make any sense, since the goal is to provide info to fellow Jeepers.

I did see that the other day on the throne. I recall it being a tad steep on price. Have to go look again. Hopefully I can work a deal out with Daniel_M. I hope I like it and not end up buying a bumper later on lol.

Daniel_M Yes, that is what you need.

nmdriver I may be confused here...to use my current bumper I would need something like this:

Smittybilt 2804 - Smittybilt Winch Plate for 07-11 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK with Factory Bumper - Quadratec
Looks like it includes the mount and the bracketry to attach to the bumper?
03-09-2012 09:39 AM
Daniel_M There are also other's in the bumper game that have amazing looking bumpers for reasonable prices. The Espedition One Basic DX and the Pure Jeep Bare Bonez.

Jeep JK basic DX Winch Bumper - Expedition One LLC

PUREJEEP: PJ1003: JEEP JK BARE BONEZ FRONT WINCH COMBO, front bumpers

I don't think there is anything wrong with a used winch mount. Thing is 1/4" steel with grade 8 bolts. They are built to last pull after pull. I had it for 6 months and didn't have a pull with it.

Is there a used market for the mounts? Is that the only option?
I meant to say I like the bumper on my Sahara...guess I was tired last night...couldn't even spell Sahara!
