i have the xrc 1200 winch. works really well and a good price.
|12-13-2013 12:12 PM|
Thanks for all the info =)
Im in a debate with myself now over it all.. From ebay I found a stinger front end that I like
07 13 Jeep Wrangler JK Stinger Rock Crawl Front Bumper 12000lbs Winch D Rings | eBay
but comes with a mystery winch.. when im leaning a bit towards a 9500I
Quadratec Exclusive 92122 2020 - Quadratec Q9500i Self Recovery Winch - Quadratec
I like the Smittybilt XRC bumper with full end caps for stock fog light mounting and the stinger loop add on.
im at 1225 for the 9500I and the smitty bumper all said and done..
or I go the ebay bumper with a similar look but losing factory fog's and going with an unknown winch name for 676.95
if only money grew on trees this wouldnt be an issue haha

James is our "winch guy" I can attest to the fact he has used that winch to pull more stuck rigs, rocks, and logs than anyone I know.
Check out eautogrilles on ebay, they have a nice selection of bumpers at low prices. The prices are very good, you will need to touch up the paint here and there as is it the weak spot though. Worth a look.

|jamesx2||Internet folklore says the Smittybilt 8000 sucks but let me tell you Ive had mine for more then 2 years with over 100 pulls and its still going strong. James recommended!!|

Truth be told hard to get my jeep stuck
|12-12-2013 05:21 PM|
Hows it going everyone. Hope thanksgiving was good for everyone.
Seems like Christmas is closing in fast..
So I've had quite a blast with my rubicon on my atv trails ive widened to accommodate the jeep and i got myself stuck once in the mud.. so i've decided my first upgrade is going to be a front bumper and winch.
Any recommendations for the bumper? It seems like a never ending list of bumpers on quadratec's site and im just like how does anyone pick one they like haha?
I suppose id like to be able to reuse my stock fog lights in the new bumper, it would be nice to not lose them bit im not opposed to losing them for a great look.
Any actual benefit around here for a Stinger loop?
I dont plan on falling forward off cliffs with my jeep anytime soon, but it does look sharp
winches.. another never ending list..
My current offroad has been some light stuff around my cabin, little mud and over trees and sand by the river.. I got stuck once in a field that was apparently a swamp years prior and when I broke the surface I got sucked in. That would be the only thing I forsee needing it for and very rarely, or more often if I have one and want to try blasting through the mud..
I do not need a ultra high end model, I would be happy with one that works when needed even if its a slow pace/long time to pull the jeep out, speed not much of an issue.
So what say you Hudson valley folks.. Any thoughts?
Long term plans include, some tracker 8 15inch rims with duratrac 33's and a 2.5 in AEV lift most likely =-) just because, one does not simply stop at a bumper and winch..

Yeah I'm not sure about jeeps, I do know that he has done my lifted dodge 2500 and my lifted xterra. Come on city of newburgh always offers some free Entertainment. Also he does all the work for dealer in newburgh. good luck

|DURTY_tires||Just a note for all of you in the Westchester area, don't ever take your rig to Bart's auto service in White Plains. It's taken him 4 weeks to change my gears in the rear diff, i overnighted the parts after waiting a week in line, and then waited another 3 weeks for him to install them. Still currently waiting for my rig. couldve done it myself if i knew it would take that long. jesus christ. I know sometimes it takes patience, but this is starting to get a bit too long for just the gears.|

|CopperheadGirl||yeah, I was thinking about Derham or maybe Orange County Tire in Chester. Both have a good reputation but I don't know if they have experience with lifted jeeps... I usually try and avoid the city of Newburgh, if I can|
|12-11-2013 12:57 AM|
|halfpint||what about Derham frame and axle in Newburgh ?|

Finding a shop that can do it properly on a lifted jeep can be a challenge. Ask questions about working on lifted vehicles, the stock specs don't always work once you modify the suspension and they have to understand that. If you find one that does a nice job post it up as I am not currently aware of anyplace in this area that handles this well. if Duhboy's bud is a wheeler with a lifted JK it might be worth the trip.
