insylem Sorry to ressurrect an oldthread.
But, hey where are the pictures? Or if you want
just shoot me an email and we can meet somewhere in town. Looks like you and I are neighbors in the same city. Havn't really seen any other 10As rolling arround town though.

They have the plate, a hoop/bull bar, and light brackets for the 10A factory bumper. They also offer a vacuum relocation bracket that doesn't require rewiring, a center trim plate for centered winches, and just released that they'll offer a trim plate to cover the holes if you leave the winch offset.

I did this install myself with my kids helping (12, 14, and 15) so it's doable without taking it into a shop. Here's some pictures and don't hesitate to ask any questions about the install.

insylem What suspension upgrade(s) if any need to be made for the added weight of the winch on the front?

Bjornvick Rustys off road makes a 10a winch mount that comes with the vacuum relocate

CPT_D What is Rusty's winch mount?
07-30-2013 05:22 PM
Bjornvick I actually used rustys winch mount which came with the vacuum relocation bracket. Also bought the maximus centering plate since I'm running a zeon 10.

MMichetti Maximus3 plate, bar, and light mounts. Good quality product.. Install was quick but not as easy as I expected. And it's not something you can order and have in two days, my buddy and I both experienced a bit of a wait.

jrussblues An aev winch mount is easily adapted to fit the mopar 10a bumper as another option. Leave it to mopar to yank an aev design but not have a winch mounting solution. Eesshh.

mxgy54 Yea they can get up there, but i was into my rugged ridge xhd with hoop for under $300, but got a good deal on it.
06-21-2013 01:48 PM
mhelgeson I could be wrong, but any decent bumper with a winch plate and bull bar is going to easily cross the $500 mark. I think they charged me $30 for shipping, but don't quote me on that.

Caveman1965 Here's mine. I got the winch from Maximus-3 also. These are really quality parts. I'm very pleased with the results. My lights are on order. I'll post another pic when I get them installed.
06-21-2013 01:24 PM
mxgy54 Thanks, I really like this set up but am trying to way the options of just buying a new bumper which would cost about the same... I really like the 10a bumper just dont feel like I'm getting much for the money. Did there prices include shipping? I think my quote right now with the centering winch mount and hoop and light brackets is about $500.

mhelgeson Hi guys. I already had a relocation bracket from OR-FAB but I wish I would have just gotten it from Maximus-3. I strongly suggest you just get it form them when you get the winch plate. Took about 2-3 hours with only my kids to help, you will need an extra set of hands at parts of the install. I got the plate, hoop, and light brackets from Maximus-3. I didn't get the offset bracket because the 9.5cti doesn't need it. Like I said above, if you go with an offset winch like the 9.5cti order the Front Trim Plate. Oh yeah, ABSOLUTELY find a set of L shaped torx keys if you get the hoop - absolutely necessary.

Shawnee Jeep I am looking to install this same exact winch on my 10A. How long did it take? What specific parts did you use i.e. winch relocation bracket, etc? Also, did you use the Vacuum Relocation Bracket that Magnus sells? Thanks. BTW, Joe is awesome to deal with at Magnus -3.
