Take the bumper off, install the winch, install the wiring, then re-install the winch/bumper, and zip on the connectors (electrical), and enjoy! Mark W.|

Questions about xhd winch bumper
Alright gang, did some searching and couldn't find much about it. I bought a rugged ridge winch mount base bumper, and Ive had it installed for a while. I finally got the funds up to buy a new winch, and it comes today. Can I install this winch on the bumper after its on my jeep, or do I have to drop it to install. If anyone has accomplished this let me know. I'll also post pics of the jeep after install. Thanks!
