old school winch, on 2012 jk
 
I have a old warn up-right 8000# winch. I had it on a 75 ford 3/4 ton high boy. It is one of the strongest winches I have ever seen. The problem is, I want to put it on my jk. All the bumpers that I have seen on line are made for bottom mount four bolt. This winch is front mount four bolt. Is there a bumper made that I can get to be able to use this winch with a 2012 jk?

Thank you for your time guys an gals.

Post up some photos. I'm sure you can find a bumper that you can drill out ot make it work.

I have the Rough Country Hybrid Stubby bumper and depending on the size of the mounting area you should be able to drill holes in that bumper to make it work.

Here's a shot looking down at the bumper

That's a nice set up. Tried to up load from my phone wouldn't go. My winch is a up right. The housing comes up and the motor mounts in line an on top of the cable reel.

They fit on all of our Hanson off-road bumpers except for the Euro style :thumb:

Just be careful, the 8274 has a different mounting pattern than any other winch.....and its the best winch money can buy :) Nice score
