2013 Unlimited MOAB. Need Help Please!!
Hey everyone. I am a semi new Jeep owner and a completely new off roader. I took jeep out a few times and noticed a few mods will help a lot. The MOAB comes with a wench ready steel bumper but have no idea which winch I need to get for it. My local Mopar shop at the dealership said he didn't know about winches which is a little scary. Also I am needing a little more clearance. I do not know what lift to get and what kind of tires I need to upgrade to. I do want to keep the same wheels if I can. Can anyone help me please. I don't even know where to start. Also, I will probably have to have a shop do all the installs because like I said I am a newbie to the off road world. Im in the DFW area. Thanks for any info you can provide.

I just bought a MOAB. Dealer wanted me to get a WARN 9500cti for almost $2000. I ended up going to a Jeep outfitter that got me a 10,000lb Bulldog winch that fit very nicely into the steel MOAB bumper for about $1100 bucks installed, taxes included. I have not used it,but it looks very nice and is more than capable. Here it is on Amazon. Bulldog 10005 Self-Recovery Truck Winch - 10000 lbs. Load Capacity : : Automotive

For the price, check out a 9-10k ergo or Xrc from RC, or smittybuilt.

It the harbor freight badlands winches aren't too bad either. I had one on my old Cherokee and it worked great. The YJ I have now came with a 5k Warn, and guess what, its bad and warn wants $450 or something for a new motor.
