Rugged Ridge XHD + Superwinch LP8500
 
I was wondering if any has this setup and if the winch fit on the bumper correctly and the holes all lined up ect. If that is not the case were you able to make it fit what did you have to do?

I currently have the Super Winch LP8500 (i picked it up for $320 shipped out the door)

Superwinch, LLC - Entry Level Winch * Recreational Off Road Winch

I was going to purchase this

Rugged Ridge XHD with the integrated winch mount and the Black Bull bar

Rugged Ridge 11540.10 - Rugged Ridge Winch Mount Modular XHD Front Bumper in Textured Black for 07-11 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

If anyone can Clarify if these play well with each other that would be great. Also anyone that has this setup i would love to see some pictures and hear your installation story.

Thanks so much!

I've got the XHD bumper that I'm about to install myself and a Superwinch EPi9.0S on the way next week. I was told by a quadratec online rep that these two would work fine together, but I'll be posting about the install after I get it done. I'm not certain that this winch and yours have the same exact mounting pattern, but I'm guessing they would. (Do almost all winches have the same mounting pattern?)

I myself am trying to install the same eqipment and trying to put the fog lights in but the installation isn't lining up right. The screws don't seem to fit. Any ideas?

I had to bend the small studs on the bumper to get them to line up with the stock fog lights. As for the original poster, I installed a Warn M8000 in the xhd with no problems, I belive your wimch has the same bolt pattern.
