What bumper did you use? I was thinking of :I bought my M8000 from Amazon last month for $540 shipped and Warn has a $50 rebate going till the end of the year, so I'll have $490 in mine when all is said and done. I haven't had to use it yet, but I've seen an M6000 rigged with a double line (snatch block) pull the TJ it was mounted on plus a 3/4 ton 4x4 Dodge Diesel that was hooked to the TJ plus a 1/2 ton 4x4 Dodge gas burner that was hooked to the 3/4 ton while trying to recover a S-10 Blazer from a mud hole. It drug all three vehicles and the Blazer remained in the mud. :rofl: I have no doubts that an M8000 is way overkill for my TJ.
This. ↑ I used Under Cover Fabworks 1/4" Carbon Steel winch plate right on top of my stock bumper. :thumb:Warn's reputation for quality is sterling. And all you really need is a winch mounting plate which will allow the winch to be mounted onto nearly any bumper.
