This is a very minimum air blocker. If you are having overheating issues, it has more to do with something in your system than airflow!

We won't be offering anything with a full sunk winch. Approach angle is very important on ZJ's and putting the winch up higher allows for a better approach angle!

1. Here's a pic of my old ARB bumper. Why? well, it has the license plate and lights in front of the radiator... never had cooling issues even with the bigger motor. So, I don't believe that where you have the winch mounted that it would have any affect on cooling issues at all. The bumper and placement of the winch look great.



2. The weight of the bumper will be a consideration for some. Especially those with the stock 20yr oldish springs up front.

3. Have you strength tested the tow points on the bumper or like the old warm ads, pulled your ZJ vertically off the ground to see if "it'll hold?"

I'm sure the guys would really like to see that...it'd be a great selling point as well.

This isn't our first rodeo We've been building bumpers for 10 years now! If welded correctly, the tabs are not going anywhere.

Very nice, depending on price I'd be interested in replacing the ARB with one.

Will you be making some light mount points for it?

Firstly, nice avatar. Secondly, the bumper offers 2 light mount provisions on the top next to the headlights. We also offer a fairlead light bracket for regular lights and also our 10" led light bar. Also our current DIY tubework options for Prerunner and Hoop-forward include 2 light tabs.

That thing is freaking sick! Post some more pics when you get a chance (side views, etc). Have you come up with a price yet? Also, are there only specific winches that will work with it or is it pretty universal?

We'll have a bunch of pics and such once we get it on our website.

It will be pretty universal. The powerplant might not fit, but pretty much anything 9500-8000 range with am 8" x 4.5" mounting pattern.

Looks good! How does it mount to the jeep? I've got front end damage and would love to get one.
