RRO WK2 Winch and bumper kit

http://www.rocky-road.com/wk2-winch-bumper.html

Looks pretty sweet. I would like to see some D-shackle mounts for it but for the price, hard to beat. Personally, I want a Warn Power Plant HP. Wondering if it would fit. Might also block the radiator too much. With that said, the controls and hose attachment point will be difficult to get to. I guess a conventional winch will have to do.

The price for the winch seems high. Quadratec has it for $399. Still not a bad deal for a 10k lb winch and name brand at that.

I think RRO did a great job with this. I agree it definitely needs shackles. I wonder how it impacts the overall strength of the frame? I'm sure they would say it's as strong or stronger. If you can install yourself, you're looking at under 1k for everything including winch so I think that's a great deal. Although I will probably never install this on my jeep I think it's cool.

Jackal, I predict you will have this on your jeep before the summer is over lol !!

I like that RRO is putting time and energy into taking care of us WK2 owners. I just wish some of the other big groups would make something for us. I dont like being forced to buy the only product on the market. But RRO is making some nice looking products and just what many of us have been asking for.

Just because you are paranoid doesnt mean people arent following you!

Looks great, and I too was surprised on the price. I'm pretty sure they stated the strength wasn't there to add D-rings (huge thread on other site). Since I'll more than likely never go hard core off road, I too will probably never buy this.

I probably don't need a winch and getting all that, warn powerplant, is excessive for just OBA but not a lot of places for such a piece of equipment on the Jeep. If I could work around the air hose connections and knobs I would do it. Still, about 1k for a decent winch and setup is a steal.
