I really hope RRO is doing a better job. They had seriously bad issues with ZJs and they still have pics of other company's products portraying them as their own. This could be a better production line for them.

I just ordered it!

I've been waiting for someone to come out with the under-bumper winch mount for my 2011 wk2! So, I bit the bullet and ordered the winch mount, bull bar and roof rack. It's been shipped, and we will install next week and I'll upload pictures, although it will look pretty much identical to the aforeposted pictures.

You might want to think about installing some heavier load rated coils on the struts. The winch weighs close to 100lbs, and the mount, nuts, bolt and everything is probably about another 50-75lbs. That a lot of extra weight to hand off the front. It will probably be pretty tough on the suspension without beefing it up.

Keep us updated on the progress.

Not sure if anything is even available at the moment. I would ask RRO, they had to source the spirngs for their lift kit, so maybe their source could make some heavier load rated springs.

The RRO lift does not include springs. Only spacers. For the WK2.

So, it's just a giant spacer lift then? If that's the case, then I retract my previous statement. I thought the RRO lift came with new strut assemblies.

The RRO kit is to the left of the sway bar links on the right.

Here are some pictures of my winch before we put the bumper back.

We have to cut some holes in the mesh grill in order to access the winch cable release and another one I connect the cable that controls the winch.

Why do you have to get all the cool toys?!?!! I wish I had money.

Looks good. Cannot wait to see it finished. Start a thread for your WK2, will be easier to follow. For me at least since you have mods I plan on doing.
