Definitely getting this... need to just figure out all the cost as I won't be installing it. Hope to find a local offroading shop to do the work for reasonable amount. Can't wait to do this though

I helped txwest install the winch mount this weekend. It went well. Took about 8 hours with an hour for lunch. I have the pics since they were taken with my DSLR. . My best friend just bought a JKU Sport that afternoon so he was parked at the end of the driveway. First time it has had 3 Jeeps parked on it.

I guess I will say a few things. He wanted the solenoid away from the grille so he had some custom cables made to mount the solenoid on the passenger side then the remote connected on the driver side. Very ingenious. I plan to do the same. All cables and wires are loomed, ziptied, taped and sprayed with some connector protectant for use on batteries. Prevents corrosion and such. There is also enough room under the winch mount for a small air compressor for those that want OBA, as I surely do. I am looking at the single ARB compressor and it appears it will fit under there. Those were the key points I wanted to note. Nate can say the rest! (Nate, if you want a build thread, let me know and I will merge this post with the one you start)

Enjoy

Thank you!

Jackal, I'll grab most of these pictures and do a caption under a few of them.
Thank you again for all the help!

I just recently bought the RRO lift kit with UCA along with the winch bumper kit and a winch. I was wondering if any of you guys have experienced and sagging in your suspension due to the added weight?
