I got some awesome Christmas/ Birthday presents from my wife. I can't wait to install them... Hopefully this won't interfere with my full matrix setup. I'm also going to put in some in cab winch controls.

Christmas was 10 days ago and you don't have it mounted yet? *Kidding* :-D

..Nice looking rig you have there. Please post some updated pics when you finish the install.

Awesome presents man, all I got was clothes and socks for Christmas. Post pics of the install progress if you can.

Nice man! Good winch choice you made there :thumbsup: I absolutely love my EP9!

Yeah my wife is the best. I actually wanted the talon 12.5 but after reading the specs I noticed it was about an inch too long to fit in the saguaro mount. I hope the 9.5 will be enough!

I haven't used mine much, but it has never even hinted at having trouble on any pull. I like the blue fairlead too! I was thinking about picking one of those up to match my theme :D

Great gift! Please share about the install if you can.

Well I got around to installing this the other day. It wasn't too bad. It installed pretty easily and I didn't have any problems fitting the mount to the jeep.

The Talon 9.5 fit the specs just fine but it actually did not fit into the mount well. It was too tall. I had to grind about 1/16 of an inch of metal off two of the feet to get it to sit correctly.

I ran 0 gauge wire from the winch to the solenoid box which I mounted near the engine computer, right behind the passenger side firewall. Eventually I'll run in cab winch controls but for now the remote reaches into the jeep just fine.

Looks good!

Wow, that looks awesome! Glad to hear the install went smooth. Nice lift!

Very nice. Can you still get to the engagement lever somehow or so you always have to power in/out?
