They seem awful big. Do they effect the engine cooling system?

Let's see your Warn 8274 on your cj!

I've had mine on for about 25 years and it has never gotten hot due to the 8274.

I have never had an issue with cooling due to the winch. They are not all that "big" just configured differently than the cheap winches. They are bigger because they have actual gears that run in gear oil inside. No planetary gears to fail. There is a reason the design has been around since 1974, and the predecessor (basically an older version lacking the automatic brake) the Belleview winch was made from 1959-1973. The old adage of "if it works, don't fix it" holds true.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

I haven't installed my yet either. I still need to rebuild it. But you guys aren't worried about someone stealing them? Everyone is just using regular bolts. I've heard many stories around here of winches getting taking off the front bumpers. I plan to use something like this when I install mine.

After the top bolts are tight, weld a piece of steel up against one flat. Those bolts are not coming out with out a grinder to cut the piece of steel off. Never weld on a bolt head.

I've also seen people people weld a short piece of tube over the head of the bolt. Warn Hawse fair leads come with expanding plugs that cover the lower bolts.

My Warn mounting bracket has two bolts that require finagling a 3/4" wrench onto the nuts on the underside of the bumper, which is a very difficult maneuver while laying on your back. I don't see a thief taking the time to do that.

I am told mine was ordered from the factory and shipped as a loose part then installed by the dealer.

Yup, the 8274 was a dealer installed option. An option EVERY Jeep should come standard with.

Technically, it's a YJ, but hey ...It's got most of a CJ front clip? Apparently, UPS just delivered my Synthetic winch rope, so It'll have rope and a hook by the end of the evening....
