His grill and winch are fine. When I added a Warn 9.5ti to my Mopar bumper, I had to remove 2 of the bottom clips to get it back on.



Knowing what I know now, if I were to do it over, I would have gone with the M8000, or XD9000. Something lower profile.

You don't need a front plate? They make a plate mount that would cover it up until you need to use the winch. Looks like you pull 2 pins and the plate mount comes off to use the mount.

After reading the thread about the snorkel draining 30hp I doubt ill ever want one. The Jeep is already underpowered enough without the snorkel. Ill just stick to mudding and no water.

i dont think it affects non supercharged motors due to them not needing as much air as a forced induction setup. i didnt notice any power loss and according to my mpg gauge (i know its not super accurate) i got almost 2 mpg better . and i dont have to worry about 10" of water hydrolocking my motor

I just called to change my snorkle order to a hardline kit rather than the basic rubber. I like they way yours looks compared the the rubber ridged hose.
