Factory winch

Did any CJs come with a winch from the factory? If so, what brand/model did they come with?

2 different winches were offered as options that I know of. A Ramsey, and a Warn 8274.

Some of the Warns don't say Warn on them but Jeep Special Equipment. I've come accross 2 of those in the last month. One sold on eBay (I didn't win it) and the other was on a CJ with a plow near my house. I ried to buy just the winch but he sold the entire jeep as a package.

I just dropped in to see what condition my condition is in.

I have a 1969 CJ5 with a Ramsey mounted on it. My Jeep was equipped with a camper at some point and I believe it came from the factory that way. There's no way to be sure because the camper Jeeps had no numbers on them that I know of. I do have most of the mounting equipment, all of the holes look factory and I have the V-6, 4:88s with power-lok on the rear. A factory promotional photo of a white camper Jeep has the exact Ramsey winch that I have. There seems to be little information available with respect to what may have been factory as opposed to dealer installed options but the factory promotional photo leads me to believe my winch may have been installed at the factory. Does anyone have more information?

There is a big difference between coming from the factory, and ordered through the dealer.

You may have been able to buy a jeep brand new with a winch, that doesn't mean it came from the factory with it, but much more likely means the dealership sold it as an add on, and mounted it prior to final delivery.


I used to be a people person, until people ruined it...

I don't believe any original winch mounted Jeep came from the factory that way. It would have been counterproductive to take the additional time, effort and wiring to mount a winch on the assembly line as they were being assembled. It would simply take too long and be cost prohibitive. Dealership add-on of approved Jeep accessories only. Heck, even if you ordered a Jeep with a soft top back in the day it would not be installed at the factory. Shipped in a box for the Dealer to install as part of the new vehicle prep work.
