Mine fit perfectly but I had the same issue with the wire rubbing. Very annoying.
I toyed with the idea of putting washers behind the winch plate where it mounts on the dram rail to pull it forward.
Ultimately I decided not to because I wanted to be able to attach a steel skid plate and I was...
I have my MC 2.5” game changer and MC driveshaft sitting in the garage.
I’m getting ready to install and was wondering if there were any tips you could share? Was it a by the book install? We’re the instructions clear and correct?
Do you recommend an e brake line hanger? I already got the...
I hate to say this but the paint on all the parts other than the bumper shell is awful. Looking at it sideways causes it to come off.
The fasteners themselves are soft and rust easily.
I am planning to get everything sand blasted and powder coated. I am also ordering new bolts.
So far I...
As I mentioned in my original post, the winch will fit with some cutting. I used a grinder to enlarge the bumpers top opening.
It is really easy, just cut a straight line just below the bolt holes of the top front lip. Then trim sides so they match and look nice. I also enlarged the fairlead...
i just finished my install in a cloned rubi 3 piece bumper and it sat perfect UNTIL I put on the winch guard bar. Now I can only turn 3/4 of the way.
I need to either chop the handle or cut off the top and weld it back with a 90 degree turn. Not sure how well it will weld, looks like cast aluminum.
Finally finished up today. I went with an Apex Badlands 12k winch. It’s a large unit so I cut out a little section of the front lip to just after the holes so the bumper could slide all the way in. I think it looks even better without those holes.
The rope hole pass through had to be enlarged...
that winch plate looks like a clone of the Harbor Freight one. I much prefer the one I got in my kit. It attaches directly to the frame rails and sits mostly in the bumper.
I could be wrong but I think the one you have does not. It also means the winch sits on top of the bumper.
Of course this...
Thanks, I just ordered them.
What brake line relocation kit do you recommend for JL and is it worth getting extended stainless steel lines?
I am installing a MC 2.5” game changer kit with their drive shaft on my 2020 Jeep Willys. I want a brake line relocation kit even if it’s over kill.
The tow hook holes on the one I got from e-go bike were perfect. I suspect the video guy got a bad one.
I also saw somewhere that the rubicon bumpers fit the JK and JL but do your research before you buy the one above for a JL.
