Is anyone running this combo? I am looking to pull the trigger on both tomorrow. I want to make sure the Quadratec Stealth fits and the factory steel skid fits the Rusty's winch plate?

Thanks in advance

Nice I ordered mine up today and should be here Thursday! Any tips on getting the inner bolts on?

This is what I used to torque the bumper bolts. Torqued 7 of 8 from the top using the socket and 3/8" to 1/2" adapter> the last nut R/H bottom inboard torqued from the bottom adding the 3" wobble extension. And yes the factory skid plate bolts back in place as the bumper is not moved forward using Rusty's plate. I added the Rock Jock (Currie) Tow Bar Mounting Plate instead.

Thanks! I have a couple of extensions and debating going get a flex head ratchet tomorrow before it all gets here Thursday. Also what is the torque for all 8 bolts?

How tight was your winch plate fitting in there? I’m trying to installe mown now and can’t get it to fit between the frame it’s so tights. And I did take out the inner frame horn mounts. Any suggestions?

It fits tight, which is a good thing. Helps to have something to set it on, so it is as level as possible. I happened to have motorcycle lift, put a board across and jacked it up between the frame rails. Once it was started evenly I tapped it into place with a dead blow hammer.

I wound up jacking it up some and hitting it with a dead blow as well. Finally got it all together.

How much clearance is there between the back of the winch and the grill? My SmittyBilt X2O is pretty close.

It’s tight but you can remove the grill if needed.

I'm looking at a Rock Jock tow plate. Is your JL have a Steel Bumper? So the Rusty winch place will work well?

Use some oil or lube.
