winch mounting and a forward tilting frontend?

I think I saw this on a previous post where CJ7Taz had a winch mounted low enough to work with the AJ's one piece frontend. I was wondering if that bumper/mount was bought or made. I am considering a similar setup and wanted some details. I also considered using a front bumper with a reciever hitch and reciever mounted winch. The advantage would be that you could use your winch from the front or rear. I don't know if the reciever hitch would be up to a really hard pull though. Has anyone has made a really hard pull with a reciever mounted winch?

It's custom built. I might still have the Autocad file somewhere but it's pretty simple.



Here it is with the AJ's front end tilted forward:

Re: winch mounting and a forward tilting frontend?

what kind of winch do you have? I looks really low profile, or is it hiding behind something.

get a side shot of taz's bumper, if he actually wheeled that jeep it would act like an anchor. Taz why don't you bring it out and actually wheel it at the badlands bash.

Here's a better picture of the bumper. Sorry, it's still got the cable wrapped around it since the frame change, I'll be hooking it back up this weekend. It's a Warn XD9000, no "i".

[/ QUOTE ]I guess I have no manhood shortcomings I'm compelled to compensate for. I'm using it for it's TRUE purpose, exactly the way Willys advertised it. If you want to "wheel" yours, I have no problem with that but I'll thank you to lay off mine which gets me to and from those automotive construction sites. Even when the sand/salt trucks were shown on the 6 O'clock news slid of the highway and laying on their sides, the ice was so bad there was no mail delivery and houses burn to the ground and people died because the emergency vehicles couldn't respond, I got to work. I work a job where, during shutdown, I absolutely, positively have to be there, and I am.

Any more questions, or are we straight?
