winch mount

What do most of you use for a winch mount for a CJ7? I bought a Warn HS9500i. Do I need a new bumper, or will it fit between the grille and the bumper? Where do I get the mount?
Thanks

Re: winch mount

You can buy a mount from just about anybody (Q-tec, 4WPW, 4WDH, etc.) for less than $100. A local welding shop can probably fab one cheaper plus no shipping. I'm anxious to see what others have to say because I'm at the same crossroads.

Can you fix it?
I got a welder and a grinder. Heck yeah I can fix it.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Guess it had already gone through the first time.

Re: winch mount

See the attachment to this message to see the new Warn i8000 monunted on my CJ-7 using the standard Warn mounting plate. This plate is aviailable from any Warn dealer and is a simple "U" channel piece of iron with a cut-out for the rollers and predrilled mount holes plus riser spacers and a nut/bolt set.
There are dozens of non-Warn mounting plates which can be included in a bumper and/or feature brush guards, etc.
The Warn mounting plate bolts to the frame sides (with one squeeze tube on each side) and to the pre-existing holes in the front cross-member. The spacers raise the mounting plate off the frame slightly.

Re: winch mount

hey there jaffer..
i dont know where you live.. but i would advise you to tac weld those top 4 nuts down.. i live on a marine corps base.. and have known several jeepers that got theres stolen on base.. i didnt.. since i tacked them down.. just enough to keep the common thief away.. but when i removed it. i just used a hammer and a screwdriver.. came right off..
you can also buy a multi mount for like 25 bucks... then just mound a reciever hitch on the front and back.. run seperate power and ground cables.. for a cool set up.. Elusive and i made one.. then i saw the one forsale for cheap.. and well.. could have just bought it.. saved some time.. will have pics of his on the website this coming week..

survival is instinct, but living takes guts
