Ramsey winch mounting help needed

Anyone got a pic of a mount for a RE 8000 worm drive Ramsey? I'm engineering one right now, and I haven't figured out exactly how I wanna build it to clear the drum and the gearbox that drives the worm gears...How does Ramsey mount it? It's gonna go on the front of a CJ5...behind the bumper and above the front crossmember hopefully...It looks like it'll have to be lifted up off the crossmember a few inches to clear. Is that how Ramsey does it? If it does have to be that way, I may build a little storage under it in the otherwise dead space...spot to put a clevis and a snatch block maybe...But I'd really appreciate a description and/or pic. Anyone?

Re: Ramsey winch mounting help needed

i have a re8000 and yes they have to sit up off of the crossmember. i'm not sure you'll have too much room for a little comartment though. i don't have a good pic of it and i don't have a digital camera so i can't help you there.

Can you describe it a bit more...It just bolts to the 8 holes on the front and rear of the two sides of the winch, right?

yes there are 4 bolts in the front and 4 in the rear. the two inboard bolts in the front are the counter sunk bolts that you use a flat head screw driver on. the reason for this is because the roller fairlead mounts over the top of them.

I think Ramsey still makes the mount kit, it would be your best bet.

If your too poor, (in this great Klinton economy), or you just want to make it, it is made with 2 pieces of heavy angle iron, 1 1/2" X 2" X 1/4", that bolt to the winch front and rear, these bolt to two 1/4" plates formed to fit the frame rails. The winch is approx. 5" above the stock front bumper at the bolt holes. The gear housing ends up about 1/2" in front of the grill.

Hope this helps, good luck!
