how wide are the light mount holes in the fairlead?

Asked by joblointheknow from on

Joblointheknow, the Rugged Ridge Performance Winch's fairlead doesn't have light mounts. It's just the winch and the fairlead that mounts to your bumper. Depending on what bumper you have there are light mounts available. Give one of my techs a call and we can get you all fixed up. Hope this helps!
