Whether you're planning an overland expedition or just out exploring, these bumpers are designed for life off road. Features include a low, recessed winch mount for the ultimate winch protection, and a wrap-around design that offers strength and style.
The main (4) each side mounting fasterners have (3) with weld-on tension head nuts for bolts and one a slot (I guess to handle fab tolerances) with a bolt and nut. The bolt that goes thru this slot was put on the upper, outboard fastener location. TOTALLY LAME! It is hard to get to and could have just as easily been the top, inboard faster that is REALLY EASY TO GET AT!! A case of the desiner either looking at the mirror image or never installed this himself. And the kit should have come with a wireing harness with factory male/female ends so all you had to do is connect them for the OEM fog lights in lieu of cutting and splicing which is totally a backyard hack give the poor crip type connectors which always fail given time. And overall it is not a good feeling to be cutting off brackets on your Jeep. And I can't stand a mix of imperial and metric fastners in an add-on kit. Why not just make them one or the other for crying out load. But once you get over that it's a pretty clean looking bumper for someone who does other things besides rock crawling with their rig.
living up in the 4000th foot level we get snow this is a good thing have with the warn remote winch I don't frezz my.. helping other's getting out
The installtion manuel is not detailed enough. very poorly written. Same goes for the rear bumper. Something was lost in the Chinese translation. Front bumper was supposed to have 8 nuts welded to the bumper where you attach it to the frame of the jeep. 6 were welded in palce a the two most difficult to bolt to where missing...poor quality control. I would not recommend Warn bumpers to anyone unless they really like to be challenged
I am looking to install this bumper on my 2014 Jeep Sahara Unlimited. Will the Warn VR8000 work with this bumper or is there another winch in the 8,000 lb to 10,000 lb capacity you would recommend?

Hey Jeff, the Warn Elite Series Winch Mount Front Bumper with Light and D-ring Mounts would work with the VR8000 winch. Thanks for your question.

In 1948, Arthur Warn founded Warn Industries to construct locking hubs for surplus World War II Jeeps. Ten years later, the Warn winch was manufactured to fill the need for a reliable recovery tool to aid off-roaders stuck in challenging situations. Since then, Warn has grown to offer a wide range of gear with the hallmarks of durability and affordability. 1988 spawned the aftermarket industry's first ATV winch and today their PowerSports line of winches ranks among the most esteemed in the industry and jeepers call on Warn for electric, hydraulic and severe duty components that get the job done.
