      Disappointed in the quality of electrical components. One of the 5-pins on the female side broke off. Zero customer service on replacement. Was told I have to buy a whole new unit for $549.99.

    do you have to uncoil all the rope to feed the hitch/clamp thru the bumper? you have some clamps that are bolted in pics and this one that I received is solid and not able to disconnect from the rope.

    • The winch line should be removed and fed through the bumper. A one piece hook was added to increase strength.

    Will this fit on the red rock 4x4 stubby attack bumper? (J126730)

    When mounting this on a 14 Rubicon X (Hard Rock bumper), will I need to order an off-center or center mount kit? I know I have to order it from another source but need to know if this is center or off-center mount.

    Will this fit on a 16 JK Unlimited Backcountry Edition AEV bumper?

    • This will work as long as you have the winch plate on your bumper.
