        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)

        • The bumper is rated for up to a 12,000 winch. Unfortunately this one would not work.

        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.

            Install was super easy! Only real problem was the hook.

            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.
