          WARN VR8-S is great!

          This winch is fantastic. Fits great into my 2017 Rubicon Hard Rock factory bumper and looks amazing. You will need a winch plate and a Vacuum Pump Relocation Bracket. Part number: RH-5011. Would have been great if this site gave you to recommendations and let you know.

          Great wench!

          I was so excited to get this wench in the mail. Looks fantastic ! Then after clearing my bumper off I found that a wench plate is needed to bolt it to the jeeps frame. Ugh. Ordered a wench plate that came with guide and hooks. Now remove the bumper again and try to slip the wench and plate combo in. I did need to loosen the vacuum pump to be able to tighten the bolts but I didn’t have to remove or relocate it which was nice. It all fits nicely and it’s tight. I pulled a buried tundra off the beach last weekend like a stick of butter. Sweet!

          Fits great easiest to leave front bumper off when installing to winch plate. And skid plate. Very happy with end product. I had to drill one hole for bolt found a way to avoid the cut out of front bumper.

          Warn Winch

          It was a little slow receiving the winch. It came well packaged and undamaged. Very nice fit and finish. Easy install. Works great.
