  • How to mount this winch

    Has anyone here used the ramsey RE 12000 or 8000 winch on a CJ. I got a very old ramsey winch DCB246R is the modle number but it is almost identical to the new RE series winches. this is what it looks like
    The problem is because of the round assembly that hangs down on the left hand side I cant use a traditional winch channel that is shallow. Does any one have any pics or some ideas. I will probably custom make this my self but I am looking for some ideas. something like the mount for a warn 8724? The mounting holes do need to be up higher to clear that round housing down on the bottom left side of the winch.

    i was somewhat in the same boat as you were 4 months ago, i have rump bumpers back (w/tire carrier) and front, but i had to custom fit a warn winch plate to the front and weld it in, while at the same time allowing my power-steering to attach to it as well.

    all in all i just had to bite the bullet and buy a new winch plate and just go from there with a MIG welder

    i can post pics if you want, no digi camera yet. still putting back for the SOA =]

    good luck, hope this helps some
