  • 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 http://www.ramsey.com/winches/re12000.html
    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
