We have a 2015 Rubicon Unlimited on the way and will use it as a Toad.
I want to have a winch too with the stock bumper.
Has anyone done this or have info?
All help will be appreciated, Thanks. quadnkev:)

Lots of different ways to go, factory Mopar, Rugged Ridge, you pick a name there is probably a mount to run a winch. Look at your local dealer or pick a catalog and there is a mount for the factory bumper.

Tow bar of your choice. I had one already.

You could run any kind of winch you want on the bumper, lots of plates out there to use a winch on the stock bumper.

My old man runs this blue ox on his 13 Unlimited. Doesnt interfere with the bumper at all.

Its low, under the bumper basically so doesnt interfere with a top mounted winch. Install was super easy.


The other way to go is a new bumper that has shackle mounts and use those to tow with. Check with the manufacturer to see if theirs are rated for this. I am pretty sure Poison Spyder says their's are OK to do this with.

THIS! I bought the Currie tow bar mount, but wish I would have gone with the bumper posted above.

Also, get the Cooltech lighting kit. Don't even bother with anything else for lights.

Also also, I personally think blue ox is way over rated and way over priced.
