If you have a 2014 or newer JK Wrangler with the optional steel Hard Rock bumper, you need a Winch to complete your Steel Bumper!
The optional Hard Rock bumper is a worthy upgrade for 2014 and Newer JK Wranglers, but there are no provisions for mounting a winch. Rusty's now has a solution with a bolt-on winch mount for the Hard Rock bumper! No need to throw away the factory bumper in order to add a winch, just add this mount and save.
Rusty's did extensive research when designing this winch plate so that it will work with most popular winches, even going so far as to request drawings from established manufacturers to be sure that ours would work without hassle, and test-fitting several winches in-house before releasing this product. That said, with all of the winches on the market these days it is impossible to test-fit every single winch to be sure it will work. Clearances are tight, and there are a lot of options out there. The mount includes a standard winch bolt pattern and will work with most reputable winch manufacturer's products.
We designed the winch mount to accommodate the Warn Zeon 8, Zeon 10, and the Warn XD winch platform. Other reputable brands (including Superwinch and Ramsey) may or may not work, but these and / or import winches may require grinding or other modifications to fit.
This winch platform will NOT work on the following winches:
Warn Zeon 12
Warn Endurance 12
Warn PowerPlant 9.5
Warn PowerPlant 12
Warn 9.5 CTI
Warn 9.5 CTI - S
SuperWinch Rock 9.5
If your winch is not listed and you are unsure of fitment, please refer to Warn's website and locate the Zeon 8 Dimension Page to ensure your winch will fit. If you are still unsure of fitment, please call our customer service team.
This kit includes: Hard Rock Jeep Bumper Winch Mounting Plate, Evaporator Relocation Bracket, and Mounting Bolts.
