winch and bumper
« on: November 26, 2017, 07:42:54 PM »
 :) Can a guy put a electric winch (8000) and bumper on a newer truck for like $2000.00? I am sure you can spend a lot more, but a workable rig that looks at least OK.
thanks
Carl

Some people will disagree with me, but I've had good, serviceable experience with my $300 Badlands winch from Harbor Freight.

That leaves quite a bit for your bumper.       :tup:

Movin bumpers out of Montana makes an interesting DIY kit for most full sized rigs. You just access to a good welder.

I have not used thier kits but made a similar one from JCR for my Cherokee.

If you can weld, and have/access to one it will save you a bunch of $

I wheel often and have lots of experience with winches. Buy a warn VR series winch, You won't be sorry.
very good price and it a Warn. I picked up My son a warn VR 8000 for $600 new online. If You want to step up a notch get a M8000. They last for ever. You want it to work when You need it.  :twocents:
As for Bumpers Try Bad land Bumpers in Ravensdale. They can build You what ever You want for a fair price. Ask for Cody. Tell Him one of the washington wet wheelers set You.  :twocents:

I think a badlands I ok for light use.  I've burnt one up and used my current one a bit.  If your going to work it often and hard buy a warn as big as you can. You should go 1.5x as much as your rig weighs so you likely need a 10-12k lbs for a full size.

My badlands on a removable recover works on my Cherokee  and trailer loading dead vehicles and such. Just make sure you add a extra deal of cable, snatch block and web strap for strapping off trees.

It looks like if you have access to a welder you can have a sweet bumper and a Warn for a little over a Grand! Well within your budget! Enough extra for some good tire chains and recovery gear!

Try Schrockworks for bumpers  You might get a front and rear for $1600.  Look at ENGO for winches too.  They are someone of an offshoot of Mile Marker (founder of ENGO is the son of the founder of Mile Marker).  I think my 8500 with synthetic line was under $400 online .

 If you have a Tacoma, there are a ton of bumper options out there with good price points compared to other rigs.  Jeeps are the cheapest options, because of volume, but Tacoma are second.

May that for which I prepare never come to pass.

The make of rig would help the discussion a bunch.
