Warn 9.5CTI into ARB Defender Full Bumper Help

Hi I recently acquired a warn 9.5cti that I want to put into my current bumper. It seem that the winch is not going to fit the normal way (legs facing forward)

So my question is. Has anyone added a winch tray to the ARB Bumper? Other than trimming and welding in a piece of 1/2 steel plate is there anything I may be missing?




Was told by a warn dealer this would fit. Turns out it would have been easier to fit an 8274 like I had originally planned....

Sounds like an awful lot of work and expense after you go through the motions of buying a new winch cradle, (presumably) paying someone to weld it into place, then having to re-powdercoat or paint the bumper. The ARB's are not set up for winches with integral solenoid/contactor packs, as you've discovered. They're simply too tall for a feet-forward mounting position.

If I were you I'd just sell of that winch and replace it with something like a ZEON with a relocation kit, or a 9.5XP. OR just ditch the ARB and replace it with a bumper that is built to take some abuse, as well as house your existing winch.

I have a CTI in my ARB. Ran into same problem. solved it this way

1-ditch the cosmetic cover over the motor
2-go to home depot and get a foot of 1"x .25" flat iron stock bar
3-while at home depot, replace the 4 mounting bolts that come with the winch, with bolt about an 1/2" longer
4-cut the bar in half to create 2 spacers. this is needed to offset the winch where it will rub against the internal arb cross brace on the driver's side (LHD)
5-create a template and drill holes in the spacers you've made to match the mounting feet
6-install winch horizontally through the bottom holes

you're done

yes. non-integrate solenoids are the preferred route. you have plenty of options now.

I just got a $27 Ramsey winch cradle from Northern Tools and trimmed the forward outboard corners to match up with the inside of the ARB bumper. I then bolted it into place using some angle brackets and mounted the winch with the solenoid pack at the top.

I have this combination and it was tight, but it fit. Not sure if ARB changed the bumper over the years our not.

I'll get some pics this weekend (if it warms up - supposed to be 13 degrees here tomorrow) and post them up. Pretty easy modification.

Not sure if it is how my bumper is mounted (too far back on the frame) or whether the newest version of the 9.5CTI is just larger but the measurements on mine made it about 2in too tight down there to mount like that.

here are some pics of my Warn 9000 installation - you can't see the trimmed front corners of the plate but its attached by the two bolts that hold the roller fairlead and the two L-brackets at the back corners. There is a lip on the forward edge of the plate like the one on the back and it bears on the inside surface of the front of the ARB bumper.
