Thinking about buying another winch to replace the old warn 9000i I have and I was wondering what my options were if I kept it stock (the bumper)
The heck it is ! My truck was a very early SG-outfitted vehicle from out west (bumper, sliders, frame sliders, rear 2" receiver, steering guard, diff guards, etc all from SG).That is how mine is, Lav yours is a knock off kidding of course, I didn't realize SG made bumpers to accommodate warns?
Negative...I'll never own a Warn personally. Have seen too many fail. The only Warn I'd get is faster than I like a winch to be(8274).Guess I'm using old knowledge. Used to be that they were cheaper alternatives to the warn.
True, not always. That is odd though, was it the mounting pattern that didn't fit, or the location of the fairlead hole?Not always interchangeable however. I bought a Superwinch Talon and a warn spec bumper. It didn't fit so bumper got sold to Jonesy and I got another bumper from L8 that's built for Superwinch.
What's special about Superwinch to me? Factory is about 45 mins from here. Easy repair potential! Not that it's needed it.
