This looks genuinely fantastic. Clever engineering.
looks over function will not get you out of a jam.
Seems to me everyone is way more concerned with "How it looks"

That is what I did I ordered this complete kit and be sure you order the shackle relocation brackets. They are sold separately. I am using the shackle system to toad my Bronco.

This thing is very heavy duty the pics do not do it justice!! Mine came in today
So what are you using for a tow bar adapter. The only one I can find to fit my towbar is the Warrior Products, which has mixed reviews and uses bolts instead of pins to secure which sounds like a pain.

Also can you verify the shackle hole diameter to be 7/8"? and how thick (width at hole location) is the shackle mount? Thanks, and keep us posted!!

Seems to me most folks are more concerned with how it works with sensors and such. Unless you want to pay $3k for a bumper.

Hopefully some vendor will figure out a way to do something like this that will take the trans cooler into consideration.

Yeah I can do with out the camera and the acc sensor. In all of my years I've never needed these items anyway. Just offer a camera delete and acc delete with the lux package.

This thread certainly blew up, Will try to address as many questions as I see, for now the most asked is the operation of the clutch, I have reached out to my contact at RC to see if we can get more than a "you can".

As soon as one fits with the mod bumper, I’m in. I like this design.

I think the biggest question is are they going to offer a heat exchanger relocation kit or instructions. It doesn't say that it is incompatible with the 2.7 engine and that is an issue!

I forget where, but RC answered this question elsewhere and said you reach up under the bumper to release the clutch. 🤷🏻‍♂️

The bumpers look like they have a crap ton of white heads on it. That shit needs some proactiv

Can you find out if they are going to have stuff compatible with anything other than a 2.3 base? Hopefully something compatible with the modular front bumper

I bought a Badlands winch for my FJ40 this season to replace a failing winch before a trip. The positive reviews and the price were to good not to give it a try. I gotta say so far I love it. The wireless remote, that can be hardwired "if" there was a problem, it comes with all the stuff to remote mount the control box if you want. Perks you'd have to pay extra with other units. And in use, (and it got a great break-in) it worked fantastic! Line speed is great, good pulling power. If I had a gripe it was only having 80ft of line when I was used to more. (but it did come with 3/8" synthetic line).
Which Badlands winch did you get ?? Model?? Thanks....

I think that most winch mount options for the Bronco will affect approach angle depending on high the obstacle is.

Yes, but it can also be a matter of camera perspective.

Considering the price point, the others don't make much sense on a full size vehicle. Perhaps on something smaller, but for a Jeep or a Bronco, on sale at $529 12000# synthetic.

Now if you are the creative sort, you could buy the 12000# wired $319 and upgrade it to synthetic for about $166 for a total of $485. Seems like more effort than it would be worth.

The 9000# wired unit is $339 and there's no added value to getting the smaller unit other than it is 10# lighter.
