Ya, well that wasn't noted when I purchased mine... So mine should fit. How's that for Autism?!?I hope everyone noticed that this isn't compatible with the 2.7l engine. Didn't go through every thread but I see some with build signatures talking about installation.
What makes it "work" or not work is related to the bash plate they included with the fairlead.Ok. Trying to figure out what bumper i need to order with my badlands for this to work
How is that rotary phone working for you? I hope you have at least left the telegraph behind. Just because YOU don't need them doesn't mean that can't be extremely beneficial. The ACC I do believe is making people lazier drivers as they don't have to pay as much attention to the road but then again without it people are already doing that.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.
Thanks for linking that. I saw his review on the RC site. Was hoping it was documented elsewhere. I know RC makes some iffy products. Wonder if any other brand winches will work.What makes it "work" or not work is related to the bash plate they included with the fairlead.
The mount will fit regardless of the bumper but the fairlead bash plate fits up with only the specific bumper. The one person on youtube who documented his install (2 parts plus a faq) didn't use their bash plate. He cut out the fairlead opening from the rough country bash plate, had an opening cut with a water jet on his existing bash plate, and fit the fairlead to the front of it.
So in theory you should be able to get it to "work" with any bumper. You just need to be willing to do some work or work with a local job shop to get the work done. The key part of their kit is the mount for their winch that works well with their winch to position the controls where you can reach them with the hood open.
Am I the only one who feels like this sort of trimming will both affect crash safety, and possibly cause the force exerted by the drivetrain to either warp the frame or damage the front diff in some way. From my experience with the RS, you want to bolster the mounts holding the various diffs/drivetrain pieces in place, not trim them back. It's a common issue for RS's with performance tunes to produce enough torque to actually twist the PTU (center diff) and destroy it, quite dramatically. One of the popular mods from Mountune is for reinforcing that mount:
