nice video. I would have given much of the same advice. I trimmed the plastic bumper caps last so I could better visual it. The front camera relocation is definitely best done during winch install since the grill has to come off And that can be dicey once the winch is there. love my setup, used the @Mountains2Metal camera relocation kit.

Do you think the camera relocation can happen without removing the whole grill? Thoughts??

Brian, great video, as always. I admire your professional and precise approach.

You mentioned a mounting system for amber low-slung lights.
I have 2 BD Squadrons mounted low, center of the bumper opening, on either side of the ACC block.
Now there are no Bronco bolts in those locations to readily do what I did.
It pained my soul to do it, but I drilled two holes on the upper radius fascia part of that opening and installed.
The holes are not seen nor exposed due to the shape of the bumper.
But it still bothered me to take a 7/16 (or whatever size it was back then) drill bit to a brand new vehicle.
They line up and shine out nice in that big RC mounting apparatus, are semi-hidden from view, and are protected now due to the mass of the mount and winch sitting on it.
I don't have a great pic on my PC here, but do have a few on my phone I can post up if you are curious.
Pics below are prior to the whole winch install, obviously.

Hello Members,

Just complete the Rough Country High Winch install. Here's my thoughts. Enjoy!
I'm really not into videos so much but this is a very good one......thanks
I'm getting ready to install the same RC mount to then mount a front 2" receiver to it so I can use my winch on front or rear and not carry the winch for daily driving. I'll only carry the winch when headed off-road.
Wish someone would come out with a front receiver hitch mount for the bronco mod bumpers!
I also have a front receiver on my '22 6.7 Tremor so one winch will service both vehicles front and rear.
I'll post on here as I get the project finished.
The RC mount arrived today!

So many folks have talked about the receiver option. I like the idea and would love to see what you come up with in the future! Thank you!

Here a couple I just took. Not super HD quality stuff but you can get the gist from it. A ratchet wrench is the ticket for tightening the brackets to the bumper, then the lights to the brackets.

I like it. Well done indeed. I'll have a look at see if it's something I' want to do. Looks good to me!

I just ordered this mount and the 12000 lb winch. I'll be installing it on a capable bumper. Pics will be posted.

overall great video, the first few seconds were without sound so that had me scratching my head.

I am either going with the RC winch mount or the Mabbet one.
I've seen the Mabett prototype. It looks good as well. They do nice work and am looking forward to a review on it.
