This was a Friday night project a few weeks back. I bolted Clevis mounts to my rear bumper and installed the D-shakles. I know the rear bumper isn't that strong. But, it will due until I can find an aftermarket rear bumper made for the J10 Sportside.
Also, my new Cliffhanger front winch bumper is on the way. It should be delivered this week.

I just had a ARB winch bumper from a Toyota Series 80 put on my 82 Cherokee W/T. Looks great and I also had them put on a Warn 9.5 XP on it. Just got back from Moab and had no problems. I had Advanced Four Wheel Drive in Salt Lake do the work. Initially it was supposed to be 3 days, however that turned into 2 weeks. A lot of fabrication went into it, however it looks like it was made to fit. I will post pictures as soon as I can.

i believe shipping to st. louis was an even $10 for ups ground. that's not that bad compared to the cost of shipping the cliffhanger to me.

Nice looking bumper. What model winch will bolt up to it?

Any standard winch (MileMarker, Warn, Ramsey) that has a 10x4.5 mounting. I think the 15k models need to have slight mods to the bumper to fit, but anything under that will fit.
