Pretty Sure My Front Winch Will Never Be Stolen -
Just finished mounting my front Smittybilt XCR Winch, to the Smittybilt XCR Off Road bumper on my 2010 (modified) Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport. (Multi-day effort.)
I attempted to mount the winch over several days, (for Hours,) trying to get to the rear grade 8 bolts w/lockwashers. After inumerable attempts and multiple "You've got to be F'ng me," expletives, I had given up on the rear two bolt mounts.
Was just down at my buddies shop (Master mechanic, Aircraft mechanic and Master Fabricator, Welder.) It took about an hour of copious swear words to get two bolts, in place and torqued down. (Glad it was not just me.)
The main reason I went down was to install/replace a rear wheel sensor, that lit my dashboard up like a Christmas tree. (Not so easy in itself.) Still a 20-30 minute job.
Like I said in the OP title. Pretty sure no one will be stealing this winch. Access to the bolt's from underneath, is a No Go.
Good luck trying to Steal it. 🤔😉😂😁
