"I bought a winch for the front of my Jeep and was faced with ordering a winch plate or a new bumper. The XRC bumpier was a good choice. It looks great on the Jeep, fits the XRC 8 winch perfectly and is well built. The bumper is about 65lbs and paired with a 65-80lb winch and d-rings (5lbs) you should expect about a 3/4-1" drop in the front. 1-3/4" coil spacers will lift it back up and fix the stock jeep rake. (INSTALL WITH WINCH) Install the fairlead FIRST, then the winch, then mount." —Jonathan O from Anderson, IN bought a Smittybilt XRC Bumpers for a 1997 Jeep Wrangler.
