Barricade 9500lb Winch Install

After installing the Barricade Trail Force HD Bumper on the JK we knew a winch needed to go on to fill the spot in the center of the bumper.  We knew we wanted a 9500lb winch but didn’t want to break the bank, after some research and comparing we decided to go with the winch that matches the bumper.

Since our Jeep’s bumper has an integrated winch mount that can be accessed without removing anything this installation is simple.  The first step is to mount the roller fairlead to the front of the bumper using the bolts provided.
