Will Iron Man Bulbar be able to fit a Zeon 12000lbs winch

Post by Johann 1984 » 15 Jan 2015 20:29

Hi Guys,

Will a Zeon 12000 Warn winch physically fit into a Iron Man Steelbumper.Secondly, say it fits, will I mangle up and bend the bulbar if it actually pulls in something of substantial load and weight.

I just read that most of the bulbars we fit can tolerate no more than a 9500lbs winch.

If you have 12000lbs winch, what bulbar do you have? Which ones will be able to handle such power.

Thanks

I agree with Tinus - the winch should be on a separate winch plate which has main attachments to chassis and not bulbar. Bulbar should not take the strain. There is no reason why the 12000 winch should not fit, in my set up there is plenty of room behind the steel bumper/bulbar... but I suppose it just depends on your design :mytwocents:
