Corey from Louisiana sends us some photos of his FJ Cruiser with one of our winch mounts. Corey won this winch mount for his FJ at our Poker Run at the 2015 Jamboree with a killer hand of aces and 10s.. He added a Smittybilt 9500 winch with synthetic rope and a Factor55 Splicer from Steve Springs. He added some lights and grille from Ridgid to top it all off.
We have quite a few customers in the Middle East and one of them is Satish from Dubai who sends us a few photos of his FJ Cruiser on the dunes of his home country. He purchased our FJ winch mount, Engo winch combination package back in 2016 and goes on to say: “Both beautifully performing till date with no issues, very happy. The winch has gone through some extreme use with as much as 15 recoveries in one single trip over a technical set of dunes and still works great.”
Glad to hear it and always happy to hear from our customers around the world!
This was just sent to by one of our customers, Bob from California, that purchased one of our FJ winch mount back in 2014 and installed a Smittybilt XRC9500 winch. While we went to 1″ wide shackle mounts several years ago the design remains pretty much the same. I asked Bob how he liked it 4 years later and he stated “Bumper fits great! Haven’t had to use the winch yet. Maybe someday the FJ will get stuck.” smittybilt
David from Colorado sent us some photos awhile back of his FJ Cruiser and our popular winch mount combination package with a Mean Mother winch and shackles. We custom powder coated it in a matching silver and it all turned out great!
Arnie from Chicago bought one of our powder coated winch mounts for his 2012 FJ Cruiser along with a top of the line Warn Zeon Platinum 10s winch and Van Beest shackle combo package. On his way to Austin he brought his FJ to us so we could install it all! The Platinum is a huge symmetrical winch but our mount still has room for lights when he’s ready and is a super slick setup. Nice rig and a super guy!
Please be aware that you WILL need to do some minor trimming of a bracket and a cross brace above the winch and move the A/C line back an inch or so as covered in the install docs. You will likely need to elongate the mounting holes in the winch tub about 1-16″ to 1/8″ of inch forward to fit this VERY large winch in the tub and scoot it foward to clear the back of the tub.
Mike from California sends us some great pics of his 2014 FJ Cruiser sporting our winch mount bumper along with one of the great Mean Mother Edge 12000 lb winch and Van Beest shackles. Mount and shackles are both coated black.
We have a ton of new customer photos to share and the first one is from John in Arizona. He purchased one of our FJ winch mounts along with some Van Beest shackles then added a Barricade winch with orange rope to match his rig.
He goes on to say: “This is my 2013 FJ Cruiser. Love your product; it is exactly the weight and neat install that I was looking for. Your powder coating finish is excellent; I am very happy….”
David from California sends us some photos of his very cool camo version of our winch bumper along with a Smittybilt winch on his FJ Cruiser.
“For the paint I used two color browns of textured paint, used spray adhesive to hold “actual” oak leaves in place and sprayed ‘bisque’ textured paint over the whole mess. Pulled the leaves before the glue set completely and cleaned up with some solvent. (I worked in ornamental iron for almost twenty years, so I’ve done a variety of finishes). It was luck that bisque color matched the Toyota Sand color so well.
I must add, as a fabricator, your product is very nicely fabricated. I’m an electrician now, but during those years I built everything from scratch including roll cage.”
Victor from California sends us photos of his 2008 Trail Teams FJ with our winch mount along with a Mean Mother 9500 recovery winch and Sirius Pro Series lights. He optioned to have the mount and Van Beest shackles coated in our Teflon black powder coat for a long lasting finish. Turned out great!
Tom from Denver sends us some photos of his 2007 FJ Cruiser with our winch bumper coated in our Teflon powder coating, Engo 10k winch, Sirius Pro Series lights, Factor55 Flat Link and Van Beest shackle combo package. Notice how he decided to mount the solenoid box under the hood. Nice job!
