Title: Yeah or Nay?
Post by: foldsct on June 18, 2017, 11:29:54 AM
Is this the type of thing I should be looking for?  Is it going to be too heavy for my front end?

So many things to learn...............  :smile:

It will be heavier that what you have, but typical of what you will find for a bumper with a winch. Depending on what springs you have you will most likely see,you front end drop a bit. I have the rock krawler 2.5 springs, and they took into account of the weight of a winch with there springs, so my front end is actually slightly higher than my rear because I still have stock bumper and no winch yet. I have seen this one posted for a while, it seems to get reposted every few weeks so it looks like a newer post. Not sure what the deal is.

Its a Smittybuilt bumper with used Qtec winch. I personally dont like the idea of buying a used winch and there are much nicer bumpers out there.

I still have stock everything!! If it's been on for awhile that's not a good sign.

Since I'm getting negative vibes, I'll pass then.  Thank you!!

To be fair Quadratec will prob charge another $250 to ship the bumper and winch but thats besides the point

Between the bumper and winch your front may sag a bit but once you add on the rear bumper and oversize tire carrier it should lvl out a bit....lol

The jeep may sag, but fuel consumption will rise...doh.

If you do buy it I'd suggest replace the rope. Preferably, but not necessary, with synthetic. I wouldn't trust that one was properly maintained.

ExtermeTerrain usually has free shipping, even for oversized, heavy items. My Barricade sliders came with free shipping. They have some pretty nice winch/bumper combos with free shipping.

I think its a great way for a new person to get started. The Q-9 only came out 3 years ago so how bad could it be. ( the same one I use) The bumper looks like it hasnt been hit. Its closer to you? No shipping ! It fits.  Make him an offer youd like to pay. He can only say one of two things.    FjR68
