I installed this winch on my JK in one evening. Because I was mounting it on my stock front bumper using a Rugged Ridge mount, I had to relocate the evaporator canister, which took a grinder and a reciprocating saw. I covered all bare metal up with cold galvanizing spray afterwards. Mounting the winch itself was easy. It is very heavy and should be done with two people if possible. I did it by myself. I have used the winch several times to move logs, get a commercial mower unstuck, recover a tractor that was stuck in the woods, and once for self recovery. The VR8000 is a great product with plenty of power for what I need.
