This install was a great fit to the COD edition Jeep that uses the AEV front bumper set up as a factory package. Blue Ox people were great and wanted to make a tow bar for this model, had many calls but no COD to make templates, etc. Drove 8hrs each way, 3 nights motel...but got loaner car, Aventa LX tow bar, base plate installed on Jeep, and wired...N/C ...all for a new fitment on a model they did not have. WOW great people.
Winch installed after base plate and went great. Many toad Jeeps out there that want winches, but most bumper/winch plates interfear with standard toad base plate installation. I always wanted a winch on my '08 Rubicon, but would have to make/adapt baseplate install. Blue Ox now has an option and I am pleased and glad I could help them, help others.
