I bought a set of "builder tie-ins from DirtBound, then cut them down and notched them to fit the 1.5" x 3" tube. I'll add a gusset later between the tie-in and the wing.

Re: Pre-Production Sneak Peak at Boostwerks Comp Mount

Getting this unit into place was something I knew would be a challenge. I had asked Bryson about this and he told me more
 he highly recommended a jack, such a transmission jack, and that he liked to have killed himself the first time he tried this. I donít have a working transmission jack. I didnít have high hopes for this

Re: Pre-Production Sneak Peak at Boostwerks Comp Mount

Here's what I ended up with for a home-made bumper. Took me way too long - I really don't have all the tools needed to do this the easy way, but it's finished now. Just needs paint and final install. Approach angle will be awesome and I'm happy with how it turned out.

The plastic valence is necessary in order to hide the mount. It hangs lower than the bottom of the bumper. The valence will require some trimming and some different mounting holes. I have that planned out in my mind. I will post up pics as progress occurs.
About to order this after looking for years for the Ramsey 295153 Jeep special equipment hidden mounting kit. The way that kit mounted the winch was flawed and required the special winch that Ramsey made that allowed pulling from mounting feet.

The Boostwerks style is much stronger & better than OEM accessory !
Also bonus that if using the factory bumper... it doesn't have the "Bubba Gump" look extending the bumper out from body.

Have you thought about making a spacer "box" to hold fairlead ?
Could weld extension box to front of this kit allowing the fairlead to be flush as possible to go thru factory bumper. Some gussets for side pulls.

Re: Pre-Production Sneak Peak at Boostwerks Comp Mount

Yes. Some sort of fairlead extension is the plan. I just need to have time to work on it. Life has demanded other priorities this year, and I think I have myself already buried in projects through this coming winter.

Re: Pre-Production Sneak Peak at Boostwerks Comp Mount

I have the Warn Zeon 8-S winch and it doesn't appear that it's compatible with this BWE Comp Mount kit.

Can anyone confirm this, or can I mod the Winch to allow it to work? I'd like to get this kit, but not if I can't use my winch with it.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Pre-Production Sneak Peak at Boostwerks Comp Mount

The comp mount is pretty tight on space, and with the Warn M8 winch the contactor is usually relocated to underneath the hood. Can the contactor/solenoid box be relocated on the Zeon 8-S?

Re: Pre-Production Sneak Peak at Boostwerks Comp Mount

How important is that bridge across the top?

From what I can see in pictures of that winch it appears that bridge is a structural component. Other designs have round steel bars which bridge the two sides. Lacking those round bars I don't see how the Zeon types would have any structural integrity without the bridge, and I don't see how you could mount one on the Comp Mount with that bridge in place
