    me kj is cool as ice, no engine cooling issues here and that winch is also an air compressor.

    Ya, nice Rig you have there!
    What does that winch/compressor weigh?

    I'm also running a backbone; have had it for a year now.

    NO complaints. It's solid, mounts solid, and it's 1/4" plate steel reinforced in the right places. If you buy one, you won't be disappointed... especially at the price point. It's a nice alternative for anyone wanting a winch but not the extra weight/price of an ARB or other full bumper replacement.

    winch

    I was wondering about Mounting it on a receiver hitch Plate,then you could move it to the front or back as needed?.Often your nose deep in 4x4 & cant access winch,i figure it would be nice to have a capable Rear Pull..But dont Off road alone?

    Receivers for the front sit kinda low. Would greatly reduce your approach angle.

    The Backbone is a great product, we've installed a couple here . Easy install , does what its suppose to do . If looking to keep the stock bumper, then works great

    Love mine. Took about a month to get it and the directions were for a slightly different hardware kit, but install was easy and it works great. Worth the money!
