Hi all,

Can you install a 10,000lb Warn winch in an ARB bar after it has been fitted to a GU Patrol? I know you can get a 9000lb in and out but the 10,000 is a big beast!!

Hi Leroy
I will start again
I have a 10,000 lb in a ARB bar with no problems.
My bar is a steel one fitted to an 80#
Youmay need to check other ARB models

Leroy,

I have GOOD NEWS for you!!

I have a GU Patrol with a Warn 10,000 lb winch on a ARB Deluxe Winchbar and yes I have taken out the winch and re-installed it without removing the bar from the vehicle. It is not easy as I did it by myself and they are verrrry heavy, no friends to help at the time! Would be much easier with two.

Obviously you need to remove the bottom air deflector/bash plate for this, lift winch onto a milk crate or similar which will fit under the front of your vehicle, and then pull the winch up into position through the cable inspection hole in the top of the bar. You need to lift one end of the winch up higher than one of the chassis rails and slide it up over the rail before you can lift the other end of the winch into the bar frame. From there you can slide it into the correct mounting position and let it rest on the bar whilst you take a rest or find the mounting bolts.

Best of luck with it.
