I just purchased a 2005 LC100 GXL with this exact bar on it
It has a 12 or 13mm Alloy plate to mount a winch on.

I just wondered if anyone knew what rated winch i can fit?
Is it a max of 9000lb?
What if i mount a 11000lb and just be careful?

I know a steel bar would be better, but i'm not a young kid out playing winch games on weekends, it will just be there for security.

Is there a winch that is recommended for this bar?
Or can i fit any generic winch?
I say that looking at the 4 roller opening fitted to the one in the pic above, where as so many just have an alloy surround.

Thank You

Hi Salty Dog,

I can not help with the direct question, but the query about the alloy surround is they are fitted to winches with synthetic rope.

I have changed my winch rope to synthetic and there is a significant weight difference.

Thanks mate
I was going to get a rope winch
Had plenty of cable winches for the boat, and on friends rigs, they can be a handful.

Salty,

If there is a 9000lb limit and you fit an 11000lb winch and use it "carefully", how will you know how hard it is pulling? Ie, how will you know if it pulling over 9000lb?

I think you're on the right track - ascertain if there is a the limit and if there is, don't exceed it.

Cheers

With my internal torque wrench Frank ;)
I have read (on the net, so who knows) they have a 9500lb limit?

So a 9500lb limit could be a 11000lb winch from Kings by the time you de-rate the over stated sales specs :)

I do appreciate your point, no doubt.
What i meant is i'd most likely use it on flat ground situations
But we all know, when you do get stuck, it will be half way up a 45 degree hill.
In in deep sand or mud

alloy bolt on surround is used with dynemma synthetic poly rope.

Steel cable still needs the rollers

I won't comment about strength of winches vs the mounting point they use.
Heavier the winch more support it needs if it ain't there something will potentially give

G,day Salty, I have a warn 8000 lb winch on my 80s.It is on the original alloy bar with a steel winch mount behind, fixed to to chassis not to the bar,the chassis takes the weight. I have dyneema, the rollers are ok for as long as they're not rough,
The winch has been used a bit and was enough to pull the cruiser and our van out of a sandy river bed, we used 90m of rope with a snatch block fixed to a tree,the van and tug weigh around 4.7t and the warn did it easily, it's never damaged the bar,has been upgraded,and serviced twice and is 24yrs old. So when you get your winch get a snatch block too. Regards Keith.

Appreciate the advice :)

When i went to TJM, they said they would have to add a cradle that mounted to the chassis also

Yep...you will need the cradle so winch is connected to the vehicles chassis. 9000lb winch is heaps. Get a good pulley as well.
