Short answer- Yes.

Longer answer- I don't remember who, but IIRC there are at least two individuals on this board with winches mounted in ARB's that started life as a non-winch bumper.

So, if a non/winch ARB was installed on an 80 when you got it -

Has anyone either cut/or mounted a winch...on one?
If you were closer I'd swap you my winch one for your non winch bar

YES! We've made an 80 bastard out of you!

If no swap out available-it aint hard to fab. If you're around I'll show ya the 100s Sahara bar winch mount. I am going to copy that set up-tucked up under the 80 ARB

Ive read somewhere that the non-winch version will need to be reinforced heavily where the winch will mount to accomodate a winch. Something about different metal strengths between a winch and non-winch version.

I'll be in NJ December 9th-11th and I can pick up the ARB bar from Koffer and deliver to OH (where I live), if you'd like Jeff...

PM me if you are interested.

Best.

No winch ARB to offer but if you're desperate to get rid of it Texas is closer than NJ! :D

I have not bought the 80 yet - but have committed to buy!

A 1997 - yes locked - with a non-winch ARB and an OME lift...

The lady finally came through with all records of maintenanceand everything - looks good!

Final price to come!

So, yes...you all are screwed - a NEWBIE - has arrived!

Only if you go the route of trying to mount where the winch bar would have-though the steel is not stronger/weaker, just different design resulting in...bla, bla, bla. If one has an ounce of intuitive thinking in ther head-its nodda problemo.
