Its a Mile stone SI 12000# Winch
will that fit on the ARB Bumper as well?

Never heard of the brand. I would recommend staying with something that has some type of track record to help make a choice. There is a trade off between budget and reliability that you can read about to find a winch that fits your needs.

Nearly any planetary gear winch will fit with the possible need for some spacers such as these. I had to use them to mount my 12.5k Superwinch and a 10k T-max (Smittybilt) in another truck.
Found a Great used ARB Front Bumper for MY LC 80
with Winch Access and Bull bar,
One side had a slight Bent , appr. 2" squizzed in.
I will pick it up Tuesday again......found a great Welder

WHOAAA!!!!! What a great deal, lucky guy.
I was about to tell to see mounting sizes specifications for the Mile Marker 12000 and compare it with the W 12000, but looks like you found it out. I used to have a W10000 on a 40.
:clap: & :cheers:
Good score! I had a feeling you intended to say mile marker and not mile stone.

It appears you had to use a mounting plate, correct? Any winch above 10k lbs needs to be mounted feet forward in the bumper which is how ARB designed the bumper, especially if they are going to be used near their capacity. If that mounting method is not possible, the largest standard grade8 or metric class 10.9 bolts should be used in every location possible.

It's hard to tell in your pictures but the top of the fairlead should be right up against the protruding mounts in the bumper. The two side roller pins should then be replaced with bolts and the fairlead secured to the bumper.
