Worst case is remove the ARB bolts and slide the bar out about an inch, then it will go. Anything is easier than removing it AND the bar as an assembly.ParadiseCruiser said:Bob - Yup, can be done - from below as John stated - but it definately takes two guys to monkey the thing around 'cause it's a very tight fit until you get it past the sheet metal below the grille and out of/into the well of the bumper.

Cruiserdrew said:Yep-I comes right out-plenty of room. It's the FJ60's that have the crossbar in the way and need to be placed in the bumper, then the whole assembly mounted on the truck.

I took the 12k out of my 80 myself.......got my buddy to stuff it back in.....by himself
It's much easier to just mount it to the bar, pick it up and slide it on. No need for help.
I did something similar and can be done by one person. When I installed mine I did it with three ratchet straps, only two are needed but I used one more for safety. Very easy to do and you can easly move it around and small adjustments if needed.dfmorse said:For the group:
Assuming that you have the ARB with the bar across the top; u can use the bar as a tie point for a rope. Use the old half hitch method around the bar to lower the wench to the ground. Do the same when reinstalling. It helps to have two people to do this. Label all leads; which will be disconnected be removal of same. Steve Ciotti and I did this together a few months ago.
