winch fitting

I am currently assessing the winch/winch bar options available for the 80
series. I have been told that an ARB winch bumper will not accept a
Milemarker H12. Has anyone else had, or overcome this problem? Any
suggestions for alternatives?, bearing in mind I would like to keep the
'look good' part of LC ownership fairly intact. Hence the preference for
ARB.

Roman,
I have looked at the shots today, I favour an ARB bumper, although your
mods would suit both. I have found out that a Milemarker 12 will not fit the
ARB bumper. I have also found out that some of the ARB's while well made,
are not so strong. They can be strengthened while the minor mods to fit the
winch are being carried out. To my delight I also found that you can run a
Milemarker using an independant electric PS pump, giving you winching
without the engine running, at a much lower current draw than an electric
winch. Right now this is my favoured route. You could also fit the electric
PS as a backup to the main pump.
As a point of interest, there is not an ARB bumper that is air bag
compatible for the 80 series.
Regards, Clive.

Hi Clive,
Where is this info? Something useful to add to the site later.
Have you considered the TJM bumpers? Aren't they supposed to support
MileMarker winches with a fitting kit?
PS - heard back from Frogs Island - they are sending through a catalogue -
only took 3 days!.. I'm impressed.
