    Evo quarter pounder

    Evo quarter pounder install with d rings Install question... on my 2007 jku is it necessary to cut off the front crash bar or can it be mounted with it in place...? Also with this year jku i shouldn't need to replace the vacuum correct..? Any help would be appreciated as this purchase is about to be made and want to prepare as much as I can before it gets here for a quick install... I also am order the gen 2 warn vr8 any input on the install with these two items together as far as install or the setup in general would also be nice please post pics if you have this setup or any of the gen2's... the revolution stinger will be purchased with taxes getting excited for some new upgrades it's been a while...

    I just installed mine.

    Crash bar has to come back. I actually took it fully off. No need to replace/relocate vacuum on an 07. I found it easier to keep the winch off and start installing the Bumper. Then put the winch on and get everything tighten up. I was glad I installed the stinger on the Bumper when it wasn't on the jeep. I love mine!

    Yep, the crash bar has got to gooo. So worth it though for the EVO 1/4 Pounder.

    As mentioned crash bar has to go and the vacuum pump doesn't need to be relocated.

    Chop that nasty ass crash bar off, Install the bumper (if you're doing the stinger I installed that on the bumper first, notched the outside of the frame horns), leave it loose on all 8 bolts to give yourself some working room.

    Then toss the winch in there, bolt it down and torque. Run the wires under the grill, inside of the body mount, up with wiring harness on the passenger side up to the batter and make you connections there. Then torque all 8 of the bolts on the frame horns.

    Gen2 10S fits like a charm. Use the fairlead tab to position it centered on the bumper.

    Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

    Thank you... how did you mount that light bar... the bumper didn't look like it had much room to mount a light bar...

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
