Working on a Front Bumper for the 2020 Ultimate Adventure Long Range Jeep #UA2020

Part 17, Back up front for a Warn

Recently, one of our all time favorite winch companies, Warn, announced an upgrade to an old favorite, namely the venerable Warn M8274. The new 8274 ups the ante with a new 10,000-pound rating synthetic rope and other updates. There is lots of additional information here for those who are interested, but chances are we had you at Warn or 8274; we know they had us.

At any rate, Warn's timing with this announcement couldn't be better for us and the 2020 Ultimate Adventure Long Range Jeep. This Jeep will be an SAS-themed, Willys MB-leaning Jeep built with many of the best parts from the aftermarket, as well as the best parts from the past 80 years of Jeep manufacturing.

For this sexy bit of legendary recovery kit, we need to build a stout mount on the UA LRJ. That mount will be incorporated in our new custom front frame rails and raised steering box. Once in place, we can get to mounting other parts such as our reproduction and modified MB grille, as well as an intercooler and radiator for the Cummins Turbo Diesel engine. As in Ultimate Adventure's past, we leaned on our pal and UA alumni, Rob Bonney, of Rob Bonney Fabrication. Rob helped us draw up and cut a -inch plate that will be the beginning of our winch plate and front bumper. Add in a little work with our Swagg Off Road Brake, and some more -inch plate the bumper is in place and well on its way to supporting the new 8274. Check it out.
