Generally yes, but with some majorly serious modifications. I've seen it done.

Warn used to make a mounting system for the 93-98's, but they quit a while back. I got lucky and found one used, but they didn't have the mounting brackets for it. I ended up fabbing up some, and its worked great ever since! I'd post a pic, but I have yet to scan the images in. /forum/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif
Wish I could be more help, but, so you know, there are other options out there.

There is a local ZJ that has the stock bumper and a winch incorporated into the bumper. Personally I like having the ARB bumper when I bump into stumps and trees along the trail. :roll:

Hey you guys thanks for the infomation about the winch. Now I'll have to just decide how much money to put in to the project. Thanks

FWIW, I don't think the Warn custom combo is available for the ZJ anymore - just not enough demand. I fyou want one of those, you'll have to find it used.

I saw one like that her in WA at the Puyallup farigrounds, It looked alot better than a combo kit IMO. The one I saw was running an 8.8 rearend and had an atlasII t/case.

Does anyone have any details on mounting something like this?

Both ARB and Trailready make bumpers for about 700.00. I found one from a company called Kennesaw Mountain Accessories in Douglas GA. It is advertised for 380.00. They make them for both the ZJ and WJ. I have a WJ and am wondering if anyone has seen one in person or have any comments. They sent me a JPG of one on a ZJ and it looked OK. any comments. Keith
