Winch Mount for RX/EX Front Bumper
AEV’s JL/Gladiator Winch Mount for the AEV Front Bumper is constructed from 1/4” steel and given an e-coat finish for industry leading durability. The AEV Winch Mount tucks neatly between the frame rails and is compatible with our RX and EX Front Bumpers. This winch mount is compatible with GEN 2 AEV Front Bumpers only. If you have a GEN 1 RX Bumper, please give our sales team a call at (248) 926-0256 for assistance.
Please note: This Winch Mount was designed for the Warn Zeon line of winches. The Warn Zeon 10-S is the same model winch offered on AEV’s JL Wrangler and Gladiator conversion packages. Other brand/model winches may also fit if they have overall dimensions that are equal to the Warn Zeon winch and can be mounted in the same orientation. AEV recommends that anyone attempting to install a winch outside of this model, do some independent research prior to purchasing either the winch or this Front Bumper/Winch Mount.

- How do I know if I have a GEN 1 or GEN 2 Front Bumper?
If you have an EX Front Bumper, it is a GEN 2 (there was no GEN 1).
The GEN 2 EX/RX Front Bumper has a one-piece inner stamping and hoop assembly. GEN 1 RX Front Bumpers had a multipiece inner stamping and hoop design.
If the bumper is already installed on the vehicle, the easiest way to tell is by looking at the the area behind the OEM fog lights. If you can visibly see the plug in the back of the fog light assembly, it is a GEN 1 bumper. GEN 2 is closed off (see image below).
The picture below illustrates the one-piece inner stamping/center hoop design of the GEN 2 bumper.
