Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone has a winch set up with the turnkey front skid plate? It doesn't look like its going to work with how high the skid plate comes up.

I was thinking of modifying the skid plate and installing the roller fairlead in it, but it looks likke the plate is too thin and would get damaged if I do that. Any suggestions?

I guess no one has this combo yet...

I'm going to install the winch tomorrow so I'll follow up with modifications I had to do to the skid plate. The skid plate looks like it will protect the winch pretty good.

That would be sweet! You would have to put some thinker reenforcment where the fairlead would be though. I would be sceptacle to add one to your skid plate with the thickness it is now. Don't get me wrong it does fine for what it is designed for now... I just think without a brace it would bend the skid plate on those nasty angled pulls. I'll let you know what I come up with.

It worked. I just had to drill a couple holes in the bracket for the fair lead and mount it about 1.5" higher. I also redrilled holes in the skid plate where the torx bolts go. Also had to bend the skid plate a bit to get the main bolts to fit. The winch plate bolts to the bumper with with A u bolt looking thing and isn't an ideal fit for the skid plate. I'll post some pics when I can get to my computer.

Here's a few pics of the turnkey skids with my winch. Took a little extra time to modify the winch, but well worth added protection.
