  • High-Strength
    Made from 3mm, 5mm, 6mm & 8mm High-Strength 350 Grade Steel. Mounted to the chassis in multiple locations to ensure recovery forces are evenly distributed and don't overload the chassis mounting points. Through FEA computer modelling and 12 months of real world testing we've delivered a high-strength winch mounting system that you can rely on when you need it most.

    Maintain OEM Appearance
    The WK2 Hidden Winch Mount can be installed behind your bumper and lower front fascia, maintaining the great looks of your Jeep Grand Cherokee. Then if you want to, you can easily remove the lower front fascia when heading off-road.

    Low Installed Weight
    Only 12.85kg when fully installed. This is extremely light when compared to a Bull Bar which often weighs 40kgs (alloy) - 90kgs (steel).

    Lower Winch Position
    Our lower winch position provides numerous benefits. Ability to install taller winches, better cooling to the radiator, doesn’t interfere with license plate mounting, as well as positioning the winch directly between the frame rails for maximum strength.

    Maximum Approach Angle
    Since our design doesn't extend past the front of your WK2, the maximum approach angle is retained.

    Compatible With Adaptive Cruise Control
    Through careful engineering & testing we've delivered a winch mount that is compatible with the adaptive cruise control system on all WK2 models.

    Compatible With Parking Sensors
    Through careful engineering & testing we've delivered a winch mount that is compatible with parking sensors on all WK2 models.

    Compatible With Our Entire Product Line
    Already own our WK2 Lower Front Guard, WK2 Sump Protection Plate, WK2 Recovery Hooks, WK2 Recovery Points or WK2 Nudge Bar? We’ve designed the WK2 Hidden Winch Mount to easily work with all of our products.

    Compatible With Excellent Front Recovery Options
    Can be installed with OEM Tow Hooks or Chief Products WK2 Recovery Hooks & WK2 Recovery Points, (which are engineer rated to 4,500kg [1.5 GVM]).

    Industry Leading Corrosion Protection
    We utilise E-Coat (Electrophoretic Coating) to provide the very highest corrosion protection available for steel automotive parts. Deposited from a water-based solution using a high voltage DC charge, the process coats all wet surfaces with an extremely tough and highly corrosion resistant finish that is unlike any other process.

    Real World Testing
    There aren’t many off-road companies who own a WK2 as their daily driver, or regularly take it all over Australia in search of off-road adventures. In our opinion, that extra testing and passionate attention to performance leads to superior products.

    Top Quality Finishing Touches
    We include all the details that matter. High tensile zinc plated bolts for maximum strength and corrosion resistance. Wedge-Lock washers to create bolted joints that are extremely resistant to loosening. Anti-Seize for bolted joints that are resistant to seizing. A Chief Products Shop Rag for all the dirty jobs around the garage. All packaged with extreme care to arrive safely and looking great.
  • Bolts into existing mounting points in the frame, no drilling or cutting required. Installation of lower front fascia requires cutting a hole for the winch fairlead.
