All commercially available bars like the ARB Bar will fit a std bolt pattern Chinese 12,000lb, or 9,500lb,My GU has an ARB winch bar, as far as I know these bars are designed to fit Warn winches.
My question is will other aftermarket winches mount in the bar easily?
I have recently bought a cheapo ebay 12000lb winch, but have not received it yet to measure up.
I have the OE Nissan bar made by ARB. I really don't know if the mounting is different, but would be suprised if it was different enough to allow brand X winch fit one bar and not the other. They both mount to the exact same chassis, only the other end of mounts would vary. I do know the differences in the bars though.So BoTie,
which bar do you have: the ARB winch bar, or the ARB made Nissan Gnuine bar.
They might be made by ARB but are not quite the same.
I have the ARB deluxe winch bar and have had a Warn Magnum 9000lb winch and now a Mako Avenger 9500lb. They both fit well with heaps of space both ends. The Tigrz would have to be absolutely heaps longer to not fit the ARB delux winch bar.
The Nisan ARB made one may have some different brackets.
Oldish thread, but instead of startin another one , i came across this....if the free spool handle is in the wrong spot just unbolt the gearbox side of the winch and spin it around, i had to do this with an import 16,800lb winch.There was about 10 small allen headed bolts to remove b4 it would spin.. o i have a factory steel winch bar. not an ARB bar.
