Can you send us a link? Never heard of a direct mounting winch for the commander. The only person making a bumper that will hold a winch for the commander is 4.7.

Some people make the hitch mounts that go into the hitch receiver on the back of the Jeep. I considered one before I knew 4.7 was making his.

so this winch does not mount on to the commander as some websites are saying?

I just called and spoke with Mike in the sales department over at Superwinch and he said they dont have anything specific for a Commander. The do have a 9,000 lb winch that is capable of being used on the Commander but no mounting brackets. He said they have a mount that can be used with a 2" receiver on the front but nothing to mount to where the tow hooks go.

I am thinking about installing this winch on the Getlost4X4 bumper, what are your thoughts?

Also wondered about the benifits of seperate air/winch vs. the combined unit?

At least you won't have to deal with storing a compressor in your XK. But that wouldn't be an issue if you mounted a small compressor in the engine compartment.

I like the idea of both in one unit. Having it out would only make me wonder if it could get messed up due to exposer to the elements.

These are quite popular on JKs, due to the lack of space under the hood. However, my buddy that has one advises it is HEAVY! He ended up putting beefier springs on the front to get his handling back.

All 3 JKs in the picture have them:

Now Gone: TJ 00 4 liter, 2" RE Lift and shocks, a few extra skidplates, and not much else, 'cause all the money goes to:

Now HIS: XK 07 Limited Hemi, 2" RR lift and shocks, JK Rubicon wheels (255/75 r17 BFG MT), 1.5" Spidertrax spacers, Rocky Road Supersliders, Mopar heavy-duty rails and roof rack. Get Lost 4x4 Rear Tire Carrier. 4xGuard Belly Skid. Oh, and a spiffy dash mat.
