Of all the WARN mounting systems, the Trans4mer Mounting System offers the most versatility. It can be configured in dozens of different ways to match how you work (or play) with your truck. GRILLE GUARD - The foundation of the Trans4mer System. The grille guard comes with two uprights and two crossbars, and bolts directly to the vehicle frame. It is a required component because it provides the base for all other options. BRUSH GUARDS - Add style and protection with brush guards that complement your vehicle's lines. WINCH CARRIER AND SST CARRIER COVER - Dor a fixed winch mount, you'll need to add the Winch Carrier. You'll also want to take a look at the stainless steel SST Winch Carrier Cover. It bolts over the carrier to give a smooth, contoured and integrated look to the Trans4mer. For a portable winch mounting system, choose the Front Receiver. This 2 Class III Receiver bolts directly to the grille guard in place of the fixed mount winch carrier. LIGHT MOUNTING OPTIONS - For lighting up the night, a light bar, with two mounting tabs, can be easily added to the Trans4mer system. Or for applications with space limitations, Warn Industries makes special L brackets to mount lights from the sides of Grille Guard. POLISHED STAINLESS OR BLACK POWDER COAT FINISH - Whether you choose a Trans4mer system in powder-coated black, stainless steel or a combination, you'll be getting a simple, bolt-on system that installs around the factory bumpers.
I bought this a back in May of 2011 for my 1988 Jeep Comanche and decided its time for a review. I bought the Grille Guard Center, Winch Carrier, and Brush Guards all together. Installing the grille guard was easy, and required some drilling to the frame and the guard it self. The winch carrier is very sturdy, and has not bent or moved while using the 8K winch. The only issue i have had is the finish on the Grille guard center was starting to flake off, but some black paint makes it look new again.

I actually installed this on an 01 Yukon even though Warn lists a different part number for my vehicle. I think the only difference is the headlight guards that attach to the main unit which I did not purchase. Anyway, the mounting brackets are 1/4" steel and well engineered as are the uprights. The tubes on the other hand are flimsy .065" wall tubing. I wanted something heavier so I replaced both tubes with 1/4" wall tubing and welded them in place. This added a few pounds but I felt the added rigidity was well worth it. I replaced all of the nuts & bolts with 304 stainless because I didn't want to have to worry about rust. I also had to cut notches in the bumper so the upper brackets could fit between the grille and the bumper. This was no big deal and the notches are out of sight so the install looks clean. The instructions were clear and I'm happy with the product. Installation took about 6 hours by myself. I would have given 5 stars were it not for the thin walled tubing that bolted between the uprights.

Thanks for the inquiry New Kid, the Warn Trans4mer Grille Guard part # WAR30092 for a full size blazer you'll part WAR29753 with a common carrier WAR29165, Significant modifications required if this is a 2x4.
I have a 2001 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4. Will I be able to mount a winch directly to the grille guard or do I need to buy other components?

Thank you for asking. The Warn Trans4mer Grille Guard will accept all winches with the standard mounting bolt pattern.
In 1948, Arthur Warn founded Warn Industries to construct locking hubs for surplus World War II Jeeps. Ten years later, the Warn winch was manufactured to fill the need for a reliable recovery tool to aid off-roaders stuck in challenging situations. Since then, Warn has grown to offer a wide range of gear with the hallmarks of durability and affordability. 1988 spawned the aftermarket industry's first ATV winch and today their PowerSports line of winches ranks among the most esteemed in the industry and jeepers call on Warn for electric, hydraulic and severe duty components that get the job done.
