RRO Winch Kit & TH V6 w/Technology Package

Hi Guys,

Has anyone had any success with RRO's winch kit and the a V6 TH w/technology package (collision detection, lane sense, etc. - the eye and sensors on the bumper)?

I have read over the older threads and haven't seen anything speaking exactly to the sensors.

Thanks!

If you get an answer, I'll be interested as well. I ordered everything but am waiting for it to get here. RRO claims the ONLY adjustment is that you drill a 2" diameter hole over each sensor so it can "see".

That is what I did for the light bar.

see my sig pic.
Do you have a smaller picture by chance?

Just kidding :P

So all you did was drill out for the two (?) sensors on the bumper and you were good to go, no issues?

How about the "eye" underneath, any issues there?

What I wouldn't give to see and live in the woods again. I'm originally from Washington state. But do you have any issues with the "eye"? RRO claims it should function normally but it appears as though the bumper sits a little in the way.

lol sorry edited pic

The ACC sensor (eye) did not get blocked at all it is working fine. There is another user on here who just notched around the sensors from the edges making kind of a >< pattern.

I like the way you did it better. The problem I have though is fitment. I have the V6, Tech Package, and Tow Package with the winch mount. I'm hoping I don't run into any notorious RRO fabrication problems.

It would be awesome if you could keep this thread updated (or a new one) on your install progress. If you don't run into any issues (I have a 2016 TH w/V6, tech, etc.) I will likely be looking to pick up the entire kit as well.

I am thinking about getting the Super Sliders too.

As to RRO issues, everything I read was with their poor powder coating, otherwise I believe their actual steel work is A+ from everything I have read.

I personally won't be installing the system. I'm taking it to someone to do as I can't handle the work myself as much as I'd like to. But I will do my best to supervise and keep everyone updated when it all gets here.

Nice! I doubt I would do the work myself either as I honestly never worked on a vehicle in my life and starting with something as complicated as the Cherokee is probably not the best starting place (I'm a little late to the game).

Just a "it works" would be awesome
