    I have a CBI Moab front plate bumper and I just received my Superwinch 9.5iSR. Well it turns out because the solenoid is mounted on the top of the winch, it's too tall and won't fit.

    Has anyone done a relocated for the solenoid for this particular model winch? If so, guidance would be much appreciated!

    Unfortunately the solenoid in mounted on top in such a way that it's housing actually holds the winch together. Cant remove it. May just have to revert to a saw or sell it...

    Jon's problem is that the 9.5i SR doesn't have a relocatable solenoid. The solenoid is housed in an aluminum housing. That housing takes the place of the typical bars that hold the sides of the winch square.

    I wonder if I can get two pieces of stainless rod, drill and tap it and make my own bars? That may work… PITA but may work.

    That would be a job for the machine shop. I say trim the bottom of the grill. That's a piece that you can easily replace if you ever take the winch out.

    I was just talking with Nathan at CBI this morning about this. They recommend not using winches with integrated solenoid with this bumper due to the fit. I don't know what year your truck is but he was telling me that on the 12-14 tacomas you can remove or modify the lower grill support to make it fit. I don't know if the same thing will work on the 2005-2011

    Well I managed to get it in. Had to remove the support brace that goes from one head light to the other for the grill. I then removed a portion from the bottom of the grill. Fits now, even if it's a bit snug.

    Thanks all for the help!

    Should have tried to rotate it 90 degrees but if it fits it's all good.
