I probably should have done it before I went to Hannibal Rocks :-) Better late than never – the winch is finally on. I went with an Atlas 9500lbs winch which being quite inexpensive still has some nice features like series would motor or wireless remote.
The whole idea was to mount the winch securely and yet keep as much of stock bumper I could.
I had some problems how to accommodate universal mounting plate.
I even considered getting rid of it and fabricating something else in it’s place.
But finally I did it and it doesn’t look that bad. I also gained nice mounting point for fog/driving lights!
