Default 2010 Powerwagon Winch Mount same as 2010 2500 TRX4

Does anyone know if you can mount a winch to the front of a 2010 2500 the same way the winch mounts to the 2010 Power Wagon?

I would assume that there is going to be a MOPAR bracket kit for this, but I am not sure if it is (or will be) available. You could always go down to a dealer and look at one, get under it and see how they mounted it behind the front bumber. I have to admit I love how clean they made that look. Im going to mount my WARN off of my bull bar (for my 1500) but it is not going to look nearly as clean. Not sure if this helps.

I was just down at my locat 4WheelParts getting an install done. While there I looked at the WARN 12,000lb winch and started talking the sales staff. They said they could do a "behind the bumper" install of the winch on a normal 2500. Apparently there is a black plastic insert on the front bumper that they just pop out and that is where it comes out. They can mount a nice chrome cable slider just behind that and then use a bracket system to hold the winch itself to the frame. Not sure how it would look with your lift and it adds about 140lbs to your front end so you may slope slightly. Do you have a 4WheelParts store in your area? I would suggest calling one up or going down in person and see what they can do. The WARN sold for $1300 at my local store. $75/hr for labor plus $ for brackets etc. Might want to just buy from there and do it yourself. If its anything like my shop the staff are over eager to help and save you money. I just got new trail lights mounted with a SUPER CLEAN install. They spent 4 hours and only charged me an hour labor. I would have just done them myself but these new truck are a pain in the electrical department! Wow this post is out of control! Way to long. Hope it helps.

I was able to find the bracket and all of the mounting hardware on the MOPAR/Dodge Parts website. I went ahead and ordered everything directly...it wasn't particularly cheap...~$750 for everything. The only part I couldn't get from the website (hopefully I can get them from the dealer) are the rollers that mount to the front of the bracket. If I can't get the rollers from a dealer, I think I'll be able to fab some fairly easily. I'm excited for all of the mounting hardware to get here so I can get to work. I'll take pictures as I go and let you know how it turns out.
