well so ive looked at how i could mount a winch in behind my bumper. it will never fit unless you decide to cut apart your front bumper and do some fabing for a winch carrier. so therefore it wont be much of a hidden winch. but you do get to keep your bumper.. eventually when i get my winch i will be doing this so ill put up how i did it then
The bumper wont be used for any kind of support. I will be building my own brackets for the winch which will tie off to the frame. and with the little bit of room it wont be very hidden as I will be cutting the bumper up to make it fit.
um i dont think it would help too much plus i have a custom light bar on the front that wont allow me to do so.. Really I dont mind having to cut my bumper up little bit to make it fit. the part that is cut off will be getting bolted back onto the winch mounting to kinda keep a somewhat stock look. As soon as I get my winch, which should be soon ill make a thread on how i do it and post some pics
