Most brush guards aren't designed to handle a winch. I have seen one made by I believe Westin and I think Warn might make one too... but you'll have to verify it's designed for it. Most people will tell you for winching you're better off going with an offroad bumper. They're not too much more than you'll spend for a top of the line brush guard and offer much more protection.

Brush guards aren't really good for anything other than protecting your from brush. For that amount of money you're better off getting a true off road bumper with a winch mount. If you're going to be winching, I'm assuming you're going to be doing some type of off roading. The brush guard is thin and will bend very easily.

ok sorry i wasnt very specific when i describing what i was wanting and what i intended on using it for. The main thing is i want a winch, considering my truck is only 2wd. Id like to have it as a security as well as a little fun. The whole brush guard thing i could carelss about.. i thought u could mount the winch to the Brushguard n thats all.. to sum it all up, I want a winch but how do i go about mounting it. New bumper,? just a mounting kit? what do i need to get to mount it? do i need to remove my bumper in order to mount it? n do i need a new offroad bumpper ? thanks

Maybe this link will help. Most winches are supported by a specific mount due to their weight which is why off road bumpers give you the option of having a mount.

Thanks for that link, gave me ideas. I love the look of the newer tacoma in the pic. The one exactly like mine with a nice offroad bumper/winch. looks Clean n aggressive. Ugh so many decisions i dont know what to do!
