Purchased a Westin Sportsmanship grille for my '02 Tacoma. I also traded for a Warn 8k winch. I was planning on doing a receiver hitch on the front, and using the winch at both ends. I was looking at the mount the winch came on - it was 3/16 steel and the attachment points to the frame were 1/4. The Westin grille attaches the same way. What I was considering was welding the center of a receiver hitch in between the uprights of the Westin Grille. I have an old hitch as a donor. I realize this will not be as strong as a true receiver hitch, but I don't do any heavy off roading. What do you folks think?
Thanks in advance
