    Hello guys. I am new to this forum and I have a few questions. I just bought a double cab shorty off road 4x4 2011 and I am looking for a front receiver for a portable winch so I can use it on the front and back of my truck. I don't want one that hangs down I prefer a hidden one if possible. Hope you guys and gals can help

    not trying to be rude, but just do a search for "front receiver" and you'll find what you're looking for.

    Ive got a 98 1st gen. Do you have to take off the slider plate up front to fit that on? Im looking at mine and thinking it would have to drop down in order to leave the slider on but your mount looks like its just flat from the bolt-on points. Also, Im not finding any sites that sell a 1st gen front mountable receivers.. is that the case? and if so should I just contact my local welder?
