    So I got a good deal on a M12000, lets just say it big. Before I build my plate or tube bumper, haven't decided yet, I was planning on mounting it behind my stock bumper. At first I didn't think it would be possible but I just pulled it apart and it looks like it will fit, barely with some mods:eek:

    What I'm thinking of doing it cutting the radiator support out in the center, about 12'and making a bracket spanning the cut to give another 2" of clearance for the winch. It's kinda hard to explain but here is a very awesome pic.


    Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    If I end up doing it it will be. I'm kinda leaning on selling it and getting 9.5 or 8000.
