    I'm looking for a winch plate to be mounted on my 2015 Tacoma TRD pro without altering the front bumper. Any product out there? pictures?

    not sure if this answers your question, but this is what the 2005-2011 looked like, i assume it's pretty similar

    Nope.

    Unless you know how to weld. I think we'd be surprised at just what the material costs alone would be.

    If you're not absolutely dead set on having a always present winch then there is the Mobtown Front Recovery Hitch that you could do a Hitch Mounted winch too that way it didn't have to always be on your truck or always in the front. You could also have it on the back. I bought one for christmas, it's a stout thing and adds two shackles for recovery in addition to the receiver hitch. That is my truck after putting on my recovery bar.

    It only caused a 1/4" drop on my stock front suspension. The bar is like 58lbs of 1/4" steel, Joe with @Mobtown Offroad does really really nice work. Excellent vendor to work with. As one other owner of this bar mentioned had the Titanic had one of these, that ice berg wouldn't have had a chance.

    It's also nice being able to take off the winch so you don't have an extra 70-100+lbs that is always attached to the front of your truck.

    I'm gonna bring this thread back from the dead. I like the reciever hitch up front with shackles. Ive seen plates that allow a winch to be mounted on it. Then you could hook to the front or rear. Just need some welding cable's to run to the back. I've got into some pretty shitty situations in other vehicles and the winch up front was useless.
