    My so has a 2007 Tacoma, 4x4 and I was wondering what is a cheap way, or is there to install a winch. He has a brushguard but it is not one of the ones that will hold up to a winch pulling on it (More for looks and lights).

    I was wondering if you could get something or build somthing to support the winch. I want it to look good but I also want to go the poor man's way.

    I saw Tractor Supply Company has a Champion 8000 winch for around 399.00.

    NO!NO! You need a bumper that will work with a winch!!! try Warn.com and look at the transformer winch mount! I had one on my last ! It may work with your bumper!! And you can a Warn M8000 winch for about $600. You get what you pay for!!:D Good Luck!!!!

    Did you ever find a winchmount? If not check ou this website. Undercoverhwms.com this mount only weighs less then 30 lbs & is made to support a warn vr or m 8000lb winch. And it does all this with everything conceiled behind the factory bumpercover let me know what ya think?
