    Hey I was looking at the front bumper and there appears to be enough room between it and the radiator to fit a winch, if one fabs up a mount to bolt to the frame. I was thinking about trying it with a Warn M8000. Has anybody tried to do this and if so your input would be appriciated. Thanks

    You can mount a winch on the bumper itself

    I wouldnt mount the winch DIRECTLY to the frame

    Yeah that is exactly what I am looking for. The comments said something about it being fake? Have you seen one on a truck, and would one have to worry about it tearing apart the aluminum spacers for the bumper. wouldn't it have to connect to the frame behind the bumper? Yes this is going behind the stock bumper to be hidden.
