    Warn 8274 Winch Mount

    Starting it off with this mountimg plate. Looking to get a piece of steel tomorrow for the bumper. I bent the origonal 2 years ago and need something better to attach tow bar onto also.

    Need to quit stalling and get moving so its ready for the spring

    I used a piece of 4 channel for my bumper. The mount plate looks great I wish I would have had that option, saves time

    Somebody posted the link somewhere else on the site. I just finally got around to ordering it:D
    Hoping to find some rectangular tube stock about the same size as the stock crossmember.

    No work yet but did do some measuring. I have enough room between the right frame rail and saginaw box to drop it down like i want. Ill have the fairlead coming thru the bumper.
    I already boxed both frame sections up to the radiator crossmember when i did the ps install. Plan is to attach the bumper with brackets to the frame. So the back of the new bumper will be where the front of the old one is now. That'll give me another 1.5" between grill and bumper. I wouldnt call it tight, but i havent had to get my fingers in there yet:D

    On a side note, when you box the frame in for ps upgrade, leave some kind of room or weld in cage nuts so you can remove said front bumper more easily:whistle:
    I have to cut the bolts holding it on now and will be doing some sort of welded on cage nut for the new one.
