Made a winch mount for my 2003. I welded a hitch in the front so I can use it in the front or rear.

Do yourself a favor and make your own dont buy that smitty mount they suck. I got my truck stuck in the snow one day a buddy had one so I put it in the rear hitch. Long story short I bent the damn mount pulling it out. They are made out of sheet metal. And the stinger is thin.

How did that winch mount work out? Looks like you did a nice job. I have a 2001 Expy. Got stuck in the Tennessee lake muck while on vacation last week. A Flatbed made it out to me and pulled me out. It was stuck so bad that I snapped the front piece off my Hi-Lift jack. I just bought a Badlands 12,000 lb winch and would like to do the same thing. What size winch do you have on there? Joe

Works freaking awesome! The one I have is a 12500 lbs winch. I think its the same as the badlands. 12500 lbs is kinda over kill but I rather b well prepared n have power left over. Be sure to post pics of your progress! One suggestion tho which I have to do myself is change the cable on the winch althought the winch can do 12k lbs the cable cant.
