Default Winch mount Question.

Hey all. I bought a 12K winch off a guy and its in a hitch cradle. Some one told me that that's not as strong as having it mounted to the truck, (bumper mount). What do you think? Thanks Jesse

Bumper mount. Specially if you have custom made brackets or bumber made.....Ole is very good at that!

I used to sell Warn, if you have a 12k in a saddle it's a cobble job. 12k in a saddle is way too much and could be a danger if in a hard stressed pull. Go talk to Ron at white spruce and he can get you what you need and it will be cheaper than you can get it any where else. Tell him Cory sent you. If you have anymore questions let me know and I'll steer you in the right direction.

Ok thanks Cory. I'll have to check him out. I plan on building a bumper this winter when Tax return hits. I just believe in if I get stuck going forward I should pull my self out backwards. My big a@@ truck really don't belong in mud anyways, weighing in at over 9000#, they sink quick.
