Honda Factory Winch mount

Postby brando4905 » Tue Oct 08, 2013 5:57 am

Does anyone know if the factory mount will allow other winches to be bolted up? I'm a Warn fan, but don't want to spend that much on the Honda winch.

Not 100% sure. But you could easily make the holes to fit of not. And many winches are modeled after warn so they should.

I guess what i meant to say is I'm not going the Warn route with the Pioneer. Looks to me like the Honda winch is a Warn. Can't justify the price of that one when a Superwinch 4500 is way cheaper.

Anybody heard from Chester lately? I know he has fabbed a homemade solution for a mount, but I cant get ahold of him.

I might be switching topic gears here but I have to ask..... Can any winch take synthetic rope? Seems to me that it's the logical way to go.

i really liked bigrivers mount design but after carefully looking at variuos points on the factory bumper and bumper mounting i decided that its not a safe place to be pulling from the frame work is very thin and the bracing is in the wrong places to support a hard pulling winch i have built mine that attaches to the vertical tubes between the frame rails i made the mount out of 4in x 4in x 1/4 in angle iron then welded the warn winch plate that came with the winch on top of the angle iron it is secured with 4- u bolts to the vertical tubes it should be there for life

Yes, Its the only sane way to go now days.

@bigc, Thats nice. Would like to see it when you finish it up and install rollers and front bumper. Thanks.
