Wanted: pics of a winch mounting bracket behind bumper

Have a '94 RRC and I recently installed an aluminum great divide bumper. I've heard of folks mounting a winch behind the bumper and plasma cutting the front out for the lines. Any other options I have with this bumper? Anyone have any pics of a bracket mount? Think simple winch like a warn or superwinch 9000 or similar.

Not exactly an RRC, but it would work on one. This is Terrafirma's DII hidden winch mount. Worked on a DI and might work with the GDE bumper. The downside is you can't access the free spool, power in/out only. Bolts between the frame rails using the bumper mounting holes.

Peter Matusov(pm) on Dweb did this years ago.
I looked into it briefly but decided not to; the space is just really tight and I had too many other things going on.

thanks for the replies...TigerDan member has done it with a non-winch GDE and he's looking for some pics, but I just don't see how the heck a winch would fit behind the bumper, there's just not much room for anything. I need to go above the bumper (or behind it) than below it somehow. Don't want anything lower than the bumper to create something that will hang up easily. I don't know, it's not feeling like something that's going to be "easy" no matter what.

I had a reversed 26" long T extension, bolted on the butterfly of the winch and run along the radiator ( behind the grill ) , the only downfall, I had a 4" lever sticking out of the grill ( operating handle )


There are pics posted on Dweb , mar 2008, etc

Doesn't matter much for me anymore, the truck has moved onto another member here and with an ARB bumper now.

I have one on my RRC, however it is a few hours away so I can not take a picture.

This is one I found online


The box itself had 4 holes and were tapped. The bolts that held the bumper on went through the frame and into the box itself.

I seem to remember it being a nightmare to line everything up

IIRC to use the GDE (w/ winch) you'll also have to relocate the transmission cooler "hairbrush".
