Front Winch Mount for the VW Vanagon

Fits all years and models of vanagons.  Winch and fairlead not included.
Mount accommodates most 8000 lb electric winches, including Warn, Ramsey and import 8000 lb winches.  A roller or hawse fairlead can be used, a mount for the fairlead is built in. 

This winch mount is bolted directly to the body of the van with six 1/2" bolts.  This is much stronger than if the winch were mounted to a bull bar or tube bumper - which is then attached to the van.   
Winch mounting holes are spaced at 10" x 4.5". 

All bumpers will need to be cut or mofidied in order to mount this winch mount.
- Stock fiberglass bumper will need to be cut.  Two holes can be made with a holesaw.
- Stock metal bumper will need to be cut.  Two notches are made with an angle grinder and cutting disc.
- Some people have modified or cut aftermarket bumpers, but I do not know the details.

Black powder coat finish.
Winch and fairlead are not included.   All bolts and backing plates are included as shown in the bottom picture.

Installation requires an extra long 1/2" drill bit that is at least 8" long.  The standard size is 6".

All hardware, bolts and nuts are included.
