Bikmakr's/mule expedition winch mount

Post by Derrickbwg » Sun Jun 10, 2018 6:48 pm

Wanted to say thanks to bikmakr for designing a really nice winch mount. Mule expedition made me one for each truck. Joe said they have a jig now for them so give him a call if you're interested. I'm using the warn zeon 10 24v winch.

I haven't received the hawse fairlead yet, but besides that it's all buttoned up and ready to go. There was some minor tweaking to get the mount to fit, I chalk it up to variances in the trucks and how the bumpers are mounted. Measuring mounting points between the trucks show a slight difference.
I wired it to the starter and the chassis side ground, there was just enough cable stock to get to those points. Wrapped in a split loom and grommeted every hole they pass through.

I went wheeling Friday and didn't clean it up before the install....its not always a mess like thatImage

Heres the one i havent mounted yet. Big bolt has a sleeve and replaces the stock pin. I did not like the bolts and washers i used to mount to the witches hat. Ive ordered larger washers to spread out the load a little more there as the metal is fairly thinImageImageImage

The approach angle is about as good as you can get with a winch mount.
