Hey, thanks for the info. I was really wanting to mount one on the front of the gator (as cheaply as possible). WhenI take the black plastic "bumper" off of the front, there appears to be a lot of good places to mount something.Are you wanting it to mount to the front or the back! There is a winch plate available for mounting in the rear hitch. According to the notes on the winch, you need a bumper or bumper/brush guard to front mounting.
