So, I have always been a huge fan of the Warn Upright winch. Also known by its technical name M8274-50 among other versions. I have two of these sitting in my garage and am just curious if anyone has seen one on a tacoma. I understand the conventional bumpers and mounts don't provide enough room to mount one of these style winches. But, I do know that most of you in here don't usually go with the norm. Just wanting to if it has been done or if anyone else has any ideas to make one work. I know the bumper wouldn't be able to "tuck" up under/behind the grille but having an upright warn sticking out front would be like my truck sticking it's chest out. :sneaky:

Edit: Anyone running the ARB Summit bumper that could get me pictures of the top where the solenoid box sticks out?

Haven’t seen one but I think you should do it! Nothing screams tough as nails than those winches hanging in front of a k5 (from what I’ve seen)

I would really like to see down from the top. Like I need someone to stand on their hood and take a picture downward. :unsure: Those uprights mount on the front instead of the bottom like most. The TJ I bought (to flip, don't judge me) I took a standard bumper and cut off the fairlead mount then made a bracket that bolted down to the bottom on the bumper and mounted the upright. It really turned out nice. I'll try and find a picture of it for reference.

Gotcha. I posted another one, might help. Couldn’t find any straight down.

No judge from me. I’m a die hard Jeeper. In a Toyota cause I get tired of working on cars. I wanna drive them lol
