I don’t know why, but I like to try and fit winches into the stock bumper. Here I will install a Warn Industries 9.5ti winch into my ’95 FZJ80 Land Cruiser. A standard configuration winch would have been much easier to install, as the 9.5ti has the solenoids mounted inside the top cross brace. This required extra clearance when figuring out how to position the winch.
To start with, I fabricated some frame horn extensions that the winch mounting plate will be attached. I used the exhisting mounting holes and the stock extensions as the pattern. I also used the stock extensions as the outside of the bracket and to fill in the front.
