67-72 behind bumper winch mount update
With the finalization of the 81-87 GM Shackle Bracket tow hooks (available March 26th or before) design focus has turned toward a behind the bumper winch mount for the 1967-1972 GM trucks.
The intent of this design is to offer a straight forward behind the bumper winch mount for these trucks. The hook will come out through the license plate area - which will require cutting a hole in the bumper as well as drilling holes to mount a roller or hawse style fairlead.
Pictures show prototype 3D printed frame brackets, which will bolt into four places on each frame rail. They will attach with (3) 5/8" diameter bolts & (1) 1/2" diameter bolt. The 1/2" bolt will pass through the core support frame mount and on 4x4 trucks; also the outer bumper brace. This setup will provide the ultimate solid mount for winching.
Winch plate will mount across the frame, bolting to each frame bracket with (2) 1/2" bolts. Winch will mount upside down.
I anticipate this product to launch in late March/early April 2021. Pricing TBD.
Thanks for the interest!
