Engineered Vintage's BBWM (Behind Bumper Winch Mount) for 67-72 trucks
Designed to fit foot down style winches (see below for more information on what winches that fit) and strengthen the front frame sections on these trucks with installation of an additional front cross-member
Designed by a gear head engineer for gear heads!
This kit bolts in and has two different mounting configurations. It can be mounted in “High Configuration” with winch line exiting through the bumper (requires cutting a hole in bumper) or “Low Configuration” with winch line exiting just underneath the bumper - requiring use of a hawse style fairlead. And once installed you can change it anytime by unbolting it and flipping the kit into the other configuration!
Note that the winch mounts upside down in this kit - check with your winch manufacturer on capability of your model winch to be operated & installed upside down.
The BBWM will BOLT into 69-72 4x4 GM trucks equipped with factory tow hooks or Engineered Vintage Shackle brackets and is compatible with 69-72 OEM hooks as well as Engineered Vintage Shackle brackets (sold separately. Note there is a 10% auto-discount on 67-72 shackle brackets (non hardware) when purchased with a BBWM)
BBWM will also fit 69-72 2wd & 4x4 thttps://www.instagram.com/reel/CoRGNQrOsjI/?utm_source=ig_web_button_native_sharerucks that do not have factory tow hook holes - but drilling of frame holes is required
BBWM will also fit 1967-68 trucks in both high & low configuration, but as the frames are slightly different on these trucks, installation requires removal of a factory frame rivet on each side and drilling holes into frame - kit will allow you to install 69-72 style hooks or the Engineered Vintage shackle brackets on your 67-68 truck.
Special Note regarding 67-68 GM curved hooks: As the 67-68 hooks have a different bolt spacing, drilling / modifications of BBWM frame brackets may be required if you run the 67-68 curved tow hooks or want to run these years of hooks someday (this is not covered in installation instructions yet - if you install a BBWM with curved hooks let us know - we would love to see it!)

Inspect truck frame before installing this kit. Truck frame should be in good repair before installing. Frames that have rust holes, been cut, modified, drilled (other than for factory tow hooks or to mount BBWM) or that have any other damage should be professionally inspected and repaired before installation of the Behind Bumper Winch Mount kit. DO NOT INSTALL THE BBWM KIT ON TRUCKS WITH DAMAGED, CORRODED, BENT, OR HEAVILY MODIFIED FRAMES.
What winches fit?
With the variety of winches available on the market today, note that not all winch combinations may work. However, rest assured that the BBWM is designed to fit a wide variety of winches.
Installer should consider how their particular winch will be operated once installed (how to reach winch controls once winch is mounted) and check with their winch manufacturer on capability of their particular winch being mounted and operated upside down.
The BBWM Kit is designed to mount feet down style winches with the common 10” x 4.5” bolt pattern. For high mount configuration, the winch must fit between / inside frame rails of the truck (GM frame rails of this year are C shaped, with approx 24” between narrowest part, around 28” to inside of each frame rail, and about 4.5” in height. The low mount configuration allows wider winches to be mounted.
The BBWM Kit also has provisions to mount the older Badlands short drum winches (6K) with 6.5” x 4.5” pattern and also the WARN 6” x 4.5” bolt pattern used on their competition/short drum winches.
The BBWM is not compatible with feet forward style mounted winches (will NOT fit the WARN 8274, M12000, M15000, M16.5T nor other style winches with feet forward mounts)
