Now it's done. Blue ox base plates with all flat towing connections and the RC winch and winch mount. It's a pretty straight forward install.

I like how you notched out the plastic bumper mount covers, most others I have seen just cut it in half and the bumper bolts are exposed. I have an RC winch mount sitting at home for my capable bumper. Going to install next week, any advice on cutting the plastic and notching it correctly?

I started at the bottom and lined up the mounting tabs and worked my way up. You could go by mine. I cut too big at first then work a little at a time.

I know its been a while but can you supply me the part numbers you used for the winch install and mount. I have the same flat tow set up. Did you cut or modify the bumper to add the cradle? I have a steel bumper, I read below this one may be plastic? Thanks.

I had to trim the bumper a little and the plastic trim for it to fit nicely. Not a hard job. The RC parts are for the mod bumper.

Shop did the mod on my 23 Wildtrak, came out nice, but one word of caution... the front camera(I see you didn't have one), is now hidden behind the winch. The two sensors were relo'd so those were no issue. Wondering if I should find a work around to mount the front camera up above the winch or leave alone. The shop did use your photos, and appreciate that for sure.

EDIT DUE TO ME LOOKING LIKE I WAS DRINKING: The only question i have with the HM RC Winch set up and Blue Ox Flat tow system- there are no longer recovery rings in the front. Any ideas or suggestions? The 3/4" Shackle with 7/8 bolt won't fit in the holes where the cables fit. Not sure what do do when I get stuck other than I can get recovered from the tail end of the vehicle. Thoughts?
