Thumbs up

don,t see why it won,t fit. i have a warn 8000x on mine. sticks out about 1" past the ends of the frame rails.the roller fairlead is another couple of inches.you may have to make some brackets to relocate your bumper.

a friend has a winch on a warn mounting plate behind the same bumper i have. he only had to cut off the little metal stripes at the bumper where the lights can be mounted.

cant you cut it and extend it? I know my local welder or muffler shop would weld something like this (bumper) for possibly 25 bucks
