I receive quite a few photos from customers but some get your attention more than others. Josh from Canada sends us some photos of his FJ Cruiser with one of our winch mounts powder coated black along with some Van Beest shackles coated red. We also sent him some of our popular Sirius Pro Series lights that mount right up on the light tabs included in our mount.
Obviously, what really sets off Josh’s FJ is the the Jurassic Park scheme along with the following equipment list:
Bumper/bumper lights: US Off Road
Under armor: RCI full package
Suspension: OEM Heavy Duty Lift Kit 2.5″
Wheel setup: ProComp Wheels 16″x8″ (x5). Rubber: BF Goodrich KO2 (winter) 33″ and Mud tires 33″ general tire (Summer)
Bill from Ohio sends us photos of his FJ Cruiser with our winch mount along with a Mean Mother 9500 lb winch, a couple of Van Beest shackles and Sirius Pro LED driving lights. We powder coated the winch and shackles black for him as well. Bill says “Love the winch. It looks awesome.” and we agree!
Mark from California is another happy customer and sends us some pics of his 2014 T/X Baja. Mark purchased our popular winch mount (black powder coated) for his Tacoma along with a Warn VR8S winch. He notes that the winch controller did not need to be relocated over the winch spool…which is typical with this setup.
He also goes on to say “Thank you for a quality product..” . Thank YOU for your business!

I would like to take this opportunity as I do every year to honor my cousin, Sgt Casey Joyce B/Co 3/75th RGR, who was KIA in Somalia, Mogadishu on October 3rd, 1993. He is the namesake of my oldest son and a far better man at a young age than I will ever be.
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.” General George S. Patton
And yet I still mourn his loss as so many others do.
Stephen from here in Texas sends us a few photos of his 2018 Toyota Tacoma with our winch mount installed along with our license plate bracket. He went with a Warrior Samurai 9500 short drum winch along with a Custom Splice double thick rock crawler hawse. Turned out great! US Off Road Warrior Winches and HoistsCustom Splice

This is the busy time of year and we often struggle to keep up with demand. This year we started off with a larger inventory than normal to limit any shortages. So far so good overall. We have run out of FJ Camera Armor but should have another batch ready sometime around the 12th of March. We ran out of our 2012-2015 Tacoma winch mounts for a few days but 25 more just rolled off of the welding tables.
Corey from Louisiana sends us some photos of his FJ Cruiser with one of our winch mounts. Corey won this winch mount for his FJ at our Poker Run at the 2015 Jamboree with a killer hand of aces and 10s.. He added a Smittybilt 9500 winch with synthetic rope and a Factor55 Splicer from Steve Springs. He added some lights and grille from Ridgid to top it all off.

We are a stocking distributor of what I think is a high quality winch at a great price. The Aussies designed these winches and as we all know they USE their off road gear in Australia. Each winch is tested to ensure it meets specification before leaving the factory so you know what is going on your rig and that it WILL work properly when you need it most.
Having said all of that, U.S. Off Road has been selling quite a few Mean Mother winches with nothing but great results. Not only that but we will be featuring Mean Mother at the Unlimited Off-Road Expo – TEXAS this weekend (BOOTH 32). Additionally we are partnering with Mean Mother 4WD and their distributor 3pConnect with Josh Backes at the great 2017 Lone Star Toyota Jamboree this May.
To kick this next few months off we are offering a super deal on Mean Mother 9500lb Edge Recovery Winches, whether purchased individually or in one of our Winch Mount Combination Kits by giving you one of Mean Mother’s kickass Recovery Shovels. A FREE shovel that retails for $99! You gotta check these out, they transform in to a variety of configurations and are built Aussie tough!
