Toyota Tacoma Winch Mount Bumper - 2012-2015

Don't want to add a full replacement bumper to your Tacoma just so you can mount a recovery winch? You are not alone. Full replacement bumpers are 100-150+ lbs, degrade aerodynamics and are expensive. Keep your stock bumper cover, factory looks and your MPG with the installation of this winch mount within and behind the stock bumper cover.

Add a pair of Van Beest Shackles above.

  • Designed and built in Texas!
  • CNC Laser cut - clean and precise
  • 1" wide shackle mounts are drilled .890" ID for .880" OD or smaller pins which is common for a 3/4" shackle. Pin sizes can vary. We offer Van Beest shackles which will fit our shackle mounts.
  • Mounting ear reinforcement plates for maximum clamping force.
  • Lighter than most aftermarket bumpers at 63 lbs.
  • Built to last. Winch tubs are .250" steel with a .125" fascia for a total of .375" of protection up front!
  • Full height front and rear winch tub.
  • Reinforced lower fascia with 7 gussets, adds bashplate protection up front.
  • Will accept most winches with industry standard 10" x 4.5" bolt pattern.
  • Works with either roller fairleads or synthetic style hawse.
  • Light tabs to accommodate most cube style (3") lights such as our Sirius Pro Series LED's.

We offer powder coating in black and silver in a very durable textured powder coat and can do custom colors for an additional fee. Please keep in mind that even though we go to great lengths to protect the coating we are not responsible for shipping damage to any coatings. Expect a 5-7 business day delay in shipping if you want your bumper coated. Read this article for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Does the winch mount come with winch, fairlead or shackles?

No it does not. Bare steel winch mount and reinforcement plates only. You will use your factory hardware.

  • Do you offer combination kits with discounts?

Why yes we do! Look for them in the category of your vehicle below this product listing. These money and time saving kits come with a winch mount, winch and shackles with options for lights and thimbles. They ship free to the lower 48 states via FedEx Ground.

  • Do you ship outside of the United States? If so, how much is shipping?

Yes, we ship Internationally and have done so to Europe, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Russia, Middle East, well, pretty much every continent, including Antarctica!. It can be expensive as we are shipping a 65+ lb chunk of steel but we are able to ship this in custom made double wall boxes which makes shipping much less expensive than other bumpers.

However, we DO have the ability to obtain special pricing from FedEx on a case by case basis. For example, we have shipped to the Middle East for as little as $200-250, Australia for $275-325.

Please use our contact form to send us your full shipping information for a quote. Please visit our shipping page for more information.

  • How much does it cost to ship domestically?

We ship via FedEx Ground here in the 48 states. Add the product to your cart then go to your cart, there you will be given an opportunity to receive a shipping quote based on your address. Typical costs are $30-40 in the central part of the country and $45-60 to each coast. Please visit our shipping page for more information.

  • What winches fit this mount?

Just about any winch will work. Read this technical article in our blog for a more in depth answer. The mount uses a standard 10" x 4.5" bolt pattern so any winch will fit and there is plenty of room in the mount itself.

We suggest a winch with a relocatable solenoid box or a winch of your choice that shares the same basic design with a remote solenoid/control box, this way you can locate the box wherever you want it.

Most winch manufacturers have gone to a smaller control box and/or have made it where you can mount over the winch spool or over the motor (passenger) side of the winch, so typically not a problem.

Consider our Combo Kits, they are tried and true!

  • What winch rating do you suggest for this application?

That is a big question. Unless you drive an FJ40 or a CJ/TJ you better go with 9000 lbs or larger. Most of what we sell in our combo kits are 9500/10000 to 12000 lb winches. Read this article for a more in depth discussion of winch ratings and overall selection: https://www.usoffroad.us/winch-selection/

  • Does the front end need to be lifted after installing this mount and a winch?

Short answer is maybe. Typically you will see a 3/8" to 1/2" drop by adding the mount (57lbs) and a winch (75-90lbs). This is still a much lighter alternative to a full bumper replacement (75-150lbs without a winch!). In our testing we noticed no difference in how a Tacoma drove after installation on a stock vehicle. Having said that, because most vehicles come from the factory with some rake (front lower than rear) it wouldn't hurt to lift it a bit to level things out. Read this article about using the Bilstein adjustable shocks to achieve a more level stance and much better ride vs stock for a reasonable price.

  • How hard is it to install?

Not really hard at all. It takes more time to prep and paint/coat the mount than it does to install (we suggest our optional powder coat). Figure 3 - 6 hours depending on the equipment you are installing (just the winch mount, winch, lights, etc?) your abilities and how big of a hurry you are in. You can read the install docs (Documentation Tab above) and watch our customer supplied install videos for more info: https://www.usoffroad.us/fj-cruiser-winch-bumper-installation-videos/ (It's on an FJ but the process is almost identical)

  • Will this work with suspension and body lifts?

Our bumpers work fine with any suspension lifts but will NOT work with body lifts as our bumper needs to line up with the bodywork but attaches to the frame. A body lift moves the bodywork in relationship to the frame.

Mean Mother built the EDGE series recovery winch to appeal to the 4WD enthusiast who is passionate about quality but wants value for money. The EDGE series ticks all those boxes with standard features not found on comparable winches.

Each winch in the EDGE series features a three stage planetary gearbox with sintered steel bushings which have been pressed and stamped (no pop rivets) into the gear carrier. A sliding ring gear clutch provides maximum strength and efficiency in forward and reverse winching operations with ease of free spool functionality. Each gear box is assembled and lubricated using synthetic grease and conforms to our strict assembly guidelines. Providing strength and enduring the pulling forces exerted is a hardened seamless steel drum assembly. Delivering maximum safety during a recovery is an automatic load holding in-drum brake system.

Delivering power to the winch is a waterproof solenoid that uses Ag-Cd alloy contacts (Silver cadmium alloy). The technology and quality of these contactors resist arching when switching currents. This prevents the contactors from fusing together creating a closed circuit which can potentially damage your winch or vehicle and possibly serious injury to the operator. 

This solenoid is housed in a sleek and stylish control box which has a waterproof plug. The heavy duty hand control comes with a 5 metre power cord with the option to upgrade to a wireless remote control which offers the user complete control and flexibility to stand well clear of the winch during operation. 

The 9500lb & 12000llb series winches use an efficient 12 volt 4.8hp series wound motor. These models offer performance and reliability in the toughest of conditions. We are so confident in the quality and design of our EDGE series winches we offer a limited 5 year mechanical component warranty and a 1 year electrical component warranty.

PERFORMANCE TESTED & GUARANTEED

To ensure the very best manufacturing processes are undertaken in the building of our EDGE series winches we have developed our own detailed testing procedures to ensure they meet and exceed our engineering, performance and quality benchmarks. Our testing procedures are divided into two individual areas:

Each model is tested to the following specifications and recorded:

  • 1.1 times rated line pull (dynamic testing) and
  • 1.25 times rated line pull (static testing)

DURABILITY TESTING

The winch is tested to the maximum duty cycle (1 minute) and rated line pull (winch applicable rating) in a dynamic test. This test is performed no less than 100 times and recorded; furthermore the first (1st) cycle is tested to 1.25 times the rated line pull. After the winch has passed 100 cycles without failure the winch and components are passed and inspected. 

NOTE: All testing was performed with the 1st layer of winch cable on the drum.

These tests are designed to examine the overall strength and ability of the winch while observing and recording the important characteristics and operational performance specifications.
