Have you rode it yet? since you are obviously riding in the desert where it is hot, I'm curious if your placement in front of the radiator is going to cause heat problems. But that looks nice tho, let us know as some of us may copy it.

I have not ridden it yet but im in the NW so I shpuld not have troubles with that. If I did it again, I would put the receiver below, like remove the bumper. It would make the xx longer but would be a more standard location. I think it will work well as it wont be the first thing to hit the ground when entering or leaving a hill. I'd love to see others interpretation of my winch mount! Im excited for this weekend to try it out :)

http://www.etrailer.com/Accessories-and-Parts/Tow-Ready/TR65850.html I meant to get this, I didn't trust the "1-2 months delivery" as stated, so I made my own using a receiver ball mount (
http://www.amazon.com/Draw-Tite-36061-Drawbar-Class-Frame/dp/B000E284DY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1311741801&sr=8-1) and had it welded to the winch mounting plate.

I bought a 6" square receiver tube for a 1.25 hitch, 2 "u" bolts that fit over the receiver tube and 3' of c channel from home depot cut into 4 pieces.

I had 2 pieces of C channel welded to the square receiver tube. I then used the "U" bolts to secure the welded square tube to the bike, using C channel on the other side of the frame. I used double nuts to keep any nuts from backing off.

I had to cut the plastic grill out in front of the receiver tube so the ball mount could be inserted. I also drilled a new hole in the ball mount so I could secure it deeper in the receiver tube.

Oh, and I got an RT15 from www.4wheelonline.com http://4wheelonline.com/Products.aspx?CategoryId=167266&ProductId=5687 for 199.00. No communication but the product was delivered with no taxes or shipping and in a reasonable time.

I may make a better attempt at writing this up later but this is a start.
