H3 Hummer Hidden Winch Mount - Details

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the list of winches that fit?
    I have no way of answering this question, I don’t have the ability to test every winch out there. I currently have the Warn M-8000s Winch mounted to my H3 Hummer. The width of the Warn M-8000s is 21.04″, the height is 7.6″, and the depth is 6.3″. The depth will not fit anything 1″ deeper, and the height is maxed out. The width could easily be another 5-10″ longer. However, I recommend matching those original dimensions, most quality winches will. Finally, the winch controller needs to have the ability to be remotely mounted.
  • Cutting or Modifications to the H3 Hummer require?
    Absolutely no permanent changes are required, for the H3 Hummer Hidden Winch Mount.
  • Do I need Synthetic Line?
    Yes, you need to use synthetic line. The winch mount has been designed with the intended use of an Aluminum Hawse Fairlead, I recommend the Smittybilt 2809 Universal Aluminum Hawse Fairlead because of the inexpensive price.
  • How long is the installation time?
    With a competent mechanic, 3-4 hours is plenty of time.
  • Are the Winch Mounts in Stock?
    Yes, all parts are now stocked in ware house ready to ship in one business day.


Just before Christmas of 2015, I invited a customer that had purchased the H3 Hummer Hidden Winch Mount over to my house. They brought their Hidden Winch Mount, a Warn VR-8000 Synthetic Winch, and I supplied the tools and knowledge. The install only took 5 hours, with two lengthy trips to town for 4 Gauge Wire for remotely mounting the seloind, and for T-25 Torx bit so that we could clock the winches clutch 90° clockwise. Clocking the clutch is necessary to provide access to the winch’s clutch control.

  • Thomas Willis says:

    Hey I just ordered a hidden hitch can’t wait to install it!! The skid plate for the h3 how many fit under the h3?

    • Schwarttzy says:

      The HD Skid plate package I sell includes two skid plates. The kit doesn’t replace any of the factory skid plates, just adds an additional 4′ by 2′ of skid plates under a H3 Hummer.

  • Darren Thorsen says:

    I have Roadmaster tow brackets, they attach to the frame at the same location as your winch mount. Is there any chance of getting a winch mount in which the mounting tabs are spaced farther apart? I think I could sandwich the Roadmaster brackets between the frame and winch mount.

    • Schwarttzy says:

      It’s possible, but going to cost more than the standard winch mount I sell and would need money up front for a project like this.

  • Brayden Szondi says:

    Hey, will you ship to Canada?

    • Schwarttzy says:

      Absolutely, I’ll ship to Canada. I’ve already shipped many packages, and the website shipping calculator is normally very accurate.

  • Sam says:

    I have a Warn 89611 ZEON 10-S Winch (10000 lb). Does any of your past customers able to fit this winch to your winch mount?

  • Rickey steinke says:

    Hey brother, I found your site by happen stance. Any chance you are still making parts?

  • Nick says:

    Does this come with the new rad support or is that something I have to buy?

  • Nuyts says:

    schwarttzy , can you make me a quote for a complete kit : winch and kit

  • Andrey Tskhoidze says:

    Hi! My name is Andrew and I am from Moscow, Russia. I drive H3 since 2008. And now I came into mind, that I need a winch on my Hummer. I wish to order your installation kit of hidden winch mount but the cost of transportation will be too expensive for me. May be it will be possible to sent me drawings with dimensiones so I can make it myself?

    • Schwarttzy says:

      Hey Andrew,

      I’m not going to hand out my drawings to my designs, but I can tell you that the shipping calculator isn’t good at international pricing. If I had to guess the price would be around $300 to ship to Russia. If you’re interested send me an email and we can go from there.

    • Jake Morris says:

      Hey Andrey, I just got done installing mine on my H3T and I couldn’t be happier with it! It was extremely well made and everything fit perfectly. That being said, I would highly recommend spending the extra $ on shipping rather than trying to replicate it. I was very hesitant on spending that much money for the mount, but I promise it’s well worth it! (And it’s actually a really good price by the time you buy everything you need to make your own or even if you have a weld shop try to replicate it) Not sure if I can upload pics on this thread, but if you want pics of my install just let me know!

      Schwarttzy, FYI I was actually able to stuff a 12,500lb using this mount. I know 12,500 is overkill but it can be done. Only had to trim some of the plastic on the inside of the bumper – wasn’t too bad! Will definitely be purchasing more of your products in the near future.

  • will says:

    I have 2006 h3 hummer with brush gaurd, an a 8500winch I would like to install will this kit work for me

    • Schwarttzy says:

      As long as the winch has the ability to remotely mount the control solenoid. Great examples of winch that fit are Warn M-8000, VR-8000, and Smittybilt XRC-9,500. I design the mount to be used with synthetic rope. When it comes to safety and ease of use, synthetic rope is better at everything when compared to cable. Also, your legs will thank me when you got to make 75+ foot run with the rope.

  • Jake Morris says:

    Do you have these in stock? Wanting to get it in before Christmas if possible! Thanks

  • Marc says:

    Would this hidden mount fit an H3 Alpha 5.3l

  • Marc says:

    how big a winch can fit behind the bumper like that. I see a Smittybilt X20 12000lbs with synthetic rope, would a steal rope fit also, did this particular winch was fitted on your hidden mount without problem?

    • Schwarttzy says:

      A 12,000LB winch is complete over kill on H3 Hummer. Not only that but also operate much slower than an 8,000lb winch. However there is good chance it will fit just fine. Don’t waste your time with steel cable it dangerous, a pain literally and mentally, and most importantly you need a hawse fairlead for this winch mount to work.

  • Connor Reece says:

    Do you have any of the hidden witches in stock?

  • Matt dunlap says:

    Does the winch mount work on an 06 h3 automatic
