Getting a winch on my H3 Hummer has been a goal for a while now. Originally I was going to use Defelice’s winch mount but chose a different path nearly a year ago. Over that time period, I’ve developed my own winch mount that hides inside the factory bumper. What I like most about my design, will be the difficulty recognizing it wasn’t made by Hummer.
Currently, I’m on my third version of the design and hope to have the fourth version be production ready. The H3 Hummer winch mount is laser cut from 3/8” inch steel to ensure that the design is plenty strong. So far with the testing, I have done, it has proven to be plenty thick. As it stands now, the winch should cost in the $300-$400 range powder coated black.

Here’s the second video of me testing.
