Frequently Asked Questions
- What are all the 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 a Synthetic Line?
Yes, you need to use the synthetic line. The winch mount has been designed with the intended use of an Aluminum Hawse Fairlead, I recommend the SCITOO Universal Aluminum Hawse Fairlead because of the inexpensive price.
- What is the Hawse Fairlead bolt size?
7/16-inch by 1-inch course thread
- 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 stocked at the warehouse 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 solenoid, and for a 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.
