ADDING A WINCH to a 2019 Ford Raptor using the Stock Bumper...
I am looking for advice on what winch mount to buy using the stock bumper and not relocating the Intercooler...Help?
Hi, welcome to the forum!
I don’t believe there’s a viable option for doing what you’re asking. There is a pretty nifty plate out there that uses the stock bumper with the warn winches, but everything requires relocation of the intercooler. Here’s a great thread on it: https://www.fordraptorforum.com/threads/winch-bumper-w-o-moving-intercooler.61478/
What about getting a front receiver hitch installed and getting a winch adapter hitch mount.
I've seen a few guys do that, makes sense being able to pull in either direction without extra pulleys and snatch blocks.
Thanks guys. Did talk to Warn today and they are contemplating a winch mount for that year...... Thanks will keep exploring!
Did you mean Warn is going to do a winch mount for the gen 2 Raptor or they won't? You said they are, but then said you will keep exploring, so wasn't sure if it was a typo or not?
You're probably gonna have to suck it up and get a different intercooler. This thread has the cleanest install I've seen.
Unfortunately you have to move the intercooler, because the stock sits exactly where the winch goes. But I look at it as a bonus because it gives you another good reason to replace that weak oem ic.
I just put mine SWARFWORKS mount and winch in today along with the COBB intercooler. I will say it both the COBB and SWARFWORKS kits were 100% bolt on. No modification need to either kit to make it fit and work! If you do what the instructions tell you to it will all line up and fit.
I saw a setup using a front receiver hitch mounted to the frame below the tow hook and the guy was using a Warn winch mounted on the removable receiver frame. FYI
