What Mounting Plate Is Needed for a 12000lb Badland Winch?

Harbor Freight sells the Badland universal channel winch mount plate for the 12,000 pound winch. It is made of heavy gauge steel and works with 12,000 pound off-road vehicle winches equipped with automatic load-holding brakes. It works with most trucks and SUVs, if the vehicle manufacturer specifies compatibility.

The Badland universal winch mount plate is compatible with three models of Badland winches. Harbor Freight customer reviews rate the universal mount plate with four out of five stars. The main complaint is that the mount plate does not line up with the holes on the vehicle. However, writers of several of the positive reviews said the same thing but drilled holes and attached the mount with no problems.
