3G front tow hitch

Post by Bgeraurd » Sun Aug 04, 2019 7:42 pm

Anybody running a 2" reciever on the front of their third gens with the factory winch mount? I need to load a few dead vehicles on my flatbed trailer.

I was looking at getting one of Ranch hands bumpers a while back that looked like it would work. Still haven't commited to it though. This image is from their website.

I just put an ICI Magnum winch bumper on the front of my Tundra. ICI offers a front receiver that bolts onto the bumper where the roller/fairlead would go, so eliminates ability to use winch and receiver at the same time on that particular bumper. With the PW hidden mount, that shouldn't be a problem.
