Another Bansil 1998 Isuzu Rodeo post...
Since noone makes a semi hidden winch mount for our truck (Lisa wanted it to
remain as stock as possible).I got out the welder,tools and metal and started fabbing.
I tied into the stock frame rails and
"fishplated" the entire mount/extensions with 1/4" plate and
tied it in to the frame in several spots.
Test fitting the winch,it fit good so
I made a pushbar/brushguard and attached it after replacing the plastic bumper cover.
I didn't really loose any
ground clearance or approach
angle since I cut off all
the facory points that hung
