Default Bed for Electric Winch For Safari

Guys, I just got myself a 12000lb electric winch, thanks to Arka. Anyone got any ideas on how to fix it best on my Safari.

You might need to cut a couple of holes in the bumper for the bracket to pass through. The lisence plate will have to move to the side

Talking

From where dear and for how much? I've been on the lookout for long. A friend of mine has one on his LandRover. And I've been requesting him to park it in my garage just for the night..

What is the approximate weight of the winch.. I seriously doubt that the safaris bumper can take the weight..

Lol.Godfather.
Nobody in his right mind would fit a 12000lb winch to the bumper.
It has to pass through the bumper and fit onto the chassis.

42 Kg's! I think I need to fabricate a bed inside the bumper, between the radiator and the bumper front , where there is enough space.
PM Arka (ex670c) for the winch and price.

Anna... 12000lb is the pulling weight that the winch can take.. The winch itself will weight not more than 50kgs i think..
I want to know the weight of the Winch.. maybe a slight modification and a crashguard addition on the front will help to fix the Winch.

Friends
Please excuse me for the novice question but what is the electric winch and what is the significance of using it?

Regards
