I am looking to make a custom bumper and I have 2 questions: 1. I want to use a spare set of tow hook mounts to with the tow hooks removed as a base do you think this will be strong enough to seat a 3000 pound winch. and 2. could someone give me the size of the mounting plate for there winch. I am assuming that there is some kind of standard size of mounting plate seeing as after market bumpers can fit multiple winches.

I was thinking about designing something like that but I need the measurements for the winch mount in order to figure out all the measurements for the bumper I like the pre runner design

Most winch companies will list the dimensions of their winches online, such as the bolt plate holes and overall dimensions.
