G63 Winch Mount Solution?

Confession, I work in the aftermarket parts world and have my entire adult life. We donít sponsor this forum so Iíll spare you the details as itís not fair to those paying sponsors.

That said, I have industry friends from all walks of the industry. A contact of mine is willing to take a peak at an idea I have for a winch mounting plate that would work with the factory bumper.

I was curious how many other G63 owners were interested in mounting a winch to their rig. Right now there arenít any options. Itís the difference between a one off permanent design vs a production bolt on solution.

Chime in if you think itís worth pursuing.

This is a great idea. I am planning to do solo offroading with my G63 in the near future so the ability to mount a winch would be great. However, the most important improvement for offloading would be a way to protect the side exhausts. These are the first things to be crushed.

Hello,

From our understanding the reason they don't have it for G63 is because of the parktronic sensors. No matter how you fab the winch mount, the mount will trigger the sensors unless you are able to relocate them.

Like mentioned before, this is from our understanding and figure we'd share.

Thank you!

Thatís true if you were going to mount it in front of the bumper. The trick is mounting it in the proper spot, in front of
the grill on top of the bumper.
