Check out blown budget off road, I think the name is, a YouTube channel. Pretty cool laidback guys who installed one. I think they had an issue and had to modify something. Not sure if it was on prerunner oem bumper. I bought that bumper and the narrow drum Warn 45. The holes did not line up. Also, the way the prerunner is designed, the holes are parallel to the radiator, meaning the winch is bolted in front to back instead of the bolts facing the ground, an inherently weaker design IMHO.

Yep wasn’t saying it won’t fit. Just be aware that the mounting position could be better than what the prerunner offers.

The strongest mounting position for a winch is mounting feet facing the pull direction. The OEM winch mount faces downward. I don't think anyone in the UTV industry cares about some of this stuff because there is no uniformity and very little engineering.

You'd be better off listing which bumpers mount the winch feet forward because if the list isn't zero it's gotta be pretty short.

so basically the best position is forward feet mount but no bumpers really offer that ? thats interesting for sure and good to know
