Same way you would without a B/L. You mount it to the frame, not the body.

I'll have pics of my winch mount up soon, if 4wheelparts will replace mine because it got here, FAWKING BROKE.

get a front hitch, with a winch carrier hitch attachment. Or fab something custom.

that is a WARN Trans4mer winch carrier
you are going to have to cut into the valance or fab up some custom brackets to make it work
it is designed for a 1993-2003 Ranger.... is that what you drive
I am sure you can make it work, but it will require some cutting, bending or fabrication

he sold that setup because he went with a bodylift and 35s. so im guessing it would have been to much fab work involved.

What does the trans4mer mount to? I'll probably get one if it doesn't use some of the factory holes in the frame that have **** on them now. Anyone got pics of it's mounting points? Can't find any on google.

ok im thinking i might go with a front reciever so i can take it off, does anyone have any objections to that based on strength or anything?

I think the transformer mounts to the frame and core support, brian would be able to answer though, he put it on, i just used to stare at it.
