I have the front bumper mounted but it sticks out a little far for my liking. I am going to move it back 2 or 3 inches. I don't know what is going on but I cannot upload any pictures.

Nice truck and bumper, the stance is great.

Watch out for the winch being too big… I know people say it is never too big but if the truck get really stuck on maybe a sunken log under the mud and you do not see it and try to pull yourself over it, it may do damage to the frame/mounting/bumper or even the front end parts.

Just something to think about.

The price is interesting, very low, I avoid using the word cheap… test this thing out right away.
Run the wire out and pull your truck up a steep hill to rewind the wire or the synth rope, set the lower wraps in place.

Pictures for sure, that is what I have been wanting to do, a bumper that fits closer, less sticking out front.

Mile Marker winches were very inexpensive I purchased a 9000lb winch for 350.00 from 4wheelparts 5 years ago. Engo is a Mile Marker sister company. Plus this brand was one of the top rated 3rd or 4th place winches that was tested by four wheeler magazine

The Engo E9000 requires some assembly, as the solenoid pack is not installed to the winch

4th Place
Engo E9000
Spawned from the former CFO of Mile Marker winches, Engo is a new up-and–coming winch manufacturer with an emphasis quality, value, and customer service. Engo has a full line of recovery winches available from 3,000 to 12,000 pounds, offering both hydraulic and electric-powered versions for regular consumers and military clients. The E9000 model we tested originated in China, but came securely boxed with two plastic straps and plenty of ribbon tape to keep contents secured inside. Additionally, two robust clamshell Styrofoam inserts minimized movement within the parcel. The unit weighed just 49.4 pounds without cable, securing the ultra-lightness award of the all the units we tested. The 5.5hp series-wound motor is offered in both 12- and 24-volt versions. The most noteworthy observation we made during our testing of the E9000 model was how easy the drum free-spooled when the clutch was disengaged. Where some winches required our staff to pull cable from the drum using significant upper body weight, the Engo required just one arm. During our speed and efficiency test, the E9000 took third place, leaving just over 22 feet of rope unspooled. The motor reached a maximum operating temperature of 151 degrees during the pull. During the stall test, the E9000 pulled to 12,000 pounds and stopped sans drama. Once removed from the stall test, the unit continued to work flawlessly in either direction. It’s important to note that this was one of only two winches that survived the stall test unscathed. Considering that it survived our thrashing and can be bought at the very affordable price of just $329.99, we had to award the Engo E9000 as the best value of the group. Info: Engo Industries, 360/642-0079, www.engousa.com
