The mounting plate for the hidden winch by MUDTECH4x4 has been specifically designed and built to be fixed to the frame of the Discovery 3/4 and Range Rover Sport. The aluminum fair-lead is hidden under the front license plate when the car is used for everyday and removing the plate with 4 simple screws, during off-road use, so immediately you have to use the winch. The aluminum fair-lead and the textile cord need to be kept in optimum conditions of cleanliness and checked periodically.
Most of the fixing plates for winches are universal and should be modified to be mounted. In the project we considered to maintain a clear space between the winch and the radiators which are located immediately behind the same. Furthermore, in the front, has been designed an anchoring portion of the mouth without any thickness for the achievement of the front profile of the bumper and all this allows to not encumber in any way the front bumper of the substantial tensile forces during use of the winch ; the entire traction is discharged at the level of the frame. The presence of the plate winch steel 6 mm thick and the winch itself, also serve as an important shelter for the radiators that, in the front part, are very exposed to possible shocks during off-road use. Side of the plate, are added two bars, one right and one left to keep the logic of a original bumper and iron to fix the wiper water tank and an electric.
