If you are looking at building your own front bumper, one of our winch mount plates will make a great starting point. These winch mount plates bolt on in the factory frame holes, and are made from CNC bent 1/4" steel plate. We built them with two inch receiver tubing so that you can use a receiver shackle for a pull point or a recovery point. We also predrilled holes for easy winch mounting. If you can bend tube this winch mount plate is all you need to build a great custom bumper. Note: Some winches may require slight trimming or clearance of the grill.
AMAZINGLY EASY to install! Harder is disassembling the factory bumper [PRO TIP: remove the bumper first; then you can easily remove the valence. The winch mount is SOLID -- holes align perfectly with the threaded bolt holes (M12) in the frame. Winch mounting holes are also spot on. I chopped the factory bumper to fit the winch and Trail Gear mount -- check it out on my IG: @madeinjapanoverland

Product was as described and advertised. Well made and mounted right up with no modifications.
Sorry but Trail-Gear does not offer this for your vehicle at this time.
It says it is for a 3rd gen 4runner but only states up to 95. 3rd gen includes up until 02. will this fit on an 02? also if the plastic valence is trimmed would it fit with a stock bumper?
Answer this question
I show it only working on the earlier 4runners. I went to Trail-gear's website and only fits to 95.

What winches are compatible with this mount?
Will I have to remove the bumper to get this on?
Answer this question
fish n' chips-
Good question. The Trail Gear winch mount is meant as a starter platform for a do it your self front bumper. You will have to custom fabricate a bumper around this as the stock bumper will not fit with this installed. Trail gear does not specify which winches fit this bracket only that some larger winches may need trimming. I would recommend the Smittybilt XRC-8 winch you can find here http://jo.my/tk5ufq
