I just traded in my F-250 but I pulled off my Warn 12000 winch. I just bought a new (my first) 2005 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins 4wd crew cab. I want to be able to use my winch front or rear. I need a front receiver hitch mount. I do not want to alter the front of my truck. I also need a cradle for my winch. Warn only seems to recommend a 9000# max. Any recommendations?

This new Dodge rocks. I have always had Chevy and Ford - I think I am hooked.

Thanks in advanced for the help.

Regards,
D.

Hmmm...good question.

Did ya know the Power Wagon comes with this winch:

Dodge Ram Winch

  • Warn winches feature an automatic load holding brake, a 3 stage planetary gearset with Hawse Fairlead and heavy steel cable
  • A remote control with lead included
  • Requires mounting kit for installation (Sold Seperately)
  • Warn HD 12,000lb Winch features HP motor w/thermo protection, low volt interrupt
  • HD waterproofing, auto brak, 3 stage planetary gear, 315:1 gear ratio
  • 90 Foot high strength 7/15" cable</li>
  • 12 Foot remote and cleavis hook</li>
  • Same as production Power Wagon</li>
  • Available for 2005 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 4X4 With Gasoline Engines
  • Covered by Mopar's 12 Month/12,000 Mile Parts and Accessories Warranty
  • Coming Soon!

I'm thinking you could call Warn to see if your winch will fit in the Ram's winch cradle...if it does, then get ahold of Dodge or Mopar and order it via part number. I'm thinking if it doesn't fit, you'll only need a few minor alterations to the cradle; sheez, being they're both 12,000 lbs, I'm sure they have to be very similar.

Keep us posted!

ddivinia you'd be surprised how well the 4.56's accomodates our auto trannies :p guys in the 1500's are getting better gas mileage with 4.56's than 3.55's or even 3.92's

I havnt seen anyone run a front receiver hitch. It should not be too hard to do as long as you are not to worried about ground clearance.

Yeah - big bumper would work but I really want to be able to use the winch front and rear. Also, I do not want some huge bumper up front.

Thanks,
D.
