Video Transcript for Bulldog Winch Electric Winch BDW20155 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're gonna take a look at the Bulldog winch hitch receiver mounting plate for 2" hitches. Now this will offer a portable mounting option for your winch. Your winch will basically mount onto this mounting plater, has the adjustable handle positions right here, make it very easy to transport your winch from different vehicles. It is designed to fit into any standard 2" by 2" hitch receiver. They do even include the hitch pin and clip to install it into your hitch receiver. Now this is used for truck winches up to 12,000 pound capacity that uses a standard 10 and 4 1/2" mounting bolt pattern.

You can see the bolt pattern they have on the mounting plate. Now one last note. The capacity on this is based on the capacity of your vehicle receiver and this also will not fit large body truck winches because those winches are too heavy for portable use, too large to fit onto this plate and it will not fit the alpha series because the frames on the alpha winches are too large to fit into this mount.You can see they do have the three different holes at the bottom so you can put the bolt through there just to adjust whatever position you need these handles in. But again, you just have your winch mounted on here. You can grab it by the handle, slide it into the hitch receiver and then when you're done, you can just pull it right out.

But that should do it for the review on the Bulldog winch hitch receiver mounting plate for 2" hitches.

Bulldog Winch Receiver Mount Kit - 2" x 2" - BDW20155

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (71 Customer Reviews)


I'm off to overland in Texas and wanted you to know that the hitch and winch carrier are perfect. Using quick connectors, I can use ir on the front and rear.

Removing it also saves on gas.

It works great with a moulded number, saving on buying a specialized steel bumper and other expensive attachments.

I like that I can still have all the internal mud guards and brush cover without having to take them off and not be able to have them on.



The overall build and construction of the mount is actually quite good, I have no complaints there. It seems to be made well and is as advertised. Unfortunately, however, that’s the only good news: not only did the package arrive almost completely destroyed but because of this several pieces of hardware were missing. Still, I was willing to overlook this as it could’ve been partially the fault of FedEx/ UPS. The reason that I am only giving it 1 star is because, contrary to the answer given in the Q&A, this mount DOES NOT fit my Warn Zeon 12-S winch. The reply when asked about fitment was “Yes, the Bulldog Winch Receiver Mount Kit part # BDW20155 will work with the Warn Zeon 12-S Platinum Winch 95960 as they both use the same industry standard 10" long x 4-1/2" wide mounting pattern.” As long as you are willing to do without the handles this answer is true. Misleading, but true. It may be worth noting that as long as you have a winch that is smaller in overall size than the Warn Zeon 12-S, it should work just fine.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. I have reached out to the manufacturer and confirmed that this mounting plate does prevent clearance for the handles on the Zeon winch. There is another winch plate that would work as it is designed for oversize frame winches up to 12k. It is part # BDW20011.


Product arrived on time packaged well no damages because of my setup I have to get a extension to clear my current brush guard however was all put together when came out of the box but 4 bolts for the handles super easy to use holds my smittybilt 12k winch perfectly and fits nice in the receiver without a lot of wiggle very good product

Etrailer Expert

Mike L.


Keep in mind that using an extension will lower the capacity of the hitch to a degree, because of the extra leverage exerted especially if the winch is pulling at an angle. If the extension were to break under load, it could lead to injury.


I picked this winch from etrailer as it provided an incredible value at the time of purchase vs other option here and from other retailers. It ended up being way overkill for what I use it for, but I never have to worry about overloading it either. Went together well and mounted up like it should to the Bulldog receiver mount I got too (hitch plate welded/mounted on car hauler, winch is removable and not subject to road grim ever). Plan on years of service from this combination!


Quick service…. looks sturdy, maybe a little iffy for 12,000 pound winch. A snatch block will fix that load issue. The paint is already peeling on the corners. I previously ordered a Curtis Front tire carrier, different vender , however it will NOT fit a Dually TIRE. so planning on placing a spare tire on the platform and securing with ratchet straps.


Good concept, but extremely flimsy, as it relies only on the hitch receiver for stability. It definitely needs some additional parts to keep it from wiggling, bending and rocking when the winch (SmittyBuilt) is in use. I doubt that it could even pull my little Ridgeline out of a ditch without deforming or ripping apart, but I'm afraid to test it.


Came as described, packaging was beat up pretty bad but nothing wrong with the plate. Holds my Badlands winch no problem, this is a better solution to needing a winch other than spending [money] on a front bumper with a winch mount.


I bought this for my Badlands ZXR12000 and it fit perfectly.


As usual, another great experience with etrailer. Shipped super quick. Love the handles, which are a must-have if you will be hitch mounting and dismounting a heavy portable winch a lot. Handles are also adjustable so allow for a lot of different winch sizes.


This fit my Badland 12k winch very well, it's very heavy duty and I don't worry about the ability to handle what I throw at it, not to forget the price was very reasonable thanks etrailer.


Fast delivery! Looks Great!


Easy setup for my winch and it makes it easy to get mounted to my trailer hitch. A great product if you want to have a winch but don’t want a permanent mount.


This cradle is light and compact and looks pretty sturdy. Since tow receivers are only rated for 5000# and my winch is rated for 9000#, I will run my winch cable through a snatch block and back to a hook on my tow receiver.


The Bulldog Winch Receiver is a must-have. Fit my needs perfectly. Easy to use and makes using the Bulldog winch that much easier.


Well Built. Much more substantial handles compared to the bent tubing on others. Love how the handles are adjustable to fit the winch. Easy to use.


Not too impressed. It seems pretty lightweight for a winch carrier. In all fairness I have not used it yet but that is my first impression


Very well made! Strong and stout, Don get the cheep one fellas, you or someone else may be depending on it. Haven't gotten my winch yet but when I do I will post pictures.
As always, a great experience working with and purchasing from etrailer!


very happy with the winch and mount, instructions were easily understood and the finished product was all it was said to be. will continue to deal with this business as they are professionals.


Winch receiver mount is well made and works great with the Badland Apex winch.


Nice and strong. Just a bit too tight for our warn 8000 winch. Tight squeeze, but made it work aok!


Totally pleased with mount.
Much better
quality than I thought I would get for the price !!
Putting a 12,000 lbs winch on it, not worried about the mount at all.
Once again etrailer delivers !!!


great price, fast shipping. exactly as described. have purchased many items from etrailer and always satisfied.


Well Built, Real Decent Quality, And Easy Installation. A #1.


Came in 2 days after I placed my order. Packaged well and everything as it was advertised! Appears to be quality winch cradle at a great price.


Working great with my 12000lb winch. thanks. works with my truck and car hauler

  • How To Mount a Winch On the Front of a 2007 Hummer H3
    I do have a winch mounting option for a 2007 Hummer H3 but it requires a front mount trailer hitch and hitch mounted winch tray like the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 31270 and Bulldog Winch Receiver Mount Kit part # BDW20155 or you could go with the ComeUp Off-Road Winch w/ Mounting Plate for 2" Hitches part # CU854768.

  • Front Winch Mount Options for 2004 Toyota 4Runner
    I have a couple solutions that may work for you, since, like you pointed out, there are no custom fit front mount hitches, winch mounts or bumpers for your 2004 Toyota 4Runner. One option is to use the Bulldog Winch Universal Winch Mounting Plate, # BDW20008. You will need to find a sturdy location on your 4Runner and drill mounting holes to bolt the plate. You also have the option to weld it in place for a permanent installation. The # BDW20008 is designed to fit the a 10 x 4-1/2 mounting...

  • What Front Hitch and Winch do You Recommend for My 2022 Ram 2500?
    As far as a front hitch for your 2022 RAM 2500, I recommend the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # C31089. The hitch is great because the crosstubes will be completely hidden under your fascia for a clean look. Also, in addition to the 9,000 pounds of maximum line pull, the Curt Front Hitch is assembled here in the U.S.A. For a hitch-mounted winch, I recommend the Bulldog Winch Standard Series Off-Road Winch - Synthetic Rope - 8k # BDW10044 along with the Bulldog...

  • Is There a Ball Mount With an Accessory Receiver
    A multipurpose ball mount is what you're looking for, and we have just that with the Multipurpose Ball Mount with 2" Receiver # D210. This ball mount fits in 2" hitches and has a 2-1/4" drop with a towing capacity of 7,500 lbs and tongue weight capacity of 750 lbs. The 2" receiver on top is for accessories only so it could work with something like Winch Mounting Plate # BDW20155. The ball mount requires a hitch ball with a 1" diameter shank, such as the 2" # 63845 or 1-7/8" # 19260.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2011 Ford F-350 Extraction Winch
    Your 2011 Ford F-350 with a GVWR of 10,800lbs is the maximum amount the vehicle can weigh fully loaded. Depending on your configuration your curb weight is likely between 6,000-7,500lbs. Since you plan on using for a winch and mud will be involved I recommend the EcoHitch Hidden Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # EH59FR. It has a maximum line pull rating of 10,000lbs. By using the Bulldog Winch Receiver Mount Kit # BDW20155 you will have the capability to move the winch to either...

  • Can Front Receiver be Installed on 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited w/Base Plates Already Installed
    The base plates and front mount hitches (which you would use to mount a winch) install at the same places on the frame of the 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited so you cannot have both at the same time. I recommend putting a winch at the back of the Jeep. For a 2 inch trailer hitch you can use the Bulldog Winch receiver mount # BDW20155 . Then you can attach a Superwinch electric winch. I have linked the Superwinch models for you.

  • Front Mount Hitch Recommendation for Adding Winch to 2021 Toyota Tacoma
    I recommend going with the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31075 for your 2021 Toyota Tacoma because it will be easier to install and has the same line pull rating as the Draw-Tite # 65070. The only reason I would recommend the Draw-Tite over the Curt is if you are going to be pushing that 350 lb vertical load limit, but even then you'll need to ensure that your truck has that high of a weight rating in the front. I've attached a photo of the Curt hitch installed on a Tacoma...

    The Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit part # BDW20207 is exactly what you are going to need to power even the most heavy duty of winches whether that be on the back of your truck or tongue of your trailer. The set of cables are going to run from either battery to the rear of the truck. The kit then comes with a separate quick connect fitting that you will need to install on the wire leads for your winch. This will the allow you to easily connect and disconnect the winch from the truck and install...

The available front hitches that do fit are Draw-Tite hitch # 65022 and Curt hitch # 31114. Both are rated for 9,000 pounds line pull and 500 pounds vertical load.

    The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65078 is a confirmed fit for your 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500. This hitch is rated for 9000 lbs line pull as you stated and a trailer weight of 5,000 lbs. If you were to use an electric winch like the Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch - Wireless Remote - Wire Rope - Roller Fairlead - 12,000 lbs # BDW10039, then the maximum line pull is 12,000 lbs for a static load or 120,000 lbs for a rolling load.

The only mount that is available is a receiver mount like the Bulldog Winch Receiver Mount Kit - 2" x 2" # BDW20155 or the Curt Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate # C31010. For this you will need a front mount receiver if you don't already have one.

  • Can an DC Winch Work with AC Power Plug in the Back of a Honda Ridgeline
    There are AC powered winches available but Dutton-Lainson winch # DL25215 cannot be wired to work with AC power. The AC powered winches though do not go up to 9,000 pounds and require 115 volt or 120 volt depending on the winch model. Your best option is to set your Ridgeline up with a DC winch and use the vehicle battery to power it. ComeUp winch # CU856333 is rated at 9,000 pounds. You could mount it to hitch receiver mount # BDW20155. And to wire it to the truck battery you can use...

  • How To Use Front Mount Hitch and Bull Bar Together on a 2012 Toyota Tacoma 4x4
    The best fit front mount trailer hitch we have for your 2012 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 is the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 65070. The reason that this is the best fit trailer hitch is because it allows you to retain the skid shield unlike the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 31313. Unfortunately, you will most likely need to remove your bull bar as it will mount in the same location as either front mount hitch. This is the case for most vehicles though so it's...

    The Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31083 and Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65067 are currently the only 2 front mount receivers that are custom fit for your 2015 Ford F-150 XLT. Both receiver have the same 9,000lb line pull rating for using your winch and both will support a tongue weight of up to 500lbs which will allow you to use it for other things during the summer.

  • Is it Okay to Use Winch with More Capacity than Front Hitch of Vehicle for Recovery
    If you were to be in a situation that would put all of the winches strength to use (which would be unlikely) it would end up damaging either your vehicle or the hitch. Now the likelihood of you being in a situation where you would be pulling 10k worth of force-and your Wrangler not moving to offset it would be pretty unlikely. The line pull of the part # 65069 is 9k which is pretty close to the capacity of a 10k winch and the winch mount part # BDW20155.

  • How Can a Westin Grill Guard and Winch Be Install On 2005 Dodge Ram Pickup?
    I have an option to get your truck setup with a grill guard and winch, but Westin does not make a Grill guard for your 2005 Dodge Ram that has a winch mount, so there's no hardware available to mount a guard of that style to your truck. Your only option for a grill guard is going to be the Westin # 40-1205 in black or # 45-1200 in chrome. These will fit no matter if your truck is a 1500/2500/3500, and are custom designed just for your truck. To add a winch you'd need to add a front mount...

I've seen folks use a receiver mount in conjunction with something like the # E-11 welded to a car trailer to provide a stable quick-disconnect mount, if that's what you have in mind for your Bulldog # BDW15020 winch. If you decide to do something along those lines, it's best to have a professional to handle that type of fabrication work, to ensure that...
