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:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (66 Customer Reviews)


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
Bulldog Winch Hitch Mounted Winch Mounting Plate with Handles - 2" x 2" Hitch
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 04/07/2022


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


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!


I like it seems really sturdy very happy


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.


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

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.
-- Etrailer Expert Mike L - 03/21/2019


Well thought out design and great quali ty.


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.


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.


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.


Great quality and fit perfect!


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.


great service heavy-duty product


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.


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


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 !!!


Worked very well with my setup


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 much to say. Pretty simple idea. Bolt pattern lines up with a warn winch good. Fairly sturdy.


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!


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


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.


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.


Extremely sturdy and rugged winch mount...nice addition to my truck.

  • Will Badlands Winch Fit on Bulldog Winch Mount BDW20155
    I asked Bulldog Winch about whether their mounts like the # BDW20155 can fit other brand winches and they stated that while they don't test fit their mounts with other winches they do make them to be as universal as possible and all of the big name winch brands are known to fit since they all try to use the same mounting pattern.

  • Warn Zeon 8 Winch Confirmed Fit with Bulldog Winch Receiver Mount Kit
    The Bulldog Winch Receiver Mount Kit - 2" x 2" # BDW20155 is a fit for any winch up to 12K with 10 x 4.5 inch mounting bolt patterns. I was able to find the Warn Zeon 8 online and it does have this same mounting pattern so it is confirmed to fit the Bulldog mount.

  • Hitch Mount for Front Hitch to Use with Winch Powerplant and Compressor
    While we don't carry the Winch Powerplant that has the air compressor built in we do know that it is designed to fit on standard winch mounts so the Bulldog Winch Receiver Mount Kit # BDW20155 that you referenced would fit and work great. The handles of it also make it really easy to install and remove from the hitch too. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Will the Bulldog Winch Receiver Mount Kit Work With a Ramsey RE1200 Winch
    The Bulldog Winch Receiver Mount Kit part # BDW20155 has an industry standard mounting pattern (10" x 4.5") which all winches up to 12,000 lbs share so yes it will work with a Ramsey RE1200 Winch.

  • Will the Superwinch S9000 Work on a Mounting Plate at the Rear Hitch Receiver of a 2012 Dodge Ram
    The Superwinch S9000 Heavy Duty Recovery Winch is confirmed to work with the Hitch Mounted Winch Mounting Plate # BDW20155. In order to install the winch at the rear of your vehicle you will also need to install a wiring kit like # BDW20206 because the wiring located at your bumper is not nearly adequate for the amperage draw of a winch. This will also give you quick connect terminals to make installing and removing the winch easy.

  • Winch Mount Compatible with Kubota RTV900 with 5000 lb Winch
    The Bulldog Winch Receiver Mount Kit - 2" x 2" # BDW20155 is a fit for any 2 inch receiver, so if you have a 2 inch receiver on your Kubota that can handle the line pull of your winch, you will be fine. We also have a custom Kubota RTV mount for your RTV900. You may be interested in the Bulldog Winch Custom-Fit Steel Winch Mount # BDW15172.

  • Parts Needed to Wire a Winch on the Rear of a 2016 Ford F-350
    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...

  • 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.

  • Availability of Front Receiver for 2017 Jeep Wrangler that Attaches to Outside of Frame Rails
    Unfortunately, the front receivers offered for the 2017 Wrangler JK fit to the inside of the frame rails, we don't offer one that installs in any other manner. One option that would allow you to use both the winch and the front mounted receiver would be to use a receiver winch mount like # BDW20155. If you went this route, you could temporarily disconnect the winch when the receiver is needed for other purposes by using a quick disconnect on the wiring. I've linked to the quick disconnects...

  • Hitch Mount Recommendation that Fits 12k Bulldog Winch # BDW10039

  • Can Bulldog Winch Hitch Mount Fit Front and Rear Hitch of 2009 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
    The hitch mounted winch mount from Bulldog Winches part # BDW20155 would allow you to mount a winch at either the front or the rear of a truck like your 2009 Chevy Silverado 2500HD. For a front of vehicle wiring kit that has 2 gauge wire you'd want the part # BDW20205 and then for a rear vehicle kit you'd want the part # BDW20207.

    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.

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...

  • Does Power Wiring on Badlands Apex 12000 Winch Need to be Stripped for Anderson Connector
    The Bulldog Winch Receiver Mount Kit # BDW20155 has the standard 10 x 4.5" mounting bolt pattern which will match up exactly with your Badland Apex 12000. As for the wiring, you will need to route the wire from your 4Runner battery and mount the Anderson connector at the back of your truck and then strip the wiring on your winch to connect with the extra Anderson connector that comes in the Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit # BDW20206. I definitely understand where you're coming from about...

    Curt front-mount hitch # 31026 is a confirmed fit on your 1992 Ford F-150 and to help you confirm the right clearance for your application with a winch mount I went to our warehouse and measured one key dimension that will help you determine this.

  • Front Hitch and Winch Plate for 2017 Ford F-250 for Mounting Winch at Front of Truck
    Your biggest issue is going to be that the grille guards and the front hitches occupy the same area and use the same install points on the frame of the vehicle so there's no easy way (if at all) to install both at the same time. If you aren't super attached to the grille guard idea I'd go with just a front hitch so you could use a removable winch plate like the # BDW20155 at both the front and the rear of the vehicle.

    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...

    There is not a custom winch mount for your model ATV, however if you have a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver like # C45006, you could use a Winch Receiver Mount like # BDW20155. With a mount combination like this, you could absolutely use an electric winch. My recommendation is the Bulldog Winch Powersports Series ATV Winch # BDW15014 which will work very well for your application and give you easy to use controls at your handlebars.

  • 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...
