Video Transcript for Review of Bulldog Winch Electric Winch Parts - Toyota Tacoma Winch Mount - BDW23001

Ellen: Hey everyone. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com, and today we're taking a quick look at the Bulldog Winch off-road winch mounting plate. This is going to be a specific fit for your vehicle. In this case, it fits the Toyota Tacoma, so it's going to work for that generation three 2016 to 2019 Toyota Tacoma. It fits in with your factory mounting points, so whenever you take off the front fascia and the grill, there's going to be a couple of studs that this is going to fit over and you'll reuse the hardware from your Toyota to mount this in place. It does come with instructions that do a pretty good job of lining out all the connections and all the fasteners that you've got to take off in between.

It has pictures, too, which always helps. That's something that I like to see in the instructions to make it a little easier to do.The nice thing about this is that once you have it in place, all of this bracketry is going to be hidden away. The only thing that you'll see is the fairing lead coming off the front. You might see just a little bit of this bracket. But you can really make it as innocuous as you want.

It also comes with a drilling template for your front bumper, so you can mount that up and have it lined up so you can cut out a hole to allow that fairing lead to come through. You can either cut it out so that the whole fairing lead is visible or just the opening, so it's an even more discreet.Also, another little thing that they did with this template is that it's a sticker. It's not just a piece of paper that you have to try to tape up or anything like that. You can peel out the backing, stick it to your bumper, drill everything out that you need to, and then peel it off. That's a really smart little thing that Bulldog Winch included with that, which is just something a little bit different than some other things that I've seen out there, so I just wanted to point that out that it does come with that.All in all, this is going to be really sturdy mount for your winch.

It gives you a nice sleek look. It makes it look pretty much factory from Toyota. It has a standard mounting pattern for our winch to go onto, so it's going to be your 10 by four and a half bolt pattern. There is a little bit of wiggle room front to back for that so you can adjust your winch mounting. Then this front plate that the fairing lead goes onto is also adjustable, so you can get that dialed into how far out you want that fairing lead to come.

It does not come with the winch, but we do have a lot of options for those here etrailer.com, so if you need to pick one up, you can find one that's going to meet your needs. Of course, it's always better to go with something that's going to be plenty powerful to winch your Toyota out of any kind of tricky situation.Again, as far as mounting this up, it's going to be pretty simple, just mounts with those factory bolts on your Toyota. You do have to take off the fascia, as I mentioned, and it will replace the aluminum bumper. There's like a crush bumper on the inside of the fascia, so this is going to kind of take the place of that, but you'll be able to reuse the hardware to get that in place. I think this is a pretty nice mount. It should look really good on your truck and should make it a little easier to get out of those tricky situations.But that's pretty much going to do it for our look at the Bulldog Winch off-road mounting winch plate. I hope this video has been helpful in deciding that this is going to be the right one for you. If not, we do have other options available here etrailer.com, as well as winches to fit with this plate. Thanks for watching.

Bulldog Winch Off-Road Winch Mounting Plate for Toyota Tacoma - BDW23001

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (11 Customer Reviews)

The Bulldog Winch Mounting plate was delivered on time but the box was torn open. All the hardware was still in the box. It’s very well built and fits perfectly. My 17 year old and 14 year old grandson’s dismantled the Tacoma and installed it. I just sat there and supervised. I’m very pleased with the product. I will say I went with a Smittybuilt gen 2 winch because I thought the gen 3 would be to big. I was right. You are limited on room.

Looks and works awesome, there is 4 lower brackets to hold the bumper with 4 screws that you will loose but bumper seems steady I’m taking the truck off road this weekend let’s see how it holds.

It looks good! Can’t wait to test it out! Some minor cutting on the mount was needed.



- BDW23001
by:

There's only one problem with this product: Because of the design, which wraps underneath the frame for strength (big plus), you cannot re-install the factory recovery point (the hook). The plate is too wide, and covers up one of the mounting holes. The quality is excellent, and the weight savings (if that's important) are substantial, as this is one of the lightest mounting plates out there. Everything lined up perfectly, and the build quality is obvious when you look at the welds, seams, fit & finish. Just that one flaw, which for some - is pretty big.

I have a 2013 Tacoma and went ahead and bought the one for a 2016 to 2020 because nobody had one for that year. Bolted right up to the frame but had to do some minor fab work. Very very happy with how it turned out. Thank you etrailer.

Box did show up open, all parts there though. Think a similar customer experienced this as well. Did this with a Smittybilt XRC 9500 winch and fits/looks awesome…

Quick delivery and great product. My truck looks stock. I bought a license plate hinge from amazon and you simply lift the license plate when you need to use the winch.

Ask the Experts about this Bulldog Winch Accessories and Parts

  • Truck Winch Compatibility with Off-Road Winch Mounting Plate for Toyota Tacoma
    The Bulldog Winch Off-Road Winch Mounting Plate for Toyota Tacoma # BDW23001 will fit any winch that has a standard 10 inch by 4-1/2 inch mounting pattern. This is the vast majority of winches under 12K, but you will want to make sure you get one strong enough to pull your truck out if you get stuck. I've linked the page to all of our Truck Winches to assist. I recommend the Bulldog DC12.0 Integrated Off-Road Winch - Wire Rope - Roller Fairlead - 12,000 lbs # BD500601 which is a...

  • How Much Does the Bulldog Winch Off-Road Winch Mounting Plate for Toyota Tacoma Weigh
    The Bulldog Winch Off-Road Winch Mounting Plate for Toyota Tacoma # BDW23001 weighs 35-lbs. There is not a relocation kit for the power steering cooler line when installing these winch plates, but it's recommended typically that you just bend the hard line out of the way as much as needed. You won't need to completely relocate the line in this case though.

  • Will the Bulldog Winch Mounting Plate for Toyota Tacoma Fit a Warn EVO 10s Winch on 2018 Tacoma
    Yes. The Bulldog Winch Off-Road Winch Mounting Plate for Toyota Tacoma # BDW23001 will fit on your 2018 Toyota Tacoma, since it's a Gen III Tacoma. When it comes to your Warn EVO 10s winch, it does look like that winch has the standard 10" x 4-1/2" mounting pattern on the bottom, so it will work with this winch mounting plate.

  • Is There a Weight Capacity for the Bulldog Winch Off-Road Winch Mounting Plate for a '19 Tacoma
    I reached out to my contact at Bulldog Winch who said that while the Bulldog Winch Off-Road Winch Mounting Plate # BDW23001 doesn't have a max weight capacity it is strong enough to safely recover your 2019 Toyota Tacoma. Essentially it can handle up to a 12,000 lb winch, like part # BDW10046, and since your Tacoma weighs much less than that you are good to go.

  • Can the Bulldog Hidden Winch Mount be Used with Other Manufacturer's Winches
    Great News! The Bulldog Winch Off-Road Winch Mounting Plate part # BDW23001 uses the very common bolt pattern of 10" x 4.5". The holes are also oblonged front to back a little (about 3/4") to give you some freedom to move the winch forward or rear to suite the installation. Check out the video I linked that Ellen did here at etrailer.

  • Winch Mount Compatibility with 2006 Toyota Tacoma
    The Bulldog Winch Off-Road Winch Mounting Plate for Toyota Tacoma # BDW23001 is a custom off-road mounting plate for Toyota Tacoma Gen III 2016-2019. It will not fit your 2006 Toyota Tacoma. My recommendation is to use the Westin MAX Winch Mounting Tray - Black Powder Coated Steel # 46-21605 or the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 31313 with Curt Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate # C31010.

  • Does Bulldog Winch Off-Road Winch Mounting Plate for Toyota Tacoma Fit Badlands ZXR12000 Winch
    Thanks so much for the photo showing the mounting dimensions of your Badlands ZXR12000 Winch, it was super helpful. What it shows is that the winch does have the standard mounting dimensions of 10" x 4-1/2", which means it will absolutely fit on the mounting plate you asked about for your Tacoma, which is the following part: - Bulldog Winch Off-Road Winch Mounting Plate for Toyota Tacoma # BDW23001 The mounting holes on this plate are the same 10" x 4-1/2" dimension, so your Badlands...

  • Will the Bulldog Winch Off-Road Winch Mounting Plate for Toyota Tacoma Fit on a 2013 Toyota 4Runner?
    I have a solution for you. I called my contact at Bulldog Winch, and he said that they have not tested the fit of a Bulldog Winch Off-Road Winch Mounting Plate for Toyota Tacoma # BDW23001 on a 2013 Toyota 4Runner. However, since this winch mounting plate was customized for 2016-2019 Gen III Tacomas, the mounting plate will most likely not fit a 2013 Toyota 4Runner without drilling or possible welding. With that being said, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate...

  • LED Light Bar For Bulldog Winch Off-Road Winch Mounting Plate # BDW23001 On A Toyota Tacoma
    Since the Bulldog Winch Mounting Plate # BDW23001 is low profile, you'll have plenty of room to mount a light bar on your Tacoma. That being said, the bracket is not designed to have a light bar added to it. You can put the light bar right above the winch. If you want a light bar that's around the same length as your winch, this one is 12" long # SHK-BV6WPA. If you want one that's a big larger, this one would look sweet with the curve # SHK-BV6WPA.

  • Best Front Mounted Hitch for Winch on 2020 Toyota Tacoma
    Due to the way the 2020 Toyota Tacoma is designed, any front mounted hitch would require some kind of alteration to the front air dam. Out of the options though, I believe the least intrusive front hitch is the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31075. I attached the installation instruction below. You will still need to remove your tow loop and your lower air dam at first, but with this hitch, you can put back the air dam after some trimming. It's not that hard of an install...

  • Will the Bulldog Winch Off-Road Plate for 2018 Toyota Tacoma Work With Aftermarket Grille Guard
    In order to have both a grille guard and winch mounting plate installed together on the front of the vehicle you must choose one that has both integrated into one another as they will not work together unless this is done because they generally mount in the same location. The best option we have for this on a 2018 Toyota Tacoma is the Westin Sportsman Grille Guard with Winch Plate part # 40-93885. That said, we also have the Westin MAX Bull Bar with Winch Mounting Tray part # 46-41605-23885...

  • Winch Mounting Plate For 2009 Toyota Tacoma
    We do offer the Westin MAX Winch Mounting Tray - Black Powder Coated Steel # 46-21605 which is a direct fit for your 2009 Toyota Tacoma. The Westin MAX Winch Mounting Tray is designed to fit most winches rated 8,000 to 12,000 pounds such as # CU856333. Unfortunately the Bulldog Winch Off-Road Winch Mounting Plate for Toyota Tacoma # BDW23001 is not a fit for your 2009 Toyota Tacoma as it is intended to fit 3rd Generation Toyota Tacoma years 2016-2019.
