Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Electric Winch 6495 Review

Today we're going to review part number 6495. This is the Draw Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver Winch Mounting Plate. Now this part is designed to install into your front receiver hitch and it allows you a spot to where you could mount your winch to and also easily remove it out of the hitch receiver if necessary. Does have a 2 inch solid shank right here to install into a 2 inch receiver opening. The receiver mount right up here itself is all wielded, made of a 1/4 inch thick plate, very heavy and if you'll notice on the plate itself it does come with 2 sets of 4 mounting holes and they are drilled at the 2 industry standard measurements for winches. Basically the inner set of holes if we measure center to center we're going to be right at 6 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 inches for the inner holes. The outer holes will be the industry standard 10 inches by also 4 1/2 inches.

They've got 2 different sets that you can use for the majority of the winches out there. Has a nice durable black powdered coat finish helps resist corrosion. Right up here you can see this are your fairly mounting points, you can mount your fairly to this. Once your winch is on here, your cable or rope would come out this way through the fairly. We also offer a optional handle guard kit. It's part number 698O that we sell separately.

It is listed on this product page as related product and what it is nice about that they are 2 handles, big, large metal handles and they would bolt underneath onto the plate and then with those handles it will make it easier to pick up and install into the vehicle, makes installation a lot easier and because the handles are right on the side here and they are very heavy duty. They also protect the winch from getting hit, it protects it. Now this is a universal design and because of the dual mounting patterns, it will support most major winch models out there. Would include the Ramsey models, some of the Warn models, some of the super winch models and numerous other brands that haze those bolt patterns. Now a few measurements on this, I want to give you the overall length and width of this. If we put a ruler on, it's going to be 13 inches and if we measure, and if you lift this up, from here to here that's going to be right at 7 3/4 inches and then the shank measurement from the edge of the plate to the end of the shank is going to be right at 7 3/8 inches long.

But again what you would end up doing is mounting your winch to one of those bolt patterns and then what you'd be able to do is slide this right into your front hitch, put your pin and clip in, and you'd be already to go. That should do it for the review on part number 6495, the Draw Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver Winch Mounting Plate. .

  • Hitch-Mounted Winch Mounting Plate for Badlands Winch
  • We offer several hitch-type winch mounts that fit a 2-inch hitch. These include the Curt # C31009 with handles, Curt # C31010 without handles, the Draw-Tite # 6495 and Bulldog # BDW20011 among others. All are shown on the linked page. Most winches will bolt right up to these mounts since they use industry-standard mounting hole spacing but it is possible that a certain winch might req

  • Measurement of Curt Front Hitch 31026 for Ford F-150 to Determine Winch Mount Compatibility
  • 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. Please refer to the linked photo. I measured from the front mounting holes on the hitch mounting brackets to the hitch pin hole in the receiver tube and found that the hole center to hole center distance was 4-1/4-inches. So if you check...

  • Where to Mount Winch To Pull Vehicles Up Onto Car Hauler
  • Since hitch adapters like what you mentioned end up cutting the capacity of the hitch they are installed in by half the best solution is to mount the winch to the trailer so that you can avoid all of that. You could purchase a Hitch Receiver tube and have it welded to the the trailer frame like part # E-9. With a piece like this welded to the frame, you could use the Winch Plate # 6495 mount to attach your winch. Then you could use the winch part # 1220210 to pull things up onto your...

  • Is there a Hitch-Mounted Winch Mounting Plate for a Warn 8274 Winch
  • Draw-Tite winch mounting plate # 6495 will work with most major winch brands. The same goes for Curt mounting plate # C31010. I have included pictures showing the mounting hole patterns for each so you can compare them to your Warn winch to determine if either will work. Even if a winch is not listed on the page that doesn't mean it won't fit which is why the hole spacing measurements are important.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver Plate and Wiring for a Warn VR8 Winch
  • I checked with Warn and the mounting hole spacing for the VR8 winch is 10 inches side to side and 4-1/2 inches front to back with the overall length of the winch at 20.7 inches and 6.3 inches front to back. Based on that you can use Curt mount # C31009 or # C31010, Draw-Tite # 6495, or Superwinch mount # SW2050. At most your winch can draw up to 457 amps and a 650 cold cranking amp minimum battery is recommended. Based on these figures I would go with wiring and quick disconnect kit...

  • Front Hitch and Winch Plate that Fits 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited
  • I wish we did, but at this time we do not have a winch mount for the factory front or rear bumper of your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited. Only solution we'd have is a front hitch like the part # 65079 with a hitch mounted winch plate like the part # 6495.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 1964 Chevy C/K 20 4x4 and 2001 Ford F-350 Front Hitch
  • Although the Draw-Tite # 40050 is only for 1964 Chevy C/K 8 foot bed 2WD as you stated, there are other options available for your 4x4 truck. I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75034 which is a fit for your truck if you have a standard bumper. If you have a deep drop bumper, then I recommend the # 41504. All of these hitch receivers are compatible with the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer Hitches...

  • Front-Mount Hitch for 2016 Ram 2500 Diesel 4x4 for Use with Electric Winch
  • I recommend Draw-Tite front-mount 2-inch hitch # 65063 for your son-in-law's 2016 Dodge Ram 2500 diesel 4x4 so long as the truck has tow hooks. If not, then instead use Curt hitch # C31015. Either will enable use of a hitch-type winch mount such as Draw-Tite # 6495. The winch mount can be locked to the hitch using pin lock # 7683. The Draw-Tite winch mount works great with winches from Warn, Superwinch and Ramsey, among others, including the Super-Winch Heavy-Duty Recovery Winch # 1917...

  • How To Use A Front Mount Winch On A 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

I have included an installation video of this hitch on a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited for you. Depending on the winch in which you will be using, I recommend using a front mount trailer hitch winch plate such as the Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver Winch Mounting Plate part...

  • Mounting Plate for Warn Winch 8274 and Front Hitch for 1993 Ford F-350
  • There is a winch mounting plate that is confirmed to fit your Warn winch M8274, though it is not from Bulldog. Instead, you'd want the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver Winch Mounting Plate # 6495. To use it with your 1993 Ford F-350 the front mounted hitch I recommend is the Curt # 31311, which is a confirmed fit for two wheel drive versions of your truck and is a bolt-in installation. I've added a link to a video review of the winch mounting plate for you to take a look at.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch and Winch Mount for a 2005 Ford Excursion
  • There are front mount hitches available for your 2005 Ford Excursion but TorkLift hitch # TLF1006 will not fit. 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. For a winch mount that fits in a 2 inch receiver we have: # C31010 # 6495 # BDW20011 # SW2050 # C31009 # SW2055 # BDW20155 # CU881084

  • What is Weight Capacity of Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch Receiver Winch Mounting Plate # 6495
  • I checked with my contact at Draw-Tite and they said that the Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch Receiver Winch Mounting Plate, part # 6495, is designed for use with winches up to a 9,000-lb line pull rating. The reason for the 9,000-lb maximum is because he said most all of the front mount receiver hitches are only designed for winches with a maximum line pull rating of 9,000 lbs, so the front hitch on the vehicle will be the limiting weight capacity.

  • Is Fascia Trimming Required to Install a Front Mount Receiver on a 2005 Ford F-150 4x4
  • The Curt Front Mount Receiver, item # 31352, has a 9,000 Lbs. Max. Line Pull, and lower fascia trimming may be required on some models. The part that may need to be trimmed is the plastic fascia that is attached to the bottom of the chrome bumper on some models. If this plastic piece is not installed on your vehicle you will not have to trim with the Curt receiver. The Draw-Tite Front Receiver, item # 65043, for your 2005 F-150, has a 9,000 Lbs. Max. Line Pull rating also, so it is...

  • Is Angle Or clearance An Issue When Installing Winch On Front Of 2012 Nissan Frontier
  • The receiver opening for the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 65075 does sit below the front bumper. We haven't heard from any customers regarding the angle when they are using the hitch, but have had favorable reviews from customers. If you use a winch mounting plate like part # C31010, the winch will sit a little higher than the receiver opening and may not be an issue at all. we also have a winch mounting plate # 6495. The winches these are designed to work with are listed on...

  • Bulldog 8K Recovery Winch BDW10041 Compatibility w/ Front Trailer Hitch Receiver Mounting Plate
  • It sure will! The Bulldog 8K Recovery Winch item # BDW10041, will fit on the Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver Winch Mounting Plate, item # 6495. The winch has a 10 inch by 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern, which is compatible with the mount holes on the hitch plate. You may want to consider the Trailer and Vehicle Electric Winch Wiring Kit, for up to 16.5K Winches, item # SW2008, to have the correct wiring and quick disconnects to run to the rear of your vehicle.

  • Winch Recommendation to Pull a 2010 Ford F-250 Super Duty Out of Mud
  • I strongly recommend getting the highest capacity winch possible to pull your 2010 Ford F-250 Super Duty out of mud. I would not rely on a 1,500 or 3,000 lb winch to pull your truck out of mud. Keep in mind that when your truck is stuck and you want to use a winch to pull it out, you are pulling the weight of the truck plus the weight of the mud and any additional force against the truck that is created by the mud. All of the front mounted hitches that we carry for your truck have a...

This mount is all welded and ready to use right out of the box. The plate on the part # 6495 is 1/4 inch thick and has the same mounting hole pattern as the C31010.

  • Wiring and Mounting Superwinch S5500 Electric Winch to Front of Trailer
  • To wire an electric winch like the Superwinch S5500 referenced in your question to your trailer, I recommend using the Superwinch Trailer and Vehicle Electric Winch Wiring Kit # SW2008. This kit uses quick disconnects and will include the wire and connectors needed to install the winch on your aluminum trailer. I have also included an article on wiring an electric winch that you might find helpful. You will want to secure the winch to the frame of your trailer. This is typically...

  • Winch Mounting Recommendation for a 2016 Chevy Colorado
  • If you wanted to mount your winch in front of your 2016 Chevy Colorado we have a front hitch that would work well for that. The Draw Tite part # 65071 would be a great solution. And then for a winch mounting bracket for the hitch we have the part # 6495. Or if you wanted to mount the winch at the rear of the vehicle you could use a rear mounted trailer hitch with the # 6495. If you don't have a hitch the Draw Tite part # 76004 would be a great option as well.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2017 Ram 2500
  • The only front mount trailer hitch receiver we have for your 2017 Ram 2500 is the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 65063. Unfortunately, Draw-Tite only tests their front mounted trailer hitch receivers with stock bumpers and cannot confirm if it will work with the Thunderstruck bumper you currently have. With that being said, the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver has a line pull rating of 9,000 lbs therefore, as long you are not exceeding this capacity you...

The hitch will provide you with a 2" receiver tube opening on the front of the vehicle which can be used for a winch tray or to move a trailer around. If you also need a winch tray to use with this hitch then I recommend part # 6495. The plate measures to be 12-15/16" long x 7-3/4" wide.
