Have a 2000 Dodge Ram 3500 Turbo Diesel. Need to mount a Trail FX W12B 12,000 lb winch on front. Need mounting plate options for same. Thanks.

The Winch Carrier for Bulldog Winch Grille Guard - 12,000 lbs # BDW733601 is not a fit for your 2000 Ram 3500. 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.

We have two models available; the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65003 or the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 31604 depending on your preference on manufacturer or design. Both are great options. Curt is made in the USA, so that would be my personal preference in this case.
