Recommended Winch for Front of 2004 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 with Draw-Tite Front Hitch


What capacity winch can I use with my 2004 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 using your front hitch ? 5000 , 9000 , 12000 winch ?


Expert Reply:

The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65041 is rated for up to 9,000 lbs line pull but you can honestly use whatever size winch you want to for your 2004 Toyota Tacoma. As long as you don't exceed the weight rating of the front mount hitch/winch you are good to go.

For your application the 9,500 lb Bulldog Winch Standard Series Off-Road Winch # BDW10042 is a great option because it is rated slightly higher than your front mount hitch (so you get the most out of that weight rating) and you can easily mount it to your Tacoma using the Hitch Mounted Winch Mounting Plate with Handles # BDW20011. If you plan on moving your winch around frequently then the Bulldog Winch Quick-Connect Set # BDW20133 is also a great addition.
