Belleview Winch Mount Question

I'm trying to mount an old Belleview 6000 lb. winch on my CJ and am trying to make it as easy and economical as possible (go figure) Has anyone out there done this with a Warn 8274 mount? Does anyone have any experience with this? I have the means to fabricate something from scratch as a last resort. Ideas? Plans? Thanks in advance. Tom

If I remember correctly that winch looks a whole lot like a Warn 8274. Haven't seen one in a long time, but I'll bet the mount for an 8274 could be made to work.

Re: Belleview Winch Mount Question

I believe the BellVille is a bit smaller. measure the mounting holes on your winch and than take a look at the 8274 on Warn.com and you can find their mounting specs. I am sure you can make it fit but you might need to drill some new holes..

Re: Belleview Winch Mount Question

Hey just wondering if you got my pics a couple of weeks ago. The bumper is being welded as we speak and hopefully should have it back next week. It took me and my dad 8 hours together to build it. I will still have to paint it. But other then that it is wiring time. Here are some scetchs my dad drew before we built it.

Re: Belleview Winch Mount Question

Yes I got those pics. Impressive engineering! While I like the idea of "sinking" the winch, I'm trying to avoid adding any length to my CJ5. With lockers at both ends (and no twin stick yet) I'm afraid that tight corners on the trail would be that much tougher. Email me a pic of the finished product , though, and let me know just how much longer than stock it is. Thanks.

Re: Belleview Winch Mount Question

I have to agree with not extending the front or rear overhang. That is the nice thing about a Jeep, the fantastic approach and departure angles. Even with not much of a front bumper and no back one I still sometimes scrape. Definitely not for rock crawling.

Re: Belleview Winch Mount Question

I would have to agree also but i dont have rocks near me at all and i am not into really steep climbs. What i normally do that bumper will, in no way, get in the way at all. Plus no one else will have such a creature.
