I believe it works with the warn zeon series, I'm sure if you find one of similar size and bolt pattern it might work.

I've been searching everywhere, and the SDHQ mount is the only one I've seen. I'm loving it and have read a lot of great feedback. They only "guarantee" the fit for the Zeon series, but it's said others will fit. The rationale behind the Zeon "certification" appears to be it's wireless feature (only available in the Platinum edition). Anything with a manual clutch will likely require additional bumper modification for access to the clutch switch. I'm planning to get the Zeon 12-S Platinum. You can buy the whole package directly from SDHQ, including their own wiring kit for relocating the control box...and, they sell a flip-up license plate holder that accommodates the mounting location of the fairlead. Smart solution IMHO.

I got one of the first SDHQ mounts when they came out. I have it paired with Zeon 12S and it's the bomb. Highly recommend. SDHQ is great to deal with and the mount is high quality. The mount has the standard bolt patterns - so others will work, but as stated previously access to clutch is issue behind the bumper. Wireless is probably best for this mount, but you could use some other winches if needed.

Didn't know they made a LP holder. It never crossed my mind about that, here in Texas it's law to have your front LP's displayed. Good to know, thanks for that!

I live in the Houston area and drove an '89 Porsche 930 with no front license plate since '94 (just sold it last year). Been pulled over countless times for speeding and never got tagged for not having a front plate. I know it's required, but I never had a clean way of mounting a front plate to that car.

I've removed the front plate mount from the Tundra in anticipation of getting the winch/mount package we're discussing with fingers crossed, as I drive all over the Houston area on a daily basis. No trouble yet. I was thinking of getting this flip-up unit just in case. It's called the Flipster, and I believe it's actually made by Cascadia? Warrior also makes one, but SDHQ resells the Flipster, so I thought it would be easier to get everything from a single source. The Flipster is supposed to support either a Hawse or roller fairlead.

SDHQ's prices on these third-party products really aren't bad, but Warn is definitely proud of that Zeon Platinum. Big jump in price for the wireless version, but it's practically necessary to have remote control of the clutch in this case. No other way to reach the switch without cutting more out of the bumper, which largely defeats the clean result of the hidden mount in the first place.

The SDHQ mount is good. Lots of plate options. The ONLY down side to the warn winch is the price. I'm kinda glad to have a Lamborghini of winches.
