winch in enclosed trailer.

How is yours mounted?

I've got a old warn 9k that I took off my jeep before I sold it. It is currently bolted to a shittybuilt jeep winch tray.

I was thinking I could weld in a new cross member underneath the front of the trailer and just u-bolt that tray through the floor. Any retarded reason that wouldn't be good enough?

That should work. I would set it up where a hitch receiver is mounted to the floor/frame and the winch is on a plate that goes into it, that way it can be moved out of the way if needed.

Could even drop the receiver vertical so it takes up less room, like a gooseneck turn over ball.
