It's over engineered... It's going to make a nice weight for winter traction

i think you should mount it directly to the frame put a bunch of cab lights on your truck... find a bridge and winch your truck into the air with merry christmas painted in your bed.... well it would make a great ford commercial lol jk man but really im in the army and tanks dont even have winches that big where did u get that thing

It's only a ramsey industrial series, 8k lb line pull..i made the mount so I can use it on the truck or on my goose neck dump trailer.

its overbuilt and underbuilt.

the 5/8 base plate really doesnt serve any purpose except for weight. The welds from the baseplate to uprights are pretty dinky for that size material and the way you have the winch setup, you should have at least 1 gusset, i not two per side, otherwise your just going to bend it, even bend the whole thing over. You could have built that whole thing out of 1/4" with proper gussets and stiffners, and save at least 30lbs.

using 1/4" angle(2x2?) will not hold up to the winches' full potential.

Probably a buzz kill, but IMO you should have posted before painted because there are some major strength issues you overlooked.
