Sprinter Hidden Style Winch Mount

$ 1,500.00

Updated for 2023+ fitment, the ever popular winch mount has some new tricks and features that have been added. With the introduction of the 2023+ AWD Sprinter chassis and a new 4cyl powertrain layout, we had to develop a new winch mount. Critical fitment space has been taken away by larger cooling systems, which meant we had to push the winch body farther forward. We've embraced this change and developed a new mount that keeps a 12,000lb winch still tucked behind the factory plastic bumper, but still adds reinforcement, utility and safe recovery points to the front of your van. This mount is also backwards compatible to 2019 model year vans, for customers looking for a less-stealthy version of our winch mount.

As the winch moved forward the familiar shape of our mount has had to change, allowing us to incorporate some new features like a bolt on bull bar for light mounting and added protection. A 2" receiver tube is now welded to the mount for the convenience of carrying a light-duty cargo rack, storing a rack while camping to access the rear, and ease of maneuvering a trailer. Full functionality of the MB safety systems is retained.

Our winch bumper retains the side impact protection the factory bumper provides. It attaches to the (8) 8mm bolts on front of the chassis and (2) 12mm on the bottom. The bottom 12mm bolts are past the crumple zone of the chassis. This helps to strengthen the mounting of this winch mount to ensure the chassis will hold up to heavy pulls and the mount will not flex.

The winch mount includes 3/4" thick steel tow points. The winch mount parts go through a dual stage powder coating process with a zinc rich primer applied and baked on before the final matte black finish.

Hitch Receiver Static Load Capacity: 300 lbs

2015 to 2018 Sprinter hidden style winch mounts are also available and come with a standard 2" receiver hook up. This system completely replaces the factory bumper under the plastic cover. The 2" receiver has a 300 lb tongue weight and adds additional function to your van. The optional hitch is great for bicycle racks or use it as a secondary recovery point. Constructed from 3/16" steel plate and 1/4" square tube. Powder coated black for corrosion resistance. 

*** This front winch mount is designed around the Warn Zeon series of winches. Many other winches are compatible with this kit, but please reference the Warn Zeon 12-S winch for the maximum winch size. Winch is not included.
