Video Transcript for Bulldog Winch Electric Winch BDW20291 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Replacement Mounting Plate for the Bulldog Winch Trailer Winches. Now, this replacement mounting plate is designed specifically for part numbers BDW10039 and 10040 trailer winches. If you have one of those models, then this plate is going to fit your winch perfectly. It's made for those models. The plate is made from a very durable steel construction. It's going to feature a black powder coated finish so it's going to do a great job at resisting rust and corrosion.

Now, just the mounting plate is included so hardware is not. You will have to provide your own hardware, use your old hardware, or get some new hardware to get the winch mounted to this plate. You'll notice here that it has the large area for the wiring to come out, or whatever type of rope or wiring that your winch uses. It's got the attachment points for your fairlead, and it's got a multi-hole design for mounting the winch to the actual plate. Now, four main holes are going to be what holds the winch to the plate. That's this hole, this hole, this hole, and this hole.

You can tell that because those holes are beveled on the bottom that way the hardware sits flush on the underside. Those holes, so measuring from this one to this one center on center, those are going to be separated by 10". Then center on center front to back, they are separated by 4-1/2". Now, when it comes to the overall measurements of this plate, very front to very back measures about 7-3/8 of an inch. Then going side to side so edge to edge going this direction, that's going to give us a measurement of right around 20". That's going to do it for today's look at the Replacement Mounting Plate for Bulldog Winch Trailer Winches..

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (18 Customer Reviews)


great service, technical support and de livery


Worked perfect to mount my winch to car trailer. fast shipping!


Solid construction, works flawlessly


Got this universal plate for my 9000 Badlands winch. All the holes line up and it’s not overly large. Perfect for what I need


I bought this Bulldog winch mounting plate for my Badland 9000 lb winch because I was able to confirm through the very helpful people at that the mounting bolt pattern was identical to the pattern on my winch. One huge benefit of this plate are the countersunk holes for the winch on the underside of the plate which allowed me to mount flush to my trailer's wood deck without having to alter my trailer to accommodate hex head bolts typically used with other plates. Additionally, this plate works perfectly with the fairlead that came with my winch.


Winch trailer mount is just what I needed, was going to make it myself but after seeing this I adapted it for my needs! Mounted an M8000 (overkill) to it installed 5/16 chain hooks to it then wrap a chain around solid tree to winch and guide decaying dangerous leaning ash trees over my house, not enough room for truck to winch from. Thanks to Brenden it arrived very quickly! I will be a customer whenever I need another item you have! Thanks for outstanding service,


Fit perfectly to the winch, works great on the trailer.


Products delivered ahead of date and when opened were as described ,not disappointed will be ordering again when needed .


The mounting plate was received promptly and is of very high quality. It is as advertised and will work wonderfully for my use.


Products were delivered quickly and are already installed.


Product was received as described. Outstanding customer service!


Works as expected with my winch.


Super company to deal with.

  • Recommended Mounting Plate for a Vehicle Winch on 2016 ATC Open Trailer
    Easiest way will be to use the winch plate mount part # BDW20291 that you mentioned but attach it to the floor of the trailer at the very front to a crossmember of the frame. To mount in the V area of the A-frame is possible but it would require quite a bit of modification ot the trailer.

  • Universal Bulldog Winch Mounting Plate For 2000 Ford F-150
    I do have an option for you but the Bulldog Winch Universal Mounting Plate for Truck and Trailer Winches part # BDW20291 is designed more for open flat deck trailers, it may work for you but will probably require some drilling. The Bulldog Winch Universal Winch Mounting Plate for Truck part # BDW20008 is a better option which has a standard winch mounting bolt pattern of 10" long x 4-1/2" center to center hole spacing. I recommend to compare the hole spacing on the plate to what your hitch...

  • Winch Mounting Plate Needed for Aluma 82 Series Car Hauler Trailer
    While we do have a variety of winch mounting options, I can't say for certain that any of them are a specific replacement for your Aluma Series 82 car trailer. With that being said, we do have a universal winch mounting plate as part # BDW20291 which you'll want to pair with the mounting hardware # BDW20297 to complete the setup. If this works then great! If not, then I recommend reaching out to Aluma about that part directly.

  • Will Bulldog Winch Universal Mounting Plate Attach to Bulldog Stubby Bumper Without Drilling
    I spoke with my contact at Bulldog regarding the Bulldog Stubby Front Bumper # BDW21000 on your 1997 Jeep TJ. He stated that the Bulldog Winch Universal Mounting Plate # BDW20291 referenced in your question will also require some drilling for it to be mounted on this bumper. He stated that the Bulldog Winch Mounting Plate Kit # BDW20009 will be the better option for a no-drill application. It will need to be trimmed a bit to fit around the light bar, but you should not need to drill any...

  • Winch Mounting Plate Recommendation for Bulldog Winch # BDW10041 On Floor of Utility Trailer
    A better solution for a mounting plate for the Bulldog Winch part # BDW10041 that you mentioned would be the universal mounting bracket part # BDW20291 which is larger than the mount you mentioned. Then for hardware we have the part # BDW20297 which fits the countersunk holes of the mount.

  • Universal Winch Mount for Use on Tractor
    We have Universal Winch Mounting Plates like # BDW20291 that you referenced and also # BDW20019, as well as hitch mount types like # BDW20155. Universal mount # BDW20291 can use hardware kit # BDW20297. Since the front ends of Massey Ferguson tractors vary quite a bit you'll need to decide which mount is best for your install.

  • Mounting Plate Options for the Bulldog Winch Standard Series Off-Road Winch # BDW10043
    You can either use the Universal Mounting Plate # BDW20291 (which requires the hardware kit # BDW20297) or the Hitch Mounting Plate # BDW20011 for your Bulldog Winch Standard Series Off-Road Winch # BDW10043. Both have compatible mounting hole dimensions (10" x 4-1/2") so it just depends on where and how you plan on using the winch.

This comes with 2 Anderson-style connectors and 7-1/2' of wiring to reach from your battery to the front of your truck.

  • Bulldog Winch and Mounting Bracket For a 2019 Toyota 4Runner

First you can have a custom mounting plate created using the Universal Mounting Plate # BDW20291. This will need to be completed at a fabrication facility near you. Or you can use the Bulldog Winch Receiver Mount Kit # BDW20155 with a front mount receiver....
