Greetings all! I'm currently in the process of coming up with my own multi-mount system for my Rincon. I've printed out the pics from Montana Jacks and think that I can replicate something very close to it. Couple questions I have:

1) For those of you with the Warn or Jack unit, what is the receiver size on the respective mounts? According the the Warn stuff I found it is a 1-1/4" class one type. Is the Jack unit the same size?

2) Then the pin that holds stuff in the receivers. The Warn looks like it uses a standard 5/8" receiver pin. Correct? Then I think I saw somewhere that the Jack unit uses a 5/16" wire lock pin. Am I correct there too?

3) I think I may purchase the Warn mounting plate just because it comes with all the wiring and hook-up stuff for a winch. Now will this wiring on the Warn kit work with a Ramsey winch too or just the Warn? Warn or Ramsey I haven't decided yet, though I do like the less amperage draw on the Ramsey units.

I've got access to all the fasteners, tubing, plate steel, brake press, and lazer cutting that I could possible need. I guess I just think some of the prices on this stuff is a little out of line if I can come up with something on my own, with y'alls help of course.

Hope I didn't ask too many questions! Thanks to anyone that could spare their knowledge with me. Have a good one!

I know what you mean about price, especially the Jacks stuff. They are way overpriced. I don't have the equipment to fabricate mine so I am thinking about going with the warn multimount. I have only had warn winches and see no reason to get any other.

Isn't there anyone that can at least tell me what size the pins are for the receivers? I'm pretty sure somebody's got a multi-mount around here! Would definately appreciate any help I can get. Thanks again.

Sorry, but going to try bumping this up. Maybe someone has answers that hasn't checked in for a while. :)

Mertz-Go over to the Highlifter site where they ride a lot of mud. I bet you get an answer real quick.

I have a custom 2'' front and rear receiver hitch mount on my 2004 Rincon. I have no winch yet but intend to add later.I have a 2'' ball hitch and a tow hook that can be moved from front to rear.look at the photos in members section.I made the front receiver out of 3x3 angle iron, U-bolted to the front frame uprights.Then I attached a 12 inch piece of 2 inch receiver tube to the 3x3 angle iron .The front of the tube is held up using a ¼ inch thick piece of 1 inch bar stock U-bolted to the braces coming from the front of the frame to the top of the bash plate.

Okie

The Jack's system uses 1 1/4" receiver with a 5/16th" pin. It is expensive but very well made and comes with all the wiring for the Warn hookup front and rear. The mounting is very solid and fit very well.

I made a few mods to the Jack's system. Added ring on rear hitch at bottom. additional receiver tube at rear to store the winch higher away from mud & water. Jack's is a very strong system. Hard to improve upon.

Thanks a lot for the input guys! I really appreciate it. I'm sure that the Jack's system is no doubt strong and well made. Where I work I can just lazer cut, saw, drill, & fabricate pretty much whatever I need to duplicate this. Most of it from scrap material too, except for the fasteners.

Only thing I think I'll have to buy is just the Wiring. GoWarn.com I think has the wiring kit available, otherwise I'll buy the multi-mount plate as it comes with the wiring. Then I guess I could mount what ever winch I decide to get.

Got something drawn up all ready, just need to do some prototyping. Maybe get to it first part of August after vacation. Let everyone know how I come out with it, unless the wife spends all the winch money on the trip! ;-) Later.
