There is no lighter solution to add a winch and bull bar. The install was easy, customizable to fit my needs and very light. when every pound matters go with this setup.

By far the best fitting winch mount I have ever installed, excellent instructions with pictures. Would definitely recommend to anyone with a ZR2 who wants a winch but doesn’t want to go with a full bumper.
Overall, the winch mount is a great product, with a pretty straightforward installation. It is well-built and fit great. The instructions are pretty clear. With two people, it is a several hour process. You will disassemble the entire front end of your truck ahead of the radiator. The few things to be aware of are that you will be removing and discarding quite a few (large) plastic trim pieces from behind the grill and discarding the stock steel sub-bumper, and will have a large pile of bolts and fasteners left over. Once finished, it is not super easy to reach in through the stock bumper opening to operate the winch lever, and even harder to plug in the winch plug, but it can be done. I ordered the optional license plate mount, but it didn't have any instructions; I cannot figure out how or where to mount it; it doesn't make sense to me. Overall, I would highly recommend this mount if you want a discreet winch mount, and don't want to add all of the extra weight associated with a custom steel bumper; the nose of the ZR2 sites plenty low enough already!
Beautiful product, easy installation, and professionally packaged and delivered. Highly recommended if you're looking for a low weight option to mount a winch.
I bought this item to keep the OEM look of the ZR2 while being able to add a winch - mission accomplished! If there were any complaints - a lot of the grill support structure is lost after installation, the template for the vinyl bumper cutout for the fairlead isn't clear where to position. This isn't a MOI critique, but my truck had a front license plate holder installed by the dealership, and when I took it off there were a few holes drilled that aren't hidden once you do this installation (if you look closely at the MOI images you can see two license plate holder holes). I made an aluminum plate to hide those holes and add durability to that portion of the bumper. Overall, great product. Bought the light bar later, should have bought it right away!
