I have installed super Atv rear bumper.  Along with a 4500 lbs winch.  Not entirely happy with its mounting to the bed and would like ideas on how to strengthen the mount to the actual frame of the machine

I have the same fear! How’s yours holding up?

If you haven't already, get the metal bed hinges. Otherwise, you'll rip the bed right off when using the winch (or someone slams into you) and the plastic ones fail.

I never thought about that! I don’t plan on using the winch for anything to heavy. Are you running a rear winch bumper? Curious about capacity. Mainly wanted to use it for a tie down on the trailer instead of having to pull straps for a quick trip.

No, I don't run a rear bumper winch, don't have a need really. Putting one on a bar across the front of the bed as a game winch for deer. I use Vulcan Tire Nets for tie down, fastest and easiest way to strap down.

I wouldn't rely on those plastic hinge brackets for anything at all, pulling/pushing wise.

I wouldn’t recommend using as a tie down for trailering your rig especially with the factory plastic hinges. Have a look at them and I think you’ll agree. Tire nets is the way to go all day long plus not putting load against suspension. Regular straps well maybe not the fastest or cleanest definitely a better option in my opinion.

Man you are right! I’ve already pulled the winch off. Lucky I had the bumper, the snorkel was in the way and it was dark and I popped a tree, not super hard but it broke a bed mount. So nothing will be attached to that bumper.

Ya I chose to mount my rear winch inside trailer hitch. Seems pretty strong the little i e used it. I think it looks wicked in the bumper but for pulling Polaris and Honda’s around I’ll stick with mounting to something that can’t break off. Plus this way I can also take it off to use on anything with a hitch and 12v Lol
