Default Winch mount

Looking at adding a winch to my cart since my wife doesnt understand what stay outta the low spots means. My carts at my farm not here with me. Just need to know what's behind the big black plastic shroud on the front of the cart I've honestly never took the time to just peek behind it and see what's there. I've ordered a little 2500 lbs winch and need to know if I buy or fabricate a "L" shaped bracket is there a place behind the plastic shroud to maybe drill and attach it to. Thanks guys for your help.

You might get more responses if you posted the make, model and year of the cart.

I'm going to mount my winch tomorrow. I finally got things ready. I'm mounting it on the front axle. I made a plate out of 1/4" steel and bolted the winch mount to it. I had to cut the shock cover to mount the winch far enough to the rear. I had to notch the plate to clear the steering rack. I used two exhausting holes in the axle and drilled two more. Using grade 8, 5/16" bolts.
I don't have a picture of the front with the cover cut off. I'll get one tomorrow.

I noticed Johnny B posted while I was typing. FYI, mine is a 2013 TXT48. The wide axle is great for a mount.

2014 ezgo rxv. Think I found a video of a bumper being put on one that shows it's just 2 dead ended tubes for the frame with 3/8 bolt holes in it. If mine looks like that I think I can weld or bolt on some channel iron to extend it out enough to get my mount on. Just cut a hole in the plastic bumper put the cable through. Doesnt have to be fancy my cart stays on my farm.

These might help.

The RXV has independent suspension in front and the frame tapers down to the two rails only being a few inches apart, so the swing axles can be centrally mounted. Looks like a bracket of some kind could be made and attached to the open frame ends where the tow bar mounts.

Looks like a couple pieces of 2x2 angle iron bolted to those existing holes will be the ticket I went and bought a mounting plate from harber freight for 3 bucks already has assorted holes for the winch. I think this will be a pretty easy project after all. Thanks for yalls help guys.
