Default Quad winch mount fabrication.

My 8 year old son has been riding quads for the better part of 4 years now. He had been bugging me for a winch all summer, so I finally broke down and got him one for his birthday.
He has a minature 110cc Quad, so the frame is not full size, and does not allow for the standard winch plate. We spent most of the night tonight modifying the frame to allow for the 2000 lb superwinch.

Here's some before and after pictures:

I built/modified some cargo racks tonight, and started mounting them on the quad. I may have to lower the rear. (I was trying to save room for a new 200 amp battery below the cargo rack)

Sorry about the bad pictures, ........my flash was messing up.
