Installing Winch - Need Help

Also, 3500 is not anywhere near what you need, sure, there are guys out there that have ones that are similar sized, but when you're stuck in mud/snow/dirt the rolling resistance of the car is much higher than it's weight. Be sure to double the line with a pulley and be sure that it can handle 7000 pounds weight if you do that.

I have a 3500 ATV winch I want to install on my 89 Wagon for fun....has anyone tried this? Can you weld it to the stock front bumper? Or bolt...any help appreciated!
remove the plastic off the bumper and weld up a mount that ties into the pinch welds

I have actually bent the mounts winching myself (and others) over the years.

9k is really too much winch for a subaru. For the amount it got used vs the weight it put on the nose of the car it wasn't worth it. A 3.5k with a snatch block should do you fine.
