I'm not sure the crossmember is up to it.
I mounted mine with inverted L shaped plates. The winch sites on the top of the plates, which wrap around the side of the frame and are bolted there.

I was just going to say fab one up or plop down about 100 bones for the Warn mount. I bought one but now that I have a welder I know that I could fab one up for less dough.
