Badlands 5000 lb. mounting on 2014 Teryx

Can anyone tell me if the HF Badlands 5000 lb. winch will bolt directly to the 2014 Teryx LE? If not what kind of winch mounting plate did you use or recommend?

I had to drill 4 new holes on my 2016 and put a 1/2" dent on the inside of the front bumper tub for the wire attachment to fit. Once you do that it looks and works great.

There are lots of good threads in this forum on this very topic...look through the ones started by GrandkidsMX and Cody454. Those are the threads that I used to decide how I wanted to mount my Badlands. I went with the "enlarge the existing holes" method that GrandkidsMX used, but many are using the KFI mount if you want to spend the extra $50.

I searched the topic here and a few other places before posting but I wasn't sure if the other year models had the same layout as the 2014. If they are the same I should be good with the info. that's available.

The KFI mount says it works for all years of Teryx/Teryx4 from 2012 to current. I'm betting the holes in the winch mounting plate are the same, but I could be wrong as my 2017 T4 is my only point of reference. At the end of the day, it's not a big deal to drill a couple holes in the factory winch mounting plate if that's what it comes to. Good luck with your install!

My harbor freight had roof collapse in snowmagedon. I bought the travellar 4500 from tractor supply again. KFI mount. All perfect. I think both of these winches are similar. No bending bumpers but very tight. I suspect badlands will bolt up same with mount from kfi. My 2015 teryx I drilled holes. Worked yes. Mount is worth the 50$ to me. Cross refer the part # of the Badlands ya want with kfi online chart to check bolt patterns like I did. It should be good.

Stormking, Why do you say the mount was worth the $50 to you? Was it because it made the install easier or was it some other reason.

Well drilling the holes sucks. Also you wind up with one hole very close to another factory hole. Second is it centers the winch better in space. Third it helps clearance and rotate an inch higher. I will add I also had to clock the TSC winch for safer clearance with red power attachment bolt. Yes much easier, it is a pia to line up and mark/measure to drill holes. Also easier to install/tighten bolts. Easy job vs PIA broken drill bits oblong off center holes! Either way work great when done though. If ya got the $50 it is well spent, if not get r dun!! lol.

I found the process easy. I used the fairlead mounting plate for a stencil to drill the holes from the bottom. Oblonging the holes was painless with a carbide cutter in my Dremel. Of course I notices that the holes were already oblonged on the passenger side of the factory/stock plate. So, not as much material was removed on that side and a little more was removed on the opposite side so as to keep the holes symmetrical.
