The 2021 facelift of the Chevy Colorado ZR2 looks great but certainly presents a few challenges for anyone who has plans on adding a winch to their truck. The updated one-piece fascia on the 2021+ ZR2 can’t be modified enough for an integrated winch mount to fit behind it without compromising structural integrity, leaving customers with basically one option – replace the front bumper.

The AEV Front Receiver for the 2021+ Colorado ZR2 is a simple solution for customers who want to add a winch but do not want to replace the front bumper. With the AEV Front Receiver installed, ZR2 owners will have the ability to use any winch/cradle combo they wish for a convenient and flexible self-recovery setup.

The AEV Front Receiver attaches directly to the front frame rails and is designed to fit behind the front fascia, without having to perform any major modifications. Additionally, a Front Receiver gives you the flexibility to use your winch in either the front or rear of the vehicle, provided the truck is equipped with a trailer hitch and front/rear quick-connect wiring is installed in each position (available from Warn here).  

Installation requires only minor modification to the lower part of the front fascia to allow access to the 2” square receiver. Any brand winch/winch cradle will work with the AEV Front Receiver BUT it must be rated appropriately for the vehicle (we recommend a winch rated for at least 9,000 lbs.). A Colorado-specific In-Bed Winch Cradle Carrier is also available from AEV to securely store your winch and cradle when not in use.
