Has any one fabricated their own winch mounting plate for TJ. Any one have pictures or dimensions? I tried a search but couldn't find anything. If any one takes a trip to Oahu e-mail me at [email protected] and I'll show you of our islands wheeling spots.

Mahalo,
Ian

Check the Winch Mounting Plates at Harbor Freight. Good Prices. then have a buddy reinforce it a little if they dont end up being genuine Ramsey plates.

I used 3/8" plate for my mount, Warn recommends 1/4". Landed the entire front of my rig on a couple of times no problems. Easy to fab, just takes time and paitence.

Yea, just finished one. My goal was to raise it and set it back further from the front to accomidate my existing bumper. I didn't like the idea of my fairlead out past the bumper.

Built two "boxes" (not exactly cubes though); bolted them onto the frame to get my height. then mounted the winch to a plate which bolted to the "boxes".

Very simplified explanation. Let me know if you want more detail. Absoultely STRONG as sh*t!
