Do winch plates replace plastic "Jeep" frame cover?

As the title says.

I removed the plastic cover that covers the front of the frame where a winch would mount. I plan on making myself a bumper in the future but I feel as though the duct tape clips holding my brake line cover is a little exposed.

I would put it back on but it's all mangled and there's only 1 bolt hole that hasn't been torn up on the plastic cover.

Also how thick are most winch mounting plates? When I build my bumper it's going to have a winch mounting plate integrated so maybe I could incorporate the mounting plate into my bumper. I was planning on using 1/4" plate for the top part.

Most of the aftermarket ones are 3/16". I have seen some 1/4".

Yes they typically cover that area.

You can see in this write up that even the harbor freight version covers the frame area:

My AtoZ mount covers it. It lifts it up a bit too, which I like:
