Let the fun begin....

The only thing is I dont have a good measurement from the front of the metal part of the bumper you cut out to the plastic bumper where the front of the winch plate touches the back of the bumper. Looks about 5".

Also I think the Limited and Laredo will be slightly different in as far as how much the winch plate will stick out to the bumper. The Laredo's bumpers are indented between the bumperets and Limited's have no indents.

Mine design doesn't curve on the front like the original one. My winch is a 12.5k and the warn one is like 8k so mine is bigger. That wouldn't be a problem reproducing it with the sides 1/2-3/4 curved in.

So the original...







Ok I went out and took a few measurements and cut the center section.









Then the mock up. It fit perfect.









Wont get to work on it again until Thur.

Got some plate cut and tack welded. Adjusted the one I'm making so the front curves like the Went out and did a quick test fit and seems to be good. Would have done more to it but the wind and rain is blowing and expecting snow tomorrow.

If I get a break in the storm I'll go out and mark the mount holes, drill them out and make the backing plates.

Then I'll make the sides for the winch plate. Also this one is made to fit a Warn XD9000. I found the dimensions online, made a template for the test fit.

Mine will have to be bigger since its a 12.5k. But here are the picks so far.

I haven't been as diligent at watching the WJ side as I used to be, but this is what I think I saw... Somebody put up a link to a sweet recessed winch plate from a fabrication place's Facebook. Two days later, you're working on your own recessed winch plate. Is that about how things went down?

Regardless, I'm jealous of your fabrication.
