you may wanna extend the mount pads and doubler plates back much further into the unibody,like past the sway bar mounts u can then use the sway mounts to sandwich the doubler.the way its mounted u will bend the unibody tips then rip your doubler plates out.with the winch mounted on the drop down it applies leverage big time to that joint and will bend the jeep side of things even with a super lite pull,it may even pull the stock bumper brace off.if its just for looks dont sweat it
