Might be a good time to thing about buying a bumper as well. A lot of winch plates are going to set you back another $100-$150 or so. If you got a bumper that has the winch plate built in you may be ahead of the game on the long run.
Look at the Rokmen Merc bumper. It is a true piece of artwork IMHO.
This is the unit with the fairlead mount and hoop. $399.00
It has the winch mount already there so nothing else to buy. You will also have good recovery points on the front.
