Get a mounting plate, probably from the same manufacturer. They vary a bit, especially in the fairlead mount area. Make sure your battery can handle it.

I got an A to Z winch plate for $125 which is $50 cheaper than the warn, and I like that it isn't as big as the warn plate. BTW I'm running a warn m8000.

What winch are you going with?

you bolt the winch to the winch plate(4 bolts), then you bolt the winch plate on top of the bumper using the 4 bumper bolts on top

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.

http://www.rokmen.com/products/tj_lj...nt_bumper.html



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.
