I have no stock swaybar (replaced by a Curre Anti-Rock). So no need to clear stock swaybar.

I want a winch plate that fits flat to frame and mounts winch as far back towards grill as possible.

I just ordered a Superwinch EP9 and will use rope on it.

I need a winchplate for it.

Recommendations?

You mean the sway bar? I think just about all of them out there mount to the same set of holes on the frame rails. They all sit similar too... I think its because the cross bar in the front would get in the way of the mounting bolts if it was moved any forward or backward...

A couple sit further back, for instance Smittybilt has a normal flat plate, and a raised version which allows it to sit back a bit more over the swaybar.

Yeah ditto that. All of the flat ones I've seen sit forward due to the sway, but since you want flat an where the sway normally is you can just drill a big piece of plate steel.
