Yeah I'm probably gunna use the Harbor Freight 12k winch plate that I got of Craigslist for 15 bucks a while back. Would make the fab work easier. just trim the back sides flush and add the extensions back to for bolt attachment.
The only problem I see for those looking for this kind of mod is the winch lock/free spool lever needs to face down or forward because it will hit the bottom of the grill otherwise. You can see in the pics of the original in one pic the handle is up and in the other it is facing down.
So you need to make sure the winch you have will let you rotate the end of the winch down. Other wise you can fab the plate to fit on top of the uniframe rails.
