Most machine shops have some scrap metal.. thats not going to be your problem though. Fitment will be. just slapping a piece of metal on your jeep and calling it a winch plate isnt exactly as easy as you might think. I actually have a winch plate and a hacked up tube bumper and a complete rear tube bumper i have been meaning to sell if youre interested.
