Need some fab advice

Recently bought a new-to-me 8274 to use on my CJ7. Didn't want to pay the $170+ for a mounting bracket from Warn, so I scoured craigslist and found an old Warn bracket for an 8274 for $75. The only problem is the guy only has universal mounts for the mounting plate.

Is there any way to turn these into suitable mounting brackets?

Mounting brackets that don't fit:


The winch mounting plate:


Appreciate any help you guys can offer.

You might be able to redrill those side plates to catch the 2 big holes in the side of the CJ's frame. Once those are in place, you can mark/drill the main winch plate to bolt it down to those side plates.

Thanks, BESRK. I ended up ordering some proper CJ rail brackets from Warn. I probably could have cobbled something together as you instructed, but don't know that I would have trusted the end product.

Want a pair of frame rail brackets?
