I think I have the same mounting plate as you do, but I have a narrow track CJ. Anyway, I welded 1/4" angle iron on the outside of my frame rails and drilled holes through them to bolt the plate to. I winched several vehicles and skidded 2 cords of oak with it and it held. My welding skills leave allot to be desired, but they didn't crack.
