R/C winch plate & 8500lb Super winch on factory bumper.

Just installed a Rough Country winch plate & put an 8500lb Super winch on my 4dr. Rubi . Went in easily just had to mod the roller fair lead & had to take out about an 1/8" out of one hole . Sits the same maybe lost 1/2" . Need to wire it and give`er a whirl. This set up uses the factory bumper & I think probably saves a fair bit of wieght.

I really like this option, just not for 240 clams! Sure it would be nice to mount a winch to the stock bumper so I have it available, but I am just going to replace the bumper eventually anyway, and that means 240 bucks wasted! Would be interesting to see if someone could mod this mounting plate to work with other bumpers, I am horrible with custom fab work... too OCD everything has to be perfect and I am always too afraid I didnt make something strong enough.
