        Just installed the RR Spartan Full Bumper without a winch. Will this fit on the bumper without drilling?

        • The Rugged Ridge License Plate Mounting Bracket for Hawse Fairlead is made to mount on the Hawse Fairlead of a winch. Without a winch this will not be compatible.

        Well, Im confused. I read that this will not work on the Warn Fairlead from other customer reviews on another seller's web site. Do you know?

        • This mounting bracket fits a wide variety of Hawse Fairlead models, however, we have not yet test fit with the Warn Hawse Fairlead to confirm fitment at this point in time.

            This was perfect fit was perfect, it was hard to start but it is very cold already so the clips would not move. Just put under hot water for a little bit and it slipped right in. Would buy again.

            Second Purchase

            This is my second purchase. It is very easy to install and remove if you have to use your winch. Just remember to install it back on after using the winch or put it inside your Jeep. Otherwise you will be buying another along with another License Plate. :)

            Nice idea, terrible materials!

            Despite seeing reviews warning of breakage, I took a chance. I was very careful installing. First install, broke 1 clip. First winch use, broke 2nd clip re-installing plate. 3rd clip broke somewhere on the highway. Now paying to replace my plate in addition to replacing this product. These clips should be METAL!!

            Did not Fit

            The bracket did not fit into the Warn hawse lead. Popped out by itself every time I tried to put it in. I had to return it.

            License Plate Mounting Bracket

            Very nice mount but, not what I order. Wanted one that on behind hawse fairlead. They sent one that clips into the fairlead. Nice bracket for those who want one like this. Sucks when they send the wrong item.

            Works great

            Easy to use. Snaps in and out easily, but strong enough not to lose plate. Works perfectly.

            I live in IL so needed a solution for a front license plate with my new barricade bumper and winch. Works great. Was hesitant to buy with reviews saying the clips snapped but I haven’t had any issues and have removed and replaced plenty of times now. I just make sure I apply equal pressure throughout while removing and replacing. I do think it’s pricey for what it is but works great for my need. Now I don’t have to have the plate in my front window!!

            The main issue I had were the plastic tabs that hold it into the fairlead. If you're not careful they will snap off. I ended replacing with a Tuffy flip up license plate holder which worked great and was cheaper.

            Installed perfect, snapped into hawse fairlead as it should and stays in place, does not move. Very easy to remove when winch access is needed though. Great product!

            Good idea, but didn’t work for me

            In CO, we must have a front license plate so I thought that this product would be the ticket. Had a tough time getting the bracket to fit and a tab finally broke off. Bracket was to be installed on a Smittybilt gen x2o winch.

            Cheap plastic clips

            Look elsewhere -- hugely disappointed in this product. For the money, should be made of better material. Two out of the three plastic clips snapped when I pushed this into the fairlead.

            Was surprised at how secure this mount is. Once it locks in it stays in place! Great mount.
