        5 Top Rated Questions

        Will this fit a 2017 Rubicon Recon? The factory steel bumper is supposed to be winch capable, but the answer to the last question seems to indicate otherwise.

        • The Rugged Ridge Front Bumper Winch Plate is designed for the Mopar/Jeep off road bumper such as what is equipped on your Rubicon recon. This will not fit with the Standard JK bumpers and only the special edition winch ready bumpers such as yours.

        Will this work for my 2018 JK Freedom Edition winch capable bumper?

        • Yes, the Rugged Ridge Front Bumper Winch Plate is designed for the Mopar/Jeep off road bumper. This will not fit with the Standard JK bumpers and only the special edition winch ready bumpers such as yours. As long as you have the Mopar/Jeep off road ready bumper, this winch plate will be compatible.

        Does this winch plate require relocation of the vacuum pump on a '18 JKU Rubicon Recon?

        • The vacuum pump will be moved, however there is a dedicated position on the plate for re-installation.

        Do you have a hawse fairlead to fit this winch plate. I have the 2018 JK Freedom Edition with the winch ready bumper. Thanks

        • The Rugged Ridge Front Bumper Winch Plate does not feature a fairlead mounting point. You'd need to use the mounting points on your bumper.

            Customer service was fast ,less than 24 hours and answered all my questions. Plate came with a couple scratches but was a perfect fit for my redrock winch and 2014 RubiconX

            Works well

            The winch plate is good quality, works well and looks good. I gave it 4 stars for the instructions. the illustration for the vacuum pump relocation is backwards and will not fit the way the picture shows. You have to flip the pump around and then the bolts that came with the kit for the pump install were to short. I just reused the factory screws. Other than that install was easy and looks good now

            Jeep Wrangler Winch Plate

            Overall the product is a five star but the directions being somewhat vague bring it down. Box was delivered with more tape then Red/Green uses on his show. Luckily the protective wrap kept the plates from getting marred or deep scratches. Now to the install. I took my time and had to undo a couple steps even when using the user provided instructions as when printed (color) the pictures were hard to make out some fine details. I center mounted my winch (X20 10K) and did not have to cut the vacuum pump braket. The only thing cutting it out would have done was made putting the bumper nuts back on easier. Overall, over 4 hrs of work which included about 10-15 minutes of looking for the best route to run the battery cables. The fit is tight with the vacuum pump relocated and sitting very close to the disconnect on passenger side. Only piece is you will need the MOPAR fairlead plate regardless of center or offset mounting.

            Perfect Fit

            Seems to work just fine although I have not had to use the winch yet. Just wish the Jeep Dealer would have told me that I needed this and a plate from the factory for the front of the factory bumper to make a winch work.

            Sturdy product-simple install

            This plate is a good product. I purchased it for my Rubicon Hard Rock XA bumper. Installing the bolts was difficult due to the bumper, not the plate. However when I installed the fairlead adapter plate from Mopar the lower right hole was blocked by the winch plate. This forced me to drill through the plate, no big deal, but an inconvenience. Super simple install as far as the plate is concerned. A little labor intensive because the bumper must be removed but directions were easy.

            Solid Winch Mount

            The 2 piece design has more mounting points than most other similar winch plates. Plus the back plate gives a cleaner look than the bare frame rails. The built in vacuum pump relocation mount is a great feature. Great design!
