        Perfect fit...

        If you are looking for a winch plate for your Wrangler TJ, this is a good one. It's raised so there is no need to worry if the winch connection bolts will lie flush on your aftermarket bumper - there is plenty of clearance. And it's a perfect fit requiring no drilling. The kit includes all the hardware you need to complete your winching project.

        Smittybilt winch plate

        The smittybilt winch plate bolted right up to my frame and the winch bolted right up also. The plate is a great add on if you don’t have a winch bumper.

        another well built smittybuilt product

        well built product. easy to install. went ahead and purchased longer grade 8 bolts so I could use factory tow hooks. I paired it with a smittybuilt 9500 with synthetic rope and both perform flawlessly. I could care less about the finish because it is a winch plate. its built for function not for a fashion show.

        Great product

        When it arrived I was excited to see that it was made with good quality and thick steel construction. Everything looked great and it came with a instruction book that was detailed and easy to understand. I followed the directions and it fit perfectly, with the longer bolts and washers it came with. My winch mounted on the plate with ease and it really brings my whole rig together! Would recommend for anyone looking for a great high quality piece!

        Performs as advertised.

        Very well built winch plate, surprisingly heavy. The only down side (which is well documented) is that it's a smooth gloss finish rather than the normal smittybilt textured powder coat. Came with all the hardware needed, and worked well with my src stinger bumper on my tj

        Personally : The Installation Instructions could have been a bit better. I didn't find the Rectangular spacers ( for my install) until I did my trial installation . Once I had figured the optional pieces that applied to the install , it is a very good and economical investment .

        Great add on

        I had to get the smittybilt winch because I have the smitty stinger bumper on my jeep. It took all of 15 minutes to install. Directions weren't the greatest but it's all pretty intuitive. Now just have to get a winch!

      This product is listed as 3/8 inch steel, but Smittybilt's website lists it as 1/4 inch steel. Which is it? Thanks.

      • I apologize for the confusion! This Smittybilt Winch Plate is made from 1/4" steel.
