    Would this fit on a 94 wrangler YJ. I have the stinger front bumper and bought a winch and Harber freight winch plate is to big and doesn't fit in between the grill and back of the bumper. I see it says it fits TJs but just wondering if it will fit my YJ? Thanks 1 answer

      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!

      Great strong Winch plate

      Easy to install. Love the way it's got a little height on it. Just heavy strong steel.

      Smittybilt raised winch plate

      Straight forward and easy to mount. Might need longer bolts than the ones provided if you're mounting on an aftermarket bumper, but a very solid set up forsure.

      Bolts right up, no adjustments or modifications needed. Great powdercoating. Simple to install and came with all hardware you could possibly need. Best to install you roller lead then winch.

      Perfect Fit for Jeep TJ...

      Save some money and buy this Smittybilt. This winch plate is well made. Very beefy, quality paint (I think powdercoat), comes with spacers for the rear/third hole and hardware. My warn winch mounts up perfectly!

      Both the bumper and and plate bolted on with eaze. All the bolt holes lined up perfect with no adjustments needed. The winch mounted to the plate just as easy and again holes lined up perfectly. Yes I would recommend both !!!!
