This exceeded my expectations. The only other winch plate I've owned was a Warn and it was more than twice the price. This one is a much better quality finish. It matches my factory TJ Rubicon bumper perfectly. The Warn had paint chips when it was new and needed repainted yearly. This seems to match durability of the OEM bumpers so far but I've only had it installed a few days.
The only con was that I needed to get different fairlead bolts since there wasn't much room for excess screw length with my Engo E9000-S winch bolted in.
No issues on install, the Smittybuilt winch fit right in on the Smittybuild bumper that i have on my Jeep Wrangler TJ... Shipping was quick and easy. the plate is 1/4 thick and not only looks good but i know can handle any load, ... Arch
Delivered on time and intact. Easy to follow instructions. True bolt on for my 2005 tj. Make sure everything is connected on your winch (wires) before bolting down onto plate and bumper. Make sure you grab a T55 torx bit at your auto parts store before you start!
