Rock Hard 4x4 is very proud to offer the easiest way to install a recovery winch onto your Jeep Wrangler JK 2/4DR 2007 - 2018.
Winch's are like an insurance policy - you need to have one and hope you never have to use it! Our factory bumper winch plates use the strength of your Jeep's frame to provide the most affordable way to give you the peace of mind of self-recovery. Single plate steel construction and compatibility with virtually all winch models make this the ultimate way to get your factory front bumper winch ready.
Unique to our winch plate is the "keyed' laser cut tabs that tie in to your existing factory tow hooks. These tow hooks are tied directly into your frame and provide the safest, most durable, and best way to add a recovery winch plate. Another feature is the integrated winch fairlead mount that accepts both roller and hawse fairleads.
Our winch plate is compatible with everything from the common 8,000 lb. winch offered by most manufacturers all the way up to the massive Warn PowerPlant! No drilling required, all winch bolt patterns are already laser cut into our mounting plate.
Ease of Installation
Volumes of R&D went into this simple yet heavy duty addition to your factory front bumper. There is ZERO drilling, cutting, or welding required to install our Winch Plate. You DO NOT have to relocate your vacuum pump. In fact you don't even have to fully remove your front bumper to install!
What comes in every kit:
- Winch plate
- Installation Instructions
Three Reasons Why:
- Installs in minutes
- Most heavy duty on market
- Integrated fairlead mount
Now that you have your RH-5010 Winch Plate installed, protect your grille plus add aftermarket lights! We have three different hoop styles that give your grille the protection you need from tree branches and other trail debris. Plus, depending on part number ordered, add lights with the welded on light tabs! Our tabs are designed for either a 10" LED light bar or individual round or square lights. These hoops mount to laser cut holes built into all RH-5010 Winch plates.
What winches fit this bumper?
All popular winches, including the best selling WARN VR and Zeon series - right up to the value packed PowerPlant, fit our bumpers. In fact, if you don't have a winch selected yet, Rock Hard 4x4 is an authorized WARN winch distributor. We can add any WARN winch you like to your pallet and you wouldn't pay any additional shipping. This ensures your entire upgrade arrives at the same time which speeds up install and gets you on the trail sooner! If you'd like to take a look at some of our favorite WARN winches we have in stock, please visit www.rockhard4x4.com/warn.
What winches are compatible with our mounting plate?
99% of the popular winch brands fit our mounting plate including Warn(TM), Quadratec(TM), Superwinch(TM), Smittybilt(TM), and many more. The only known winch that does not fit is the Warn(TM) 8674 due to its inherent mounting points. Please check with your winch manufacturer if you still are not sure about compatibility.
Do I lose my factory tow hooks?
No, in fact they are required for installation. If you do not have them please contact your local dealer for purchase.
What finishes are available?
RH4x4 winch mounting plates ship powder coated black with a semi-smooth, semi-gloss finish. Raw, paintable finish available upon request.
Our JK winch mounting plates are made from 100% 1/4" steel for a lifetime of use and abuse.
Do I have to cut or trim my frame?
No cutting required.
Where is this mount made?
This product, like all RH4x4 parts, was designed, developed, tested, manufactured, and if applicable, powder coated, and shipped in the USA. And we don't mean the 75% legal standard to be able to say Made in USA. We are 100% Made in the United States of America!
