Rock Hard 4x4 is very proud to offer the easiest way to install a recovery winch onto your 10A/HardRock Jeep Wrangler JK 2/4DR.
NOTE: RH-5011 Vacuum Pump Relocation Bracket is required on all 3.6L 2012 and newer Wranglers.
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.
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 Zeon line plus PowerPlant*! No drilling required, all winch bolt patterns are already laser cut into our mounting plate.
*PowerPlant hardware kit required, sold here: RH-5018
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.
What comes in every kit:
- Winch plate
- Installation Instructions
Three Reasons Why:
- Installs in minutes
- Most heavy duty on market
- Powder Coat Included
Now that you have your RH-5017 Winch Plate installed, protect your grille plus add aftermarket lights! Our 100% bolt on hoop gives your grille the protection you need from tree branches and other trail debris. Our tabs are designed for either a 10" LED light bar or individual round or square lights. These hoops mount to existing holes already in your bumper.

DISCONTINUED BUMPER NOTICE: There is a very limited number of factory bumpers with a different fairlead cutout. Part #68184963AB. These are not compatible with the fairlead plates we include, but are compatible with our winch plate. If you have this bumper, made only in the first part of 2013, please call us.

What winches are compatible with our mounting plate?
Yes, Warn Zeon fits. 99% of the popular winch brands fit our mounting plate including Warn(TM), Quadratec(TM), Superwinch(TM), Smittybilt(TM), and many more. Warn PowerPlant requires separate hardware kit - RH-5018. 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. 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 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!
