    Sorry about the multiple posts.....
    I’m most concerned about the front to back depth. On other Jeeps with the same mount and winch they are typically mounted on top of the bumper to the front edge...
    In those setups the winch looks very close to the grill. Did you extend the frame?
    Thanks again

    Searchers 4wd has a mount plate. I bought one for moving my 8274 lower for the thru bumper mount. I haven’t done it yet, but from the measurements it will be tight between the winch and the grill.

    I got the fancy! I figured it was alittle wider which would spread the force out alittle more on the bumper...plus it’s rare I can afford something fancy.

    Nice! I can hardly make one for that price. Any idea why the extra cutout on the fancy version?

    I have added a few close up pics. The top photo shows the winch bracket with supports. The second, third and fourth show the 1/4" plate steel welded in between the winch plate and the inside of the bumper. The last pic shows that the winch bracket is flush with the bottom of the bumper.

    Nice work. I’m about to do the same installation on my ‘59. Do you mind sending a picture of the clearance between the grill and winch.
