2020 wrangler rubicon recon
long story short, the recon has a loop over the top of the steel bumper. has anyone installed a winch on one? any clearance issues? one plate worked great? one didn't?

about to pull trigger on the smittybilt x20 comp 10000 pound.

thanks, all!

Is it the steel bumper? I'm not familiar with the "recon". I have a Rubicon and have the loop and installed a Warn winch. I used the Warn plate and had no problems installing it.

Do these pics answer your question?

My understanding is you just need the winch plate with the Mopar steel bumper and you're good to go.

Not a recon, but I have the same mopar bar on mine, with a Warn winch plate and VR EVO 10-S winch. Plenty of clearance. I would stick with the warn winch plate.
