    Very nice setup! I'm thinking of the Smitty as well for the factory steel bumper. What bar is that you've got mounted?

    JCR Offroad (https://www.jcroffroad.com/product/JLHR-B-PC.html). I was buying their bumper skid and winch plate during Black Friday and added this since they had such a good sale going on. Perfect fit. Took less than a minute to install. I like it because it's not really tall and forward but not really small, either.

    @IronScott Do you still have the factory rope on that winch? If so, how did you remove the hook to install the Factor 55 flatlink?

    I went through ATP and the mount fit perfect! Good design and beefy. I have read flex issues with some of the cheaper plates. As for the winch I picked up the Smitty X20 10K with synthetic rope through @Northridge4x4 for a great deal!

    Yes, I do. I used a cutoff tool to slice a chunk out of the hook and was able to get the loop out. I goofed up, though, and cut a few strands of the rope on accident. I used a Factor 55 Fast Fid tool to repair the line. In hindsight, I could’ve just used the Fast Fid (or similar) to just cut the rope to remove if from the hook and re-splice it.

    Splicing the rope is really easy. I was intimidated at first but it’s super easy, and the Fast Fid tool makes it quick - and it’s good to have on the trails anyway. This video shows how it works.

    Hey TJ2018, how did you mount your front license plate? Do you recall where you ordered the bracket from? Thanks!
