I know a lot of people going to recommend VR EVO, just be careful EVO series has a built-in wireless function that will continuously leech your battery, so consider investing a power interrupting kit or quick disconnect.

The Mopar winch plate costs a little more but if you can get a discount on it, I prefer it. I was able to get it for less than MSRP but still more than the Warn. However, I wanted a plate that mounts behind the frame/bumper mount instead of in front. Install was perfect. I like how tight it holds everything to the grill. I'd recommend if you want to spend a little more.
I can usually get 20%-30% off the Mopar stuff from a guy I know that works at the local dealer so I am going to look at this.
What winch did you install on yours?

I did the Warn Zeon 10S. I debated on this because honestly.... I probably won't use my winch as much as others. More of a "just in case" thing. That said, I paid a little extra because the Zeon looks so cool. that thing is beefy. Instead of the plastic cover on the controller, its metal and built in and the wires are all internal. I think it was worth it now that its in.

Thank you so much. That is very close to the grill but I guess you have just enough breathing room to be fine. Again THANK YOU for sharing!

Yeah! Its super close. But the only part that touches at all is the power cable. The Mopar kit actually comes with a clear peace of vinyl to wrap the bottom of the grill. I debated installing it but eventually did. You have to pull the grill which is actually super easy and made the install easier. I wanted it as close as possible so I love how it turned out.

Installed mine today, Factory Steel Bumper, Rusty's Off Road Products winch Plate and SmittyBilt X2O Comp Winch. Will get some pictures when it stops raining and I can open the garage door. That might not be until Friday. Tomorrow will install the Warn Battery Disconnect and finish up my Flat Tow Wiring.

I would like a picture of your battery disconnect if you get a chance. Thinking of adding one to mine.

Random question - the steel plate for the steel bumper that sits in front of the bumper, behind the fairlead. Does that come with the steel bumper from Mopar, or is that another accessory that is needed to for the install?

If I pick up Rusty's winch plate and an out of the box Warn winch - do I need to buy that part in addition to?

That's the filler plate. The Warn winch plate comes with it, not sure about Rustys.
