Brad41, @Maximus-3 , or anyone else. I finally have the time to install the X20 with the Maximus-3 plate this upcoming weekend. Its nerve racking have the parts, but not a free day to get it all done. I have been going through all the instructions (doing a couple other installs this weekend too) and I have 1 question.

What about the Skid plate? When you add the Maximus-3 plate, you add a couple spacers in front of the frame. Will the push out of the bumper give you any troubles reattaching the skid plate? Not sure if there is "play" in the skid plate, or will I need to drill out the holes a bit larger?

Just making sure I am good to go here. Thanks for the help.
I just installed my winch with the Maximus plate Saturday night. I ran into fitment issues, at no fault to their product. There’s a mount that is welded ~ 3/8 lower on the pass side then the driver side. I had to cut away at the plate to make it work. Came out good tho. Had to fool around making a bracket for the Warn interrupt kit so this took a bit longer than expected.

Hey there,

I didn’t have any issues. For me, it was bolt on and go. Skid plate went back fine

Hooked up the winch last weekend, but got called into work by the end. Finally finished wiring up the Warn Interrupt to the Aux switches yesterday tho. Tested & confirmed - it works! Not too tough of an install. Hardest part is figuring out how to mount the solenoid & making it look half way descent.

Could you not wire the aux switch in place of the control box on/off switch? It wouldn’t be on the main power side.

Just ordered the Rusty plate and synthetic rope mount plate and a Cascadia 4x4 Flipster for my new X20 Comp 10k winch, will post pics once its mounted, thanks for the info in this thread ordering the Rustys plate saved and the synth rope mount is a nice touch.
Question:
I would like to get a cover for the X20 mounted in the factory steel bumper - anyone using one ?
