So I went with the Warn VR8 synthetic. Super stoked I went with the steel bumper upgrade. The winch and the warn mounting plate paired up nicely. Install tip for those of you interested. Hand tighten everything then torque things down so you have room to massage the mountain holes and brackets. I added a Maximus 3 plate with hooks in red which gives me a good spot to anchor the winch hook and matches the factory Trim.
