yeah I guess I should have worded it better, I should have just asked what do you dislike about your winch plate if any, and I was hoping that I could see what was the most popular option with the pole. oh well I'm probably just going to go with Rusty's because it is a 1/4 inch thick, $200, and I think it will work with Maximus-3's tow hooks.No one here is going to be able to tell you which one is best because everyone has just one plate. So, to them, their plate is the best. I've used the Warn plate and I know it's very well built. It may even be over engineered. But I know diddly about the others.
