ended up getting the x20 synth for $487 and the artec plate for $165 shipped. Anyone run these two? Smitty says its the same bolt pattern as warn just slightly nervous (with my luck) that they won't fit together.

Northridge has them right now for $492 and I had a $5 off gift card . You can use Return19 for anything else to save a few more bucks .
Thanks...what bumper are you going with?

Have you used your winch yet? I'm still undecided as to which winch plate to order for my steel bumpers. Any issues with bending of the 3/16 metal?
Any problems with it bending being reported? I've only heard that there was one random case but nothing other than that.

No, I haven't heard anything bad about the Artec plate. I did hear about one with a competitors plate which was also 3/16" so I thought I'd check. Artec does claim to be superior to their competitors plate (which I assume also 3/16").

so far i only used my winch once with the artec plate, and it was fine.

Do you have the factory steel Rubicon bumpers? I see in your profile pic that you have the regular bumpers so thought I'd ask.
