I had no issue with the winch and purchased one but ended up returning it. I went to two places and both refused to install it in the Arcus bumper I have on my truck. They said they have tried installing those big winches on that bumper in the past and had nothing but problems. I couldn't convince them to do the install. So I returned it to the store. I am back again to waiting if maybe someone might do something on Black Friday or Cyber Monday itself and if not then I am going to just get the Smittybuilt X20 10K Synthetic which I know will fit into the Bumper. It will likely be just slightly over $600 at 4 Wheel Parts
Not sure why shops refused to install for you...My Apex installed easily on to my Arcus bumper. Its a snug fit but solid as a rock.

Can I mount a winch on the stock plastic JT bumper with plate etc?
I have seen a plate that allows mounting a winch on/above the plastic bumper but I am not sure of the manufacturer.

So just happened to be looking over at the 4 Wheel Parts site and they have the Smittybuilt X20 10K Synthetic for $540.00 if anyone is interested as well as some other winches.

You could add a front hitch receiver and a hitch winch mount... it's what I'm thinking of using to have a non-permanent winch AND you'd have front and rear winching!

I've seen this less than $150 - https://www.curtmfg.com/part/31086 and tons of options on hitch winch mounts, from super cheap to $$$, that could end up cheaper than the winch plate above ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I ordered that one. On paper it's a better deal than the Smittybilt or HF winches. It looks like it's a new winch line from them since they got bought out. I'm willing to give it a try for 200+ less than the Warn. It's also on sale on Amazon today for 645 with free shipping which is a big deal to us AK/HI guys.

Here is the Rockhard winch plate. Only issue for me is I want to find a low profile winch so it doesn’t block the trail cam, and to get max airflow to the radiator.

Just ordered a Warn evo 10S for $740 shipped. Its $695 plus $40 shipping and if state tax is applicable on amazon. Considered the superwinch but the difference in warranty for the price swung me towards the warn.

I just saw your post and thought what where'd you see 695. I see it now, but shipping for me was a tad higher than the $40. For 740 I'd go Warn too.

Yeah that's a lot more expensive. I paid $795 because of Comifornia sales tax but I would have paid tax on the superwinch too so its pretty much a wash.

I ended up with the Smittybuilt Gen 2 H20 10K Synthetic for $540. No shipping since 4 wheel parts is about 10 miles from my house. It should cover my needs
