I don’t think that anyone is arguing that the bumpers between the JL and JT aren’t identical, they are...

In my scenario warn sends optional reinforcement brackets that required grinding off in order to mount the reinforcement brackets. They might not even have those bolts on all JT’s but they were present on my launch edition. My buddy has an 19 JLUR and he doesn’t have those boots. If you are only mounting a winch mount plate you will not have any issues for sure. The side reinforcement brackets are what i was talking about.

Anyways, just posting as FYI. Mine is mounted and have no issues.

I will admit that I have not had the endurance to watch and read all of the reviews and a forum search came up dry so I will ask the team and see what y'all know. Will the winch plate for the steel bumper option JL cross over to the JT? I am about to explode and not write it as wench plate like I see so often. As for me, my wench rides in the passenger seat not the front bumper. If you did convince yours to ride outside please tell me how you did it.
Love it! My 3.5 year old son corrected my wife just last night! "Mom, it's call a winch hook! It's not called a wench!" I will say that she knows it's a winch and he just heard her wrong, but still.....

New poll:

Is it a winch or a wench?

Based upon your answer, did you graduate the 8th grade?

[Creates new forum for those that answer 'wench'. Starts first thread about usage of 'Their', 'There' and 'They're' in the English language. Laughs at each subsequent contribution.]

So aside from the $500-600 Mopar one, and the Maximus plate, are there any others that work with a JL/JT Mopar steel bumper and do not require cutting/bending?

There are plenty of them. It's hard NOT to find a bunch with a basic search. I just did a Maximus-3 and I will tell you that both my helper and I were *very* impressed with the completeness of the instruction manual, and the build quality is superb. It's expensive but worth it.

I also added the shackle loops, and THAT part required cutting. The winch plate does not.

Rugged Ridge Sparatacus plate and the Mopar steel bumper are compatible. The winch is not perfectly centered, but close enough.
