That one is nice and I have a friend that has one. But, I simply bolted some Maglite flashlight clips to my front license plate. My plate clips on the roller fairlead perfectly. I just remove the plate when I hit the trail and toss it under the front driver's seat. Cost was about $5 bucks. I made it back in 2009. This cheap mod is still going strong today...... lasted longer than my Smitty winch did.

haha did you write the review on Amazon that suggested this? I was going to buy a fairlead plate holder from Amazon, but one of the reviewers suggested buying the maglight clips instead, so thats what i did...
