I'm looking for information regarding the front license plate bracket on a Rubicon X front bumper. I currently do not have a winch but will in the future I was wondering if any one had pics showing a front license plate solution with a winch mounted. Thanks!
I built my own Hawse mount. I took a roller mount, and removed the actual roller clippy things. Then went to ACE Hardware and bought some bolts and rubber plug thingy's. So the plugs slide right into the slot in the Hawse fairlead. It does wobble some but you really have to pull to get it to come off. I can get some better pics if you need.

I found a thread, I think under search on this website on how to do yourself, spent about $8 for 2 hinges and a flat piece of aluminum from the shop, a little spray paint and fits just right over the winch rope, flips up when in use. I can send a photo if needed but looks absolutely professional and I get lots of comments on it. Save the additional money for gas. Simple to do
Can you post a pic of your setup? I just got the 10A WARN winch mounted, and now the license plate looks ghetto just zip-tied to the grill. I need a better solution! Maybe even a little help on how you did it too (unless the photo is self-explanatory). THANKS!
I saw your setup and improvised a little. I bought a hinge from Home Depot, tapped some holes on the underside of the bumper, and screwed it on. The other side of the hinge is screwed in to a plate holder. Now when the "dangling" plate hits some low clearance, the plate just swings out of the way!
Tuffy mount if you're using rollers. Daystar isolator fits behind it. License plate flips up when winch is in use. I don't like how far it sticks in front of the bumper though, so I'm probably going to ditch it.
2014 Rubicon X 2 door with Superwinch 9500 Tiger Shark winch, Maximus 3 winch plate with centering plate option for fairhead, roller fairhead, Factor 55 winch hook billet replacement end for clevis use tucked behind a Quadratec roller fairhead pop on & off plate holder (nice cost effective steel plate holder) This hole set up on the Rubicon X is very clean and sleek.
