Sorry for nooby question, driving me crazy not finding answers hahaha..!
google you failed me....
I have a smittybuilt XRC front bumper with a smittybuilt XRC10 winch(pretty worn) 2004 TJ Sport 5spd 4.0L 150k
I am looking to downsize to a smaller more compact bumper since the XRC sticks pretty far out there. I am in love with the Warn Rock Crawler front bumper and was wondering if i would be able to keep my current winch (has a smittybuilt winch plate) and just mount that seperate or does the winch/winchplate have to match the bumper's brand. The reason being i dont want to buy an entirely new winch/winchplate since this one works fine...
Been googling around and havent found any answers so i figure i would have to ask y'all
Thanks in advance
TL/DR: Does the winch/winch plate need to match the bumper's brand or can i use a different brand winch/winch plate.
