Superwinch, Smittybilt

i have a smittybilt XRC front bumper with the winch plate built in already.
I am getting the superwinch LP8500.

I was wondering if it will work with my bumper in terms of bolt pattern and will it fit?

Thanks

I would talk directly to someone from smitty. That is what I did to ensure I was going to have a matching bolt pattern with my engo and my xrc I just bought.

In theory, yes. But since it's a smittybilt all the holes will probably be off by 1/4 inch anyway...

All known Jeep size winches with the exception of Warn's 8241 have the same mounting dimensions so it'll fit.
