I have a warn 37170 Winch plate WARN 37170 - WARN Winch Mounting Plate for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec
and a warn xd9000 with a viking synthetic line and the armorology aluminum fairleed hawse. bottom item: Product Info
I haven't had a chance to try out how it fits together yet as I need to enlarge the bolt mounts on the mounting plate to accommodate the bolts which are 7/16ths. My concern is it appears the opening to the fairleed is roughly the same size and potentially larger than the cable opening on the plate.
Has anyone tried this combination or have any input? If it is going to too small, i'd like to modify the plate prior to install (working outside at high altitude in the mountains...)
Thank you all in advance!
