|FDWheelin||I also appreciate everyone's input. Fortunately for me, my wife got tired of hearing me talk about it so she went on JC Whitney today and bought the Warn plate for me. She's a keeper.|

Most plates have a small bend at the front for strength but I don't know how important it is. If you would use 1/2 inch I wouldn't be worrying at all. Get good steel too.

|FDWheelin||I fully intend on buying a plate designed for my Jeep and winch, I was mainly asking what company/brand out there is the most competitively priced but still the proper one. I have owned Jeeps and winched previously and understand the importance of a proper winch set up as well as the consequences of an improper set up.|

|rustycrawler||There are a few things that work well even if they are cheap and poorly made, a winch plate is not one of them. Spend the money and get a winch plate designed for your Jeep and designed for your winch. Save your money somewhere else....like on a paint job. A bad paint job won't hurt anyone, but a failed winch plate may well kill some one.|

|FDWheelin||I'll check it out. Thanks.|

I'm running a warn plate. It was around $120.
I think harbor freight sells them but don't know about quality, price or fitment.

I just bought a Warn xd9000i and I am looking for a relatively inexpensive winch plate for it. Any good recommendations?
