I have a 2017 Rubicon hard rock. I need suggestions for a winch plate with the least modifications. The winch is a Smittybilt X20.

I used the one from Maximus 3 and had zero issues. No modifications needed. I mounted a warn vr winch but my understanding is that they are both small body winches so you shouldn’t have any issue.

I also used the Maximus 3 winch plate with the hook trim plate for the Smittybilt X20 10K with no modifications. 10K winch fit without vacuum relocation.

Looks great. I saved your link to the winch plate. I have a '16 Rubicon Hard Rock and want to do the same thing. No relocation of the vacuum pump?

vacuum pump did not have to be relocated. The winch plate is a very tight fit. Had to pound it in with rubber mallet.

How much clearance between the control box and gril? That winch with AEV bumper is REALLY tight / pushes against the grill.
