I have posted my dislikes about the M3 winch plate. They have made the latest version Gen2 plate slightly thicker, but that only addresses one of the issues I had. Go here for more info:I can't find anywhere with negative views on this one.
I considered a new bumper altogether, but I just liked the stock bumper so much I wanted to keep it! I really like the OEM look and understated/hidden nature of the set up. That's just me.Anyone ever regretted spending so much on a winch plate instead of just a few hundred more for a good aftermarket bumper?
That looks cool too. I did mine yesterday and working alone it took me about 5 hours. I considered cutting the plastic trim piece, but then I went with Rubitrux's Trim Plates (I think it was $50 or $60??). Looks really clean.Maximus-3 here too. I cut out the delete plate on mine as well! Also cut out the plastic frame cover behind the winch. Finishes it off nicely.
I now have ZERO room/space between the winch and the bottom of the grille. I mean zero. I cant slide a neoprine cover for the winch by LOLThe hardest time for me was sliding it in behind the winch and around the wiring. Not a lot of room there when the winch is taking up all the space.
