Default Winch for 2018 Moab . . . ?

Howdy. New member here with a new 2018 Moab. Moab has a metal Jeep bumper.

What winch mounting plate or accessory do I need to install a winch? Any tricks or words to the wise would be appreciated!

Regards . . .

55 views and no help. Feel like I did something wrong.

check out either Mopar or I like the Maximus3 winch plate. I have it with a 2018 JK so not sure if the JL's are similar but I bet they are and they are an easy install.

I just don't think there are a ton of JL people perusing this forum. Even though there is a JL subforum, I think everyone is over on the main JL specific forums.

Thanks jadmt . . . the bumper on your jeep is the same as mine so I feel more comfortable now looking for suitable hardware.

Thanks, resharp . . . I have looked hard and the only JL specific forums I see are the two "JL Tech forums". What am I missing?

Default Winch plate for 2018 JL

You can go Mopar, Warn, or JCR. Those are the ones Iíve heard the best reviews on. Just google JL Jeep winch plate and check them out. I got a Warn one for Christmas, but Iím still waiting on my 2019 JLU. Might want to find a JL specific forum and search. There are lots of write ups on different winch plates for the JL.

I used the Mopar Winch Plate for mine, because they were the first ones available, and it worked & fit perfectly. Now you have a few other options and most are less money than the Mopar. I recommend Rusty's Offroad - they make really good quality parts.
