    Hi, I just bought a warn 8274 and mounting plate off of a jeep. On the front of my truck a have a diamond plate bumper that is 11 inches wide and is made out of 1/4. Should i go and put a piece of steel under the bumper to spread the force over a larger area than just the 4 bolts into the bumper? Thanks

    I'm having a very hard time visualizing what you did with your mounts.

    It isn't exactly a work of art but I mounted mine like this:

    The flat is 3/8", the pipe is 2" sch 40, the skid is 1/4" diamond plate. Now I wish I would of narrowed the front before I made the bumper. I also wish I would of braced the pipe since it is now bent in and kinked.

    I kinda followed the same theme for keeping the winch up high.No work of art here either. 1/4" face plate welded to 1/2" plate.

    This started out as a Jeep wrangler mount.

    1/2" Plate

    The frame would stretch like silly putty before that mount failed. :D
