I have a standard Warn mount. It is slotted and matches the bolt pattern on the bumper bolts. Did not have to modify the mount at all. Of course this only works for foot forward mounts.

I do however recommend buying one of Ike's bumpers for the Series. That is the route I will take eventually.

A jeep plate will work if you just make a couple holes slightly oval shaped. It is the standard plate that comes with all the cheap winches.

Similar to Galen's although my mount has two bolts through the bumper with 1/4" backing plates, and also goes back to the three frame tabs that hold the radiator support. Does not use the bumper to frame horn mountings. Basically home-made to copy a drawing from the Optional Parts Catalogue. has been used in anger to haul my heavy-ass 109 up some steep hills, and to rescue a few deeply bogged larger vehicles as well. spe
