    It's pretty solid - but we'll see how it holds up when I take it off road. It has thumb screws so you can easily remove the plate, but the way the holder sticks out is of concern. I figure I'll give it a shot and then if it doesn't work or gets bent I'll come up with another solution.

    Sounds good, I have a factor 55 link on my cable, doesn't look like it'll fit, how much room between fairlead and the plate holder?

    factor 55 has a flat link (http://factor55.com/product/flatlink/) as well which will sit flat against the fairlead. this is great for people that have to run a front license plate and mount it on the fairlead like h8roads did

    Did you have to cut the bumper specifically for the Zeon (I've read its a bit wider than others) or would any winch require that?

    Maximus-3 Winch Plate and Zeon 10S install on 10A/X/HR Bumper

    Yes, just the front opening. The cut gets covered though by the reinforcement plate so it doesn't have to be pretty.

    Also have to cut the pump bracket to fit the zeon. Can't speak to other winches since the zeon was all I had to install. It is pretty wide though compared to the M8000 I had years ago.

    Bump back from the dead.
    OP, Looks nice and Clean, Liking it!

    Anyone know if maximus-3 makes a plate that will fit the warn Powerplant on the hardrock (10X/RubiconX) bumper? This is the route I think I might want to go, I haven't researched the strength of the factory Steel Bumper&Maximus-3 Stinger (opposed to a LOD Crawler/EVO 1/4 pounded with stinger) But I have settled on the Powerplant winch for the added convenience of onboard Air (mainly for the tires, if i ever get to the point of swapping out axles and running air lockers, I have no reserves regarding a true onboard air kit like the ARB)

    Thank you in advance for any info anyone can provide.

    a powerplant is prob to big for the stock hole in the 10a bumper. you would most likely have to cut the bumper to widen it.

    I didnt even think to check that.

    according to WARN the powerplant dimensions are:
    Winch Dimensions: 24.31" L. x 6.7" D. x 13.46" H. (617mm L. x 170mm D. x 342mm H.)
    Mounting Bolt Pattern: 10.0" x 4.5" (254mm x 114.3mm)

    and sadly its just not going to make it without some trimming...

    After some additional research, THIS guy was able to install the winch without any modification to bumper (he custom made his winch plate, as when teh 10X first came out, there wasn't much available for the bumper aftermarket:

    I was just looking that up too. The manual says that's a standard mounting bolt pattern though, so the Maximus 3 mounting bracket itself should probably fit the PowerPlant on it, as long as you trim the bumper to fit around it.

    As nice as the MOPAR 10A / X / HR bumper looks, it's not going to be as strong as the LOD or EVO bumpers. They are really heavy duty welded steel, with the stinger welded in. The steel in the MOPAR bumper is thinner. The Maximus 3 stinger looks at least as durable as the MOPAR bumper it's made for, but still not quite as sturdy as a bumper that has the stinger welded on.

    If you're thinking about getting air lockers down the road though, I say start building for the way you want your Jeep to be when it's all built and just get an onboard air setup from the start. All told, the price of an ARB compressor and a Zeon winch is comparable to the PowerPlant, and it will save you and extra purchase and some duplication of work later on.
