    I just installed my sso Slimline bumper today...

    I didn't put much thought into the plate until the bumper was already installed ha ha. Right now I have the hoop with cut out for a winch that I got the cover plate for.

    Whats everyone doing to attach plates to the bumpers?

    I actually found these on Amazon but didn't feel to comfortable with it. Dealers use them to pop on the dealer plate quickly....

    I'd be afraid of it falling off over time/getting stolen/vibration rubbing off the powder coat -rust

    I use the cascadia 4x4 folding bracket. Only time its folded on me while driving is going 90+ mph on a road trip. Fits right on the winch plate holes.

    That is what I did. Two magnets with two bolts drilled thru the plate on the sides and a bolt with a rubber bumper at the top. Covers the fairlead
