winch mounting plate

need some help from you guys. I have a 2008 Rhino and a Warn XT40 winch. The problem that I'm having is that I can't find a mounting plate for the 2008 that will allow a 4000# winch to be mounted on the front bumper.... Does anyone have a 4000# wich mounted on the front of an 08 Rhino? If so where did you get the mounting plate? Thanks in advance for the help.

I got mine off of e-bay. The plate will work with a RT30 or RT40 and other winches as well. I like it because it mounts the winch over the top of the receiver hitch and tucked inside the frame right in front of the radiator. The company is KFI products and it is 3/16" plate that has been powder coated. One note is that I just mounted the plate and have not received my winch yet but I like what I see.

The KFI mounting holes are centered...not sure where the winch will end up but if it is like my 9.5ti the fairlead will be centered on the bumper and the motor will hang to one side.
