Works fantastic, just don’t install the base plate upside down. Ask me how I know….4 stars only because it’s fairly expensive….but 100% needed if you’re doing a hidden winch and your area requires a front plate.
Overall a great product. Did not come with instructions but after a few minutes, that was solved. Since I am over cautious, I coated all surfaces and fasteners with another coat of rust resistance paint; bought another pin as it only had one pin to keep the plate up . . . and I had to drill holes to align for US license plates. Still with all this, I still gave it 4 stars because it works and I could not find a product like this anywhere except at Offroad Animal! Installation was a snap. I love this product for my 2017 4 X 4, Ford F150 with a WARN Ascent Bumper and WARN VR EVO 12S winch.
I received my flip license plate bracket in 3 days. Fast shipping. Only reason for 4 starts is there were no instructions but I looked at this page and found how to assemble it correctly. This is the only flip plate I would buy as it fits on my WARN Ascent bumper for my F150 perfectly since my fairlead is recessed into the bumper. Love the fact that the cotter (R-Clip) keeps the plate up or down position well. Nice powder coating as well but I beefed up the fasteners with extra washers and also sprayed another coat of paint onto the frame and fasteners for additional rust protection. Does this product do what I want it to do? Absolutely. What I buy it again? Absolutely! Will you be happy with this product as well? Absolutely.
Installed this during my hidden winch and offroad animal tow hooks installation. I hope to install the offroad animal steel bumper one day! Check out the install here: https://youtu.be/OTJCBipq_v0
Great product concept and easy to install. Just remember to install it low to the hawse especially if you are mounting the nudge bar! If you dont there will be some interference when you try to raise it. Otherwise works fantastic!
