Just 1 mounting plate, however i'm going to move winch back a bit from the front of the machine , little easyier to access spool lock, also there is one lug that is interffearing with the head lamp bucket , i don't want to make a hole on it sooo, but thats it !!! I may even fab up a whole new one out of plate aluminum.

the 06 mounting kit only comes with one plate. the other plate should have come with the winch. the 06 and 07 mounting kits are different.

Here is a pic of my RT30 with the Warn plate. The back mounting brackets are bent due to me ramming a tree that my dad cut and wasn't falling. The winch is fine, but because the tree was hitting my fairlead rollers it bent the bracket. It's very strong though because it only bent alittle and I was hitting that tree pretty hard. Hard enough it was throwing me up over the bars even with me bracing for the impact. I am taking it off this weekend to bend it back into shape. Anyway, hope this helps. I like it up close to the front so sticks and whatnot won't hit the winch. No matter what plate you use the roller fairlead will be out the just enough in front of the brushguard that if you are hitting something in the center the fairlead and winch plate is going to take the hit first. With the new RT and XT series, the clutch engage/disengage (big red knob on end of winch) is easy to turn even with gloves so it won't be a problem as the guy before said it was. I noticed he had a older model Warn with the circular knob on it. Anyway, hope this helps.
