quadnkev The Blue Ox baseplate fastens to the outside of the frame and most winch mounts go on the inside of the frame. Do a google search for the following:

I installed the "Currie Enterprise Rock Jock" base plate on my 2012 JK and it has worked without any problems. I don't know if they make them for a 15 but you could look it up and give them a call. I put it on by myself took about 1 hr had to drill 3 holes and trim 2 pieces with a saws-all it also gives the front end some protection when off roading.

Our 2014 Jeep Rubicon came std with a winch-ready steel bumper, and we used a RoadMaster All Terrain tow package, the later is an easy bolt-on, but....it requires removal of the std skid plate. We are looking to have the skid plate modified at a metal fabrication shop to provide cutouts for the RoadMaster hardware, then we can re-install. Currently shopping for a winch as well, and focusing on ordering through either Jeep Parts Dept. or Quadratec.

Thanks for the info everyone, I like hearing about the 2014 Rubicon bumper.
We are looking at the Roadmaster All-Terrain tow bar too.
I understand the skid plate needs some trimming.
Not sure if I will go with the EV4 or EZ5 base plate, probably the EZ5.

We have been using the currie rock jock skid plate for towing the last several years with our stock rubicon bumper 2007 (plastic one)

I am wanting to buy the new oem hard rock/rubicon x steel bumper and install a winch.

Is anyone running this bumper with either the blue ox baseplate or the currie rock jock skidplate? Pictures would be helpful

Thanks!
