Looks like this might work. https://sdhqoffroad.com/collections/...lt-winch-mount . Being an 18 is why it's probably not included in the list but it should work as the 15-18 are the same body and frame.

Thanks for the reply. I looked real hard at this one. Talked with the company rep and he stated that because of the dip in the front bumper of the 2018 it would not work. The company is working on a 2018 mount but do not have a time frame for production.

I'm assuming you want it for the front, and for the winch to always be with you.

That said, in the off-chance you're like me and you only need it for occasional use when off-roading to get you out of a tough spot or to pull a friend out, you may want to look at a rear hitch-receiver mounted winch. I have a Warn Zeon 10,000 lb multimount winch that I throw in the truck if I go off-roading. There is a quick-connect plug at the hitch-receiver that you just plug in, to get power. It's not for everybody, especially if your goal is to pull yourself forward, but for my needs, it's perfect, and I don't have the extra weight or bulk of the winch when I don't need it.

Exactly what I'm looking for, but they don't make it for the 2018 yet...

I messaged Rough Country to see if they were going to make one for the 2015+ and they didnt have plans for it.

Default Trying to fit the 2009-2014 to my 2018

I just purchased the 2009-2014 kit from RC. The rep told me i have 90 days to return it and to see what i can do. Going to see if i can modify it to mount to my 2018 or if i can make a mock up of something that will work from it. Hoping it will fit!!
