Is This a Winch Plate?

I recently bought a 2010 Rancher that Iím cleaning up. Itís my first quad and this is my first post. I would like to add a winch and have read some posts and watched some videos.

It appears to have a ďplateĒ but looks different from the winch plates at YouTube and Amazon. On the other hand, the videos show a void in this area prior to installing a plate. I know this must seem dense of me, but... is it a winch plate? Iíve also noticed it lacks the curved up portion that a fairlead would normally mount to. But if itís not for a winch, what is it, and why do other Ranchers Iíve seen not have it?

Looks like a winch mount plate but missing the fairlead mount. Hard to say what brand

Go to KFI and see what winch mounts they offer.

Looks low for a winch mount, maybe a plow mount, thats where the bottom part of my plow mount hooks up but it doesn't look like that, I have a 08 420 rancher

Hmm.... I didnít consider a (snow) plow plate. I suppose thatís possible for a Rancher with manure. Even so, Iíve looked at KFI and elsewhere and canít find a matching plate. It was definitely added after it was bought new, right?

The more I look at it I think it is a winch mount who makes it I don't know, mine is a 08 it does not have that flat plate on it, I bought mine new too so it wasn't taken off. The winch does mount in there but on mine it mounts on the plate that's angles up ward.
