Front bumper mount options

So I have decided to start my winter project and start building a custom front bumper. I would to bolt it on more than the top and bottom bolts. Maybe running plates down the frame or something more stout. Any help or pics would be awesome, thank you.

I went overkill and a little odd on mine. I removed that front round bar between the frame rails. I then built a bumper out of 3x6 3/16 tubing. I turned the old bumper into mounts for the new bumper. I reversed the winchplate and mounted it under the bumper. This puts the winch behind the bumper and safe from most harm. I cut a hole in front and back to allow winch cable to be run thru the bumper and out the fairleads. I angled the ends of the bumper for better approach angles and used the cut off peices as gussets to add strength.
