Winch bumper mount question

93 ZJ, I-6 4.0L

I'm thinking of building a front bumper. I have found many great ideas on the style of bumper but I have a question. I want to build a winch bumper, I don't have a winch yet but I want to build a bumper that can hold a winch.

1. How deep should the bumper be to hold a winch?

2. Are most winch's the same depth?

3. Is there a set clearance I need from the winch to the grill?

I plan on using a 2x4 tube as the mount into the uni-body channel. I also plan on using crush sleeves with bolts on the side and putting the nut strip on the inside of the mount tube. Is this fine?
