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?

Mud, it's not just wet's a way of life!
