Front bumper

Ok so I've got a 92 yj that I'm building a front bumper, rear bumper rocker guards and a removable roof rack. I will be starting this this upcoming school year in my metal trades/4h program. I can weld, grind, oxy fuel system, and plasma cam engineering skills.

My problem is I'm going to go with tube fenders and don't know if I should go with a full length outside fender to outside fender bumper of just frame length bumper. I'd appreciate some feed back. Thanks. This is my jeep as of now. And along the line of these bumpers

Frame length looks best with flat fenders IMO

Another question is what size top plate would you recommend? I am mounting a xrc8000 winch to it and was planing on 1/4 top plate and 3/16 side plates. Do you think 1/4 inch can hold the winch with out budging? And il be using 4 grade 8 bolts on top and 2 grade 8 bolts in the bottom

A 1/4 plate bolted 3 per side to the frame will be strong enough to lift your entire jeep off the ground.
