I have Rusty's front winch. It's an extremely beefy bumper that has taken some serious trails on, and yet it looks like it did when it arrived from UPS. BUT, it does have that dreaded gap between the fender on bumper. Post some pictures when you get the JCR (if you're getting that one), I'm really excited to see one.

I have a Nate's recessed winch bumper.
It fit perfectly without any hassles.
Other than the typical complaints of flaky customer service and lack of answering emails, I am extremely happy with my bumper. It is an excellent value!
My rig had the factory tow hooks, so I had the OEM reinforcement plates. I used them to fabricate
Nate's provided the bumper, pre-runner bar and the optional through bumper welded D-ring tabs.

I made some custom modifications to it to suit my needs:
expanded wire mesh filler panel to protect my Hella lights from brush
light tabs for the Hella lights
a front receiver (for a cargo tray or recovery hook)
diamond plate filler panels (I didn't like the large gaps on the ends)
tow bar brackets (welded and bolted through the bumper - I have towed my rig with this bumper - ZERO problems!)
towing wiring harness socket w/spring loaded cover

Attached are pictures of my front bumper.
