Their website has a pretty good profile shot of it. Not completely side view but bet than the FB pic.

Surprisingly cheap too! I would've expected something like this coming from them to be upwards of 400$ lol.

I have been looking at the bumper plate kit for awhile now. I don't really "need" a winch (probably jinxed myself) but I likethe idea of having something more solid out in front.

Am I right in thinking this is an "upgrade" to what is under the Fascia already? I can't remember, it's been awhile since I had it off to install the LED Fogs.

Definitely a big upgrade. Basically you are replacing a piece of light pressed tin under there with a nice engineered 3-4 mm steel welded bar (strong enough to winch off.) you are adding a bit if weight but this is a small price to pay for such an upgrade.

Great thanks! I just ordered an Altitude Grill so I figure it makes sense to do the RRO bumper at the same time right?!?! LOL I mean the fascia has to come off anyways.

Has anyone installed the bumper and winch themselves? I am thinking of doing this if I can't find a shop that's reasonable. If you have are there any problems or tips you can share?

I installed the bumper and winch, I bought the bumper from rro and the winch directly from smittybuilt, cause I wanted the synthetic rope.

This is an easy DIY, for anyone that can hold a wrench without dropping it on his own foot :-)

Excellent, thanks! Where did you wire the winch to? Or are there detailed instructions for that included?

Winch is wired directly to jump start posts, as the battery is under seat in cabin.

Winch came with instructions. The RRO bumper instalation instructions are pretty good as well.
