Best front bumper and winch

Looking to replace the front bumper to put in a bumper, brush guard, with a winch assembly. Lol i know that doesnt make sense. Just looking for a good set up that looks great and can hold to pull me out when stuck. Is there anything that comes with a winch? And whats a goood brand warn?

Thanks and sorry for the newb posts ive never owned a jeep just everything else!

The LSR bumper Is the best IMO, ProtoFab and ARB are other options. Bumpers do not come with winches, you need to buy that separate. There are many brands, I just bought a smittybuilt 8k synthetic line winch. It should be a good middle of the line winch. warn has always had a good reputation, but it seems way too expensive as mine will only see periodic use.

Custom 4x4 fab! I love mine it's been through heck and back. It's made of good thick steel and the price was pretty darn good!

LSR would be top or my list.....if it was not for the cost. I would like bumpers front (with winch) and rear for mine but the cost is real high. Thats why in putting together a "behind the std bumper" winch mount like I gcjeepIng,s thread. I have found the odd good deal on used in the US but the deal has died when the vendor quotes four or five hundred dollars for shipping due to high weight. Do any of you UK Jeepers know or a good source over here or any UK made ones?

I tried and tried to get any info on the LSR to order without any luck. Gave up and plan to fab a hidden mount instead and save the 100-120 lbs off the front end.

I think most here would agree the Iceland is the best. It is a steel subframe with an actual fiberglass bumper that covers the winch mount. the company just went out of business though so they are rather hard to come by but they are out there

I heard that Kevin's Offroad is starting to sell the LSR front bumper. Have not been on their site to confirm that though.

KOR always sold them. I heard there was an issue at LSR. I'm sure things will get straightened up.
