Bumper advice

Starting a bumper for my tj tomorrow and gotta decide which way to go. The main concern is fitting my 20" led bar on it. I want to keep it up front and not move it onto the hood or anything. So how do you think it would look inside the bumper? I'm either putting it in the bumper and making a stinger or I'll make a hoop that will be wide enough to hold it. That way it'd be more in between the headlights

There are a lot of different ways to do it. Some will look better than others so just do what you think would look best.

The higher your light the more throw you will get. So if it's a spot or a spot/flood I would mount it on top of the winch or on a hoop. If it's a flood mounting it in the bumper could look really good.

Could always do a grille hoop and mount on bottom side of that.
