Front bumper welded to the frame?

When I bought my jeep it had a front tube bumper installed on it.

Now I know that there is a mixed opinion on tube bumpers but personally I dont mind it. But I need to replace it since i plan on buying a winch and there is no room for one with this bumper.

But while examaining the bumper it seems that it was welded to the frame by the previous owner. Any ideas on the best way to get it off. Simply cut off and grind down?

I'd cut the tabs off the bumper first, then grind/break the tabs off the frame. Do the bottom first.
