any winches on chrome tube bumpers???

I just put mine on and was wondering if anyone else has this set up?
I know that most people hate the chrome bumpers, but I like them.

chrome won't get you home, but the winch might

VERY old pic, but this is what mine looked like several years ago & before I replaced the bumper with a homebrew:

Oh, and yep, that's Bransford following me.

I know I'm quite a bit late to this discussion, but I was wondering what you needed, and what you removed to install the winch on your tubular chrome bumper. I also have one on my 1997 Jeep Wrangler Sport, and I want to add a winch to it. There is a black plastic cover with the Jeep logo where the Winch would sit. So, did you have to remove that plastic plate, and did you need to install a winch bracket or did the bracket go over it? And those two winch connectors under your bumper? Did you also install those? By the way, that winch setup looks really sweet.

Also a little late and also wondering how you mounted it. I've been looking to put a winch on, but wasn't sure if I would have the clearance with my bumper, but I belive I have the exact same as yours.
