Sorry no pictures from me but thought I would suggest that you might get a better response if you post this in the "Picture request forum".

typically the sway bar goes over the winch plate and if it goes that far back then i would drill through the winch plate and get longer bolts for the sway bar mount to hold that part of the plate down.

As far as cutting it down? im assuming its too wide? make it as wide as the frame and be able to be bolt into where the tow hooks bolt down for added strength.

Cut it with a cut off wheel, you will get the straightest most accurate cuts that way.
