A lot of people have the stock bumpers with a winch or aftermarkets that you can mount them too.If you want to keep the stock bumper you will have to get a winch plate that secures to the frame heads.You will then be good to go.

Like the factory bumper, even most aftermarket bumpers will require a winch mounting plate, not many have an integrated winch mounting plate. The winch, via the mounting plate, doesn't really mount to the bumper anyway. A winch's mounting bolts really just pass through the bumper to the frame below so the bumper's strength is really a non-factor here.

When you have a choice, buy American.

He has an extra 10 seconds of extra time to write that? Seriously, he's right. How can somebody expect to get answers if they can't even form a sentence?

A sentence requires a capital letter and a form of end punctuation.
