I am not a big fan of the bumper, but the hitch on the front is really cool. You can get a winch plate that goes into the hitch and then you can remove the winch when you dont want it on there.

thought of that but nah im looking for a permanent mount, might leave the stock one on, but someone cut me a deal for the front and rear for a few hundred, i need the rear bumper to mount the rock hard cage to frame, maybe i'll just mount the winch plate i bought on top of the stock bumper and sell the front one for some $$..

Doesnt look like there is enough room for a winch unless you take off the plastic strip behind it and fab up a metal plate instead. Can just bolt the winch plate to the bumper and the plate then.

I like that bumper, simple design with light holes, along with a trailer hitch for a basket or whatever....
