I'm not normally a fan of head on shots, so I guess I don't seem to take them. I do have a couple posted below. If I get a chance I will get a better, low angle head on shot for you. (We loaned out our Audi to family in town, which means my girl is driving the Jeep today so my access to take pictures today is limited)

I thought about just a winch plate for a long time. I wanted something a little cleaner looking and wanted to keep my factory fogs.

I run the fogs as daytime running lights thanks to the AEV Procal. You can never have enough light or visability at night, snow storms, etc.

The shackles are $120 on the abrle website.

Nothing that some creative brackets wouldn’t solve.

Would the MBRP frame mounted Light bar fit with this bumper??

I think it might ...
MBRP Inc Performance Exhaust - Snowmobile, Diesel, Muscle Car, Exotic, Motorcycle and Sport Truck Exhaust Systems.
I have it currently installed w/8 inch KC HiLites and being it mounts on the inside of the frame mounts I believe in may have the clearance...
I posed the question to Abrele and waiting on an answer, it would look sweet with this setup!

I don't see why they wouldn't work.
