Stock bumper and winch

is there any way to put a winch on the front with the stock bumper in place? I know there is probably some cutting of the bumper but with a winch plate can this be done? and if yes any pics or which winch plates/winches were used

Warn's Mounting Plate Kit (PN 74249) allows the Warn M8274-50 winch to be attached to a factory bumper.

But, it only works for the M8274-50.

Sorry, no pics.

Warn PN 74247 '07 Wrangler JK (Includes Rubicon & Unlimited)

This is the part number for the Warn factory bumper mount for Warn winches other than the M8274-50

There is also mopar part number 82209740 that includes a winch mount...just a bit more $

I just installed my Mopar bumper and I was shocked how cheep the factory bumper was. Are there any pics of the factory bumper after being abused? As for the factory bumper and winch I believe that might be asking for trouble if you going to shell out the dough for a winch might as well upgrade the bumper.

eh.. if warn says there winch plate will work with stock then i believe it. i would do a little more research before a buy though. Thanks for the links and reason im not wanting to do the bumper is this is a daily driver with very little off road time because there is none around my house. The winch i could use because when i do want to go off road people always cant go and usually being smart can keep u out of trouble but u never know while off road
