stock bumper winch mount

I have searched to no avail. I swear I have seen a JK that someone mounted a winch behind the stock bumper with some trimming. Has anyone done this here? Pics appreciated

A guy I work with just did this. Only a small, fairlead-sized hole was cut. I'll see if I can wrangle up some pics from him.

I'm not trying to be a d!ck, but here are some threads I found by searching for "winch stock bumper JK" on the forum. I'm considering this route too so I'm doing a little researching since I won't be able to buy front and rear bumpers for two years.

Mine is mounted upside down, but a I have seen several mounted on top as well. I used a $30.00 universal mounting plate from Harbor Freight

You cut the plastic cover so that you can fold it back and plastic "weld" (solder) it back together at the seams. A little bumper repair epoxy smoothed in and sanded and it comes out pretty good.

looking for Sharkbite

I know this thread is way old, but I would like to attempt the plastic welding that you did, Sharkbite - I tried PM'ing you, but your mailbox is full... :S

Could I get those instructions from you to plastic weld, please?


Thanks!
