Winch mounting TJ

Happy New Year; fellow Jeepsters. Looking for some advice, please: I bought a 98 TJ a few months ago. It has a 3" dual tube front bumper; probably from Quadratec. Santa Claus brought me a new winch. I started looking for a mount location on the bumper and all I see is two flanges; that don't line up with any of the 4 mount holes on the bottom of the winch. After reading more about the bumpers offered from Quadratec I see that they come as "winch mount" and "light mount". I'm assuming I have the light mount. Does anyone know of a plate available that I could use to easily retrofit the winch to?

Is it one of the smittybuilt chrome tube bumpers? I'm no expert but I'm almost positive I've read here on the forum that you can't mount a winch to those types of bumpers.
