I got mine from a guy who custom makes them. Bolts right up to the OEM bumper. I also swapped out for grade 8 bolts and added 10K tow hooks.

I had one.

I was winching somebody uphill, loosened my strap from the tree holding me in place and tried to back up further up the trail to continue winching. Popped out of reverse, rolled right into the Jeep I was winching.

Bent it back like a pretzel easily. It was a bolt on type as well. So keep in mind, bolt on may NOT be the strongest solution. If you are using it for styling, it's fine, but if you want real winch protection, reinforce those bolt-on versions.

Before



Here it is now...






And what it did to my winch (9.5ti) that it was supposed to protect:



And the lights on top of it...



I'm going to grind off the best plating and put thicker plating on there for the mount and for the gusset. Also going to install a grille hoop that follows the grill lines and put tube between em for some extra strength. Once bolted on, it will all get welded to the bumper/winch plate setup. Kinda like this:
