Any stock JK bumper mods w/pics?

If any one has modified their stock JK bumpers would love to see what you did with them.

Some peeps put stubby kits on em. Some add winches. Still others add bull bars, or lights, or...

Let's face it, the front bumper is merely a doorway to creativity; once you cross the threshold, your life will never be the same.

Okay, maybe it's not that big a deal.

Some links:

Take the control box off and remote mount it somewhere else, like under the hood. an 8k to 9k winch fits nicely between the frame rails, both width and height wise.

Yes it is.

I've seen them done upright but the little skid plate under the bumper needs to be removed to do that.

Not a squirrel, it's a recovery vehicle. Dragged the Jeep all the way up the driveway.

Yeah, yeah. My youngest son was taking the dog for a walk when I was working on the bumper. He wanted to lend a hand, so he threw the leash on the hook.
