Front Bumper/Winch Question

This is the exact same bumper I have:


But then I see ones like this:


So I want to get a winch for my Rubicon, and I want to know if it would be a bitch to get a winch on there? I'm wondering if a plate pops out for the winch, do I have to cut into the bumper to make it like the other one, or are they just totally different bumpers? (Trying not to sound too stupid here)

To sum it up:
I have the bumper in first picture.
I want a winch on it.
Want it to look like second picture...
Possible or no?

Its 5 AM here in MA so I don't feel like heading outside and looking right now. Also as you can probably tell, I am new to all of this.
(Attached picture is of my actual Jeep, don't have any better pictures on my computer.)

Thank you!

I think you can cut it and add this Rugged Ridge winch plate.
Rugged Ridge 11541.13 - Rugged Ridge Modular Winch Mounting Plate for 07-14 JeepĀ® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec
There is only 20 bucks difference between a winch and non winch version
so I would say all that missing in yours is the cut. See this link step 1.
Rugged Ridge Modular Heavy Duty Bumpers - Quadratec
Good luck.
2010 JK added 17" rims and 32 inch At tires, hitch, Ace rock sliders, Barricade bumper, light guards, grab handles, floor mats, Grabars,hood latches, fuel door, 2" Rancho sport lift with 9000XL shocks, TerraFlex Monster track bar, Moog drag link, quick disconnects and Rancho stabilizer and flip kit.
