Just look for a winch mount bumper. When you are shopping you will see that some are winch mount ready and others are not. If there not than you are gonna need to do some fabbing. With all the bumpers out there this is not needed. Just look or call the company you are looking at, they will guide you to your needs.

I just put on a Rugged Ridge XHD bumper. They make a version that comes with a cutout for a winch so you don't need a separate winch plate. Works great.
