Rear bumper plans?

So, after Iraq last time, I got my hands on a free ATV Warn winch. It was origionally mounted on a Gator 6X4. It has been sitting in the garrage for 2 years now and I want to use it. Not just because I have it, but because I hunt ALOT and think it would be nice to use as a hoist or something to get me out of a VERY small bind.

With that said, my overall intention is to build my own rear bumper. I want to recess the winch on the passenger side so it is protected by the bumper itself. I want to retain use of the stock tire carrier and tail gate and I want it to look good. No tubular or box steel plans.

I have a welder, 2 4x8 sheets of 3/8 steel, 7018 1/4" rods, some all purpose 90 degree brackets and everything i need to install the winch (to include a neat wiring harness and swich that can be mounted inside).

Does anyone know where I can find plans for a project like this? Maybe even something that can point me in the right dirrection.

Sorry to be so long winded, but I am new to forum talk and haven't learned how to paraphrase.

jeepfabrication.com used to have some good ideas and some plans but the site went Tango Uniform a while ago. Hopefully someone else will have some better ideas.

Yeah, I have tried google, but all I get is bumper reviews. You would think someone would at least have one on the market. I really have no imagination.

Why not use a hitch mounted bracket that you could remove when not in use?
