which winch bumpers can use factory fogs

I'm interested in swapping out my factory bumper for one that can accept a winch.

I know i can add a winch to the factory bumper, but I would rather have an aftermarket fully metal with no plastic.

I am only interested in bumpers that can accept factory fog lights. I'm also really looking for one that also has aux lighting mount points.

I have found LOD and Rampage. Are there any others i should consider?

I do not want the stinger look. I don't care if it's shorty, mid or full width.

Thanks in advance.

Ace engineering. I have their stubby with the factory fogs. Pretty sure the mid-width will work too. Great prices too.

I also have the RR XHD and the fogs bolted right up. FYI, I had a guy back into me, very slow speed. He hit the left front D-ring shackle on me with the face of his bumper....He lost the fight. Put a very noticeable crease on his, not even a mark on my bumper.

I have the stubby, with the standard end caps and a light bar, with the XRC 8000 winch.

The rugged ridge looks great - a couple questions

Do you need to do anything other than bolt it on? Any suspension changes due to the weight?

Why no side bars?

Expedition One is another. All of their bumpers use the factory fogs, but I have the Trail Series on mine. I love this company's products.



You can find them at http://www.expeditionone.biz.

Warn and Shrockworks also use the stock fogs in their mid and full width offerings. I don't think any stubbies will use stock fogs unless they mount the winch high in front of your grille. The Shrockworks also has the aux light tabs, and I think the Warn also has them.

Expedition One does have a stubby (DX model) that uses the factory fogs AND mounts the winch low. I think it is a pretty nice looking bumper and the fogs are on removable wings.

A new, cheap option that just hit the market is the Rough Country hybrid stubby. You can now get it with fog light end caps that work with the factory units. I requested a price from the rep over at JK-F for the main bumper, d-rings, and fog light end caps. $311.49 shipped to my door! Haven't pulled the trigger, and probably won't until I get a winch, but definitely a great price.

I know they're not that popular but I like the Mopar off road bumper w/fogs and winch.

I just put the best top Highrock 4x4 bumper on mine. It has what your looking for. I didn't add a winch because I couldn't really justify it.
