From the looks of it, there is no place to mount a winch on your bumper (unless it is made to be hidden inside the bumper).

If the bumper won't take a winch and you don't want to replace your bumper, you might be able to go this route:

Hidden Hitch 65055 - Hidden Hitch Front End Receiver for 07-13 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

WARN 75330 - WARN Multi Mount Winch Frame - Quadratec

Whatever avenue you take, get a winch rated for at least 9K. Winches rated higher are basically overkill for the Wrangler and the price difference can be quite a bit. Although QTec does offer their own branded 9K and 11K winches for less than $300 and $400 respectively.
