Winch Mounting Plate for Stock bumper?

So I am ordering a winch this weekend. I was surprised to see that the winch mounting plate was almost as much as the winch!

Is this the best plate to get for the price/use?

Warn 74247 - WARN Winch Mounting Plate for 07-11 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK with OE Bumper - Quadratec

I also decided on this winch: Warn 86245 - WARN VR8000 Winch - Quadratec

Now that I am looking, wouldn't it make more sense to just get a new front bumper w/winch mount for only a little more money?
