Frame is different width. Might not be possible.

I'm aware of this, if it's as simple as plug welding holes and drilling new ones no biggie.. Was curious if the winch plate will fit between still...

Yes it has been done with a stock bumper. The stock JK bumper is a lot wider and looks out of place but there was someone who put on stubby ends and it does not look too bad.
