Thought about having a plate fabricated.... Any ideas? Thanks!
Most any winch mount should work fine with your bumper. I don't recommend the Harbor Freight Tools version just because it doesn't work without additional drilling.
This one from Tomken works nicely, I had one on my previous TJ... TOMKEN MACHINE - Item Detail
It has a cool mini-bullbar in front of the winch that would serve to help protect the winch from smaller impacts.
