Winch on Sahara Tube bumpers???

Has anyone ever installed a winch on the tube bumpers that come on a Sahara? If so, pics and any info you could think to pass along. Also did you buy a plate or make your own? Looking to have my buddy bend and weld me some steel at his factory to save a few bucks. Thanks guys!

I posted this in the pic forums but did not get any feedback...hoping this will be more successful.

Tube bumpers did not come stock on any jeep. Adding a winch plate depends on the tubes and if it will fit.

There is one that you can put it on but if its like that one above you would have to cut into it and make a spot that the winch can sit.

since you don't have the money why don't you just pick up a cheapo stock bumper? That'll allow a winch plate and if you look hard enough you could probably find a free one!

^ best idea so far...

Then its pretty easy to just use a plate. They can be had pretty cheap.
