winch questions

Hey how do I know that a certain winch will mount onto a certain bumper? Obviously when I see the warn mounting kit it says it will fit the warn bumper, but what about this bumper

XRC Rock Crawler Winch Bumper by Smittybilt and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware-RH2

with a warn m8000?

All Jeep-size winches, with the lone exception of the Warn 8274, use the same mounting bolt pattern and dimensions, and all winch mounting plates made to be installed onto Jeeps use the same mounting bolt locations that thread down through the bumper into the frame below.

So long as the bumper is not a tubular style, pretty much any winch mounting plate should work with any bumper so long as the bumper is flat on top.

And that particular Smittybilt bumper appears to be winch-ready winch means the winch bolts directly to the bumper without need for a separate winch mounting plate. So pretty much any normal Jeep-size winch other than the Warn 8274 should bolt right on without issue.
