that would be great if it bolted over the bumper so I could keep the crome on
I will have to see if smitty has a mounting plate like that

with a stock bumper you can use a normal winch plate. th eplate has to be mounted on the 4 bolts where the tow hooks are mounted.

you can use the tow hooks. you only need some longer bolts. and buy the strongest bolts that you can find.
