But tell him how much fun it is to thread the tiny little nuts on the tiny little threads.... I'm 6'5" and couldn't even feel the dang things on my finger tips. Use threadlock so you don't have to toque down too hard and crack the plastic housing.

I replaced the 9145 bulbs too. I was almost at 36,000 miles at the swap and figured they'd be going soon.

There are winch plates to fit the stock bumper.
The stocker is a plastic escutcheon that covers a semi-bent mid-width piece of U-shaped angle steel. A winch plate that can bridge the frame rails will do the trick.
But you'd still be left with a bunch of plastic --- and trust me, the plastic is easy to dimple on trees and stuff...

h2otoo Nice looking setup. Like that red rock red, too. Are they the factory fog lights in there? If yes, did they fit right in the bumper with no problem?

Yes; Procomp 1059 polished. They weren't my first pick but the price was ridiculously low and I couldn't pass it up.

front about a half inch; rear a little less.
Hoping that the new springs correct it and lift about a 1/2" too...

Finally did bumpers and winch

I have some springs in the garage ready to go in too; the extra weight makes it droop...

Over the weekend I added RR bumpers and SB winch. I had to move the lights and used an AtoZ mount.
It all works pretty well. Did my first pull on our MINI:
