Yes indeed!

You guys are really great! . . . . I'm learning a lot . . . getting a LOT of education before I hit the dealer's.

I know I'm in the right place here!

All best, Joe

Triel Thanks for the input above. I've seen the write up that a couple of people have done to modify the bumper to accept a winch such as sharkbyte, and Aelwero's, and it looks like it's within my capabilities, but before I pull the bumper and start cutting away, I wanted to make sure that there were no surprises in store for me. I'm looking for tips such as mounting the winch to the plate before mounting the plate to the jeep. Also this tool worked well, this one was a waste of time, effort and/or money type stuff. Thanks for the help

NHrubicon Most winch mounting plates will go over 'stock' bumpers with no cutting...there are 'raised' winch mount plates for that, that will bolt into existing holes on jeeps, I know...used them. Just check the online catalog outfits, offroad suppliers, etc.
As soon as you 'cut into' a stock bumper you have weakened that bumper and it isn't going to hold up when you run into a rock or a tree...keep that in mind!

I saw a complete write up with pictures and steps and directions on another forum, but I dont remember which one or where. Sorry. I'll keep an eye out for it.
