Never Monday get a winch plate and drop it on the stock bumper. Works great and saves weight.

whiteyj X2 on the winch mounting plate. It has nothing to do with the front bumper. The winch mounts to the plate which bolts to the frame not the bumper.

slf41002 If you are talking about the front bumper alone NO!The bumper by itself is not strong enough to hold the strain from a winch or what a winch can pull.You will need a mounting plate for the winch that bolts to the frame with the same four upper bolts that the bumper is held on by.The plate will set back front the bumper some and is solid steel instead of cold roll like the bumper.
