NEW JEEPER! Bumper and Winch Upgrade Advice!

New Jeeper here!

FINALLY bought my DREAM truck.
2009 Jeep Wrangler X Sport Utility 2D 4WD

Black soft top
V6, 3.8 liter
Sunburst Orange color

Infinity speakers

Alloy wheels
4:88 gearing (re-geared for the larger tires)

17” rims
Tires: Nitto-Terra Grappler A/T P285/70R17


So my first upgrades:
BUMPER -
I really like the Body Armor JK-1951, or even the JK-19531 Front Bumper

Any thoughts on those?? Prefer one over the other??

Also, I am investing in a winch. I KNOW they are worth it. My question is this: I am trying to figure out if I should invest in a
X2O 8,000 lb. Amphibious Winch
orrr... a Engo 77-09000 9,000lb 12 volt

I don't plan on putting a snorkel on my Jeep - however, I do live in the northwest and it will get it's fair share of rain. Would it be worth it to invest in an amphibious winch? Or would a regular one hold up??

There are SOOO many dealers out there. I've been surfing a few but mainly stayed on 4wheelparts.com because I know the company. Any other dealers that are reliable and might have better deals?

Hoping to keep this to under $1,100 for both the winch and bumper. Hope.
