|CSM41||Nice bumper! I have the Engo 9000 lb winch on my TJ and while it isn't the fanciest thing on the market, it surely plods along and does its job without complaint. Never had a problem with mine and I've used it on many occasions.|

Thats a DAGGER!
Still SOOOO mean,
I like the half sunk winch in the crusader, but the dagger is a lighter option. Also a very cool design.

Here it is. Our JCR mid-width bumper install.

When you receive the bumper from JCR you can expect it to be covered in an oily substance. I rubbed mine down with mineral spirits and a brillo pad made for metal polishing.
The prep is easy, but is a little time consuming if your a perfectionist like I am with my Jeep.
You'll see some light scratches and marks in the bumper, I was agonizing over them a little. even sanded some out, then when i sprayed it with one coat of primer/paint in one can from rustoleum, they disappeared. So dont judge the bare steel too harshly. Once painted, they look great. Powder coat would probably be even better.
I painted mine for about 12 bucks being 2 cans of the spray paint.

I know the regulars here know this already, so bare with me while I educate the Rookies.
You cannot pick your bumper until you figure out what your plan is for the flares. The look of your rig is based on those two components if you pick a full length bumper, your going to look stupid with flat flares.
If you keep your stock flares and go with a stubby front bumper, i personally think that looks awful also.
I have the painted flares that I paid $100 extra for when I bought the truck. Then I xpel wrapped them so they wouldnt scratch. (added expense, and the flares are hard to wrap).
I like cut flares, but im scared to death to do it myself. There's a guy in this forum who did a GREAT job on his and he lives about an hour from me, so if I ever do cut them, Im going to take the trip and buy that guy a pizza.
I was looking for something in between. I LOVE JCR's Stubby, but without a sure plan for flat flares, I was afraid that they would never happen and my truck would look stupid with full flares and stubby bumper.
This pick "mid width" was the solution. Its wide enough to not make my flares look silly, but short enough that I could passably go to flatties later or cut mine and still have it look good.
If you've got flatties, look at JCR's Stubby, The crusader. I think its super cool with the winch half sunk.

JCR Crusader Mid Width Bumper Engo e9000 Winch
You knew I loved the Engo e9000 winch, but what I didnt love was my stock front bumper. It was cool for a while, but it had been on for 15 months and we did the hidden winch install wich preserved its coolness longer, but its time to upgrade. I wanted something that wouldn't block the grill too much because I had the SuperCharger coming, and also I would hit the front bumper with the tires at full articulation. The half sunk crusader mid with was a great pick. I'm very happy with the way it came out.
I took about 1000 pics when we did the install, you can see all of them on facebook-
Here's a before and After
