a friend has a winch on a warn mounting plate behind the same bumper i have. he only had to cut off the little metal stripes at the bumper where the lights can be mounted.

cant you cut it and extend it? I know my local welder or muffler shop would weld something like this (bumper) for possibly 25 bucks
