Best winch for an ORF bumper

Looking to invest in a winch. I have an orf bumper, not to sure if its for a winch or not.... It does have 2 bolt holes on top which is where i figure you can mount one. Im looking at a Warn winch i believe 8000. Here is a picture of my bumper. Let me know if anyone has this bumper and what you recomend

Winches mount with four so that won't work. Don't drill it without consulting the manufacturer. Winches pull hard and that bumper may not take it. Failure in use would be very, very, bad.

SafetyThird is correct. You'll need a Winch Plate to mount a winch on your Jeep. You can't just mount it to those holes. A proper winch plate will bolt through the bumper and into the frame. You need this strength to be able to use the winch safely and effectively. You should be able to use any universal winch mount with some drilling and trimming. Let me know if you have any questions!
