Need winch plate?

I'm getting a 8000 lb winch, by the picture can you tell if I need a winch plate? There's a close up on my profile page.

Life is about choices - the more choices you have the better your life is.

Well it looks like whom ever made that front bumper welded two flat supports there for the purpose of a winch....But I don't know if I'd trust those two little strips of metal to have HIGH amounts of stress and weight pulling on them.
