Need some help next weekend..

Alright guys so ive spent the last 3 nights cramming a 10k winch in a factory bumper and I've got it all buttoned back up but I'm not too sure about the strength of the end result.. Using winch plate from harbor freight bolted to frame so it plenty sturdy, just the fairlead sketches me out a bit.. Looking for someone who wants to lend a hand and some ideas the first weekend in nov. Heres the end product

Were is Wesley Chapel, FL. Never heard of it.

edit: never mind... google is my friend.
If you were closer, i'd lend a hand.

My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to 99 a can. That's almost $7.00 in dog money.

Does mental help count? I could possibly help next friday or saturday. As long as the wife doesn't have a problem.
