I won't take credit for the idea and you have probably seen it from others already but I couldn't find the thread. Here is my take on it:

This is the pre-fit before I weld the fairlead spacer onto the winch plate. I think the winch plate is just a flat TJ winch plate that I cut down a bit.


Here is the winch plate with the fairlead spacer welded on. I think it was 3" wide as I recall.


Another pre-fit. Notice the v-slots I had to cut in the bumper mount. This is so I could slip a wrench in.


Primer:


Finally bolted on and painted. I used just flat paint for the bumper mount and painted the winch plate with bedliner.


Cut the bumper metal and plastic:


Here it is with the bumper back on:


This shows the winch below. Notice the two cuts:


And the finished product:

Oh I forgot to add a couple of pics:

I added a 500 amp in-line fuse, a 500amp relay to allow me to switch off the power from the cab and I moved the main winch relay into the engine compartment:

Nice ... I like stealth accessories. Hiding winches like that makes it tough to get a neat wind. I guess with the synthetic line a neat wind isn't as important as it is with steel cable.

Nice work, I hate to ask what that 500a relay and fuse cost.[ I assume you have a spare fuse or two?

Thanks, I can't remember the costs anymore but ya the relay ain't cheap. I do have another fuse too. Fortunately I haven't needed it yet but I haven't really put much use on the winch yet.

Actually I haven't found it that hard to wind up at all. It's a synthetic line and I just keep a tight pull on it when winding it in.
