Not the best idea, adjusting the bumper would be my choice, slotting mounting holes on either the bumper, or winch mounting would be my choice. This will take some heavy duty power tools to do this.
I'll take a better look @ the bumper this evening after work to see what my options are for trying to get it out a little further.

If the rope is touching and the grille is fastened firmly , you could shim the bumper forward . You can also run the cable out of the side of the cover

How’d you do this?

Just a note if you decide to use the DV8 spacers. They push it out 2", but if there are any secondary brackets used to install the bumper (winch plate or bar support as on my RR) it may make those brackets not fit.

Had the same problem with a Warn plate. Does anyone have the link for the mentioned thread about taking the wires out the side?

+1 for spacers. Same thing happened with my aftermarket bumper and winch. Added in a 3/4" spacer on each side and all is good now.

If you use a spacer , make sure your plate is tied into the frame . The only thing worse than being hit with a rope , is being hit with the whole bumper/winch assembly
