I finally found one, anyone install this yet? Does it work well? I had though the plastic bumper could not mount a winch but maybe it can?

For a little more money you could just get a dv8 and be done with it

I honestly don’t like the look of any of those aftermarket bumpers. I really like the look of the plastic bumper actually.

Now the question is, What is the best winter for the money? I don’t plan on using it very often but I wanted to work when I do you have to use it. Would you guys like? Warn?

I have the RH-90205 on a 2018 Rubicon, paired with a BADLANDS 12000 winch,so far so good! Don’t forget a shovel & a snatch block!

I ran a Smittybilt synthetic on my JK and actually used it several times. Its half the cost of a Warn and worked fine for me. Now you’ll get the Smittybilt haters and say Warn is the best, which IM not doubting at all. However if you plan on hardly ever using it get a cheaper one. The Smittybilt X20 10k synthetic is what I ran and it was great. Unless of course moneys no issue for ya. Good luck with everything!

There was a thread here where someone cut a notch out of the top of the plastic bumper to accommodate a winch.

Yep it's in the DIY write-up section. I necro'd it back to life just recently, found it by searching the forum

.....and wow just clicked on the RH link in post #2. That thing is hideous, but hey you won't need to block off the radiator for extra heat in the winter months....
