Confused Is the any such thing as a winch bracket or hardware to mount a winch on the WJ with out changing the stock bumper??? I saw a picture of the '06 GC with a winch mounted behind the stock bumper with only a roller fairlead out the front. Any suggestions or links I can't find???? furious

Did you see it on the street or in a magazine? On the the street it could be a hidden hitch front reciever mount winch. In a magazine it was probably custom- $EMA money custom. By the way, if you do mount a winch to one of those front recievers, take it off or put it on the back when you're on the street. You can't see them over the hood, and my incident with one cost me my winch, my mount, and $600 to repair a bumper.

Or of course it could have just been a roller fairlead mounted to the bumper- for show.
