I have that same bumper as well and my only concern is the thickness of the winch mounting plate area itself. I did a light test pull when I re-spooled my rope and the whole thing flexed enough to make me nervous..., Mine came on the Jeep and I can't afford to do an ARB at the moment with the other projects I have going, so my plan is to build a 3/16 plate that will fit between the bumper and the frame, using the same mountain points as the bumper and winch.
It'll be a 30 dollar project and make this a pretty solid piece.
Capt Ron, I did the internal wiring as well for my Piaa 80's and holy crap that was a pain... Lol
