Winch Mount Options

I've recently received my new 2.5" lift and rock sliders. Next on my list of wants is a winch. I don't do enought hard offroading to justify spending ~$1000 on a new front bumper w/ a winch mount. I'm wondering if anyone has some links to websites that will allow me to mount a winch and keep my original bumper (or at least parts of it ). This is my DD vehicle, so I would like it to maintain as much bumper and "civilized look" as possible.

I did some searching for about 30 minutes yesterday and didn't find much. I'm thinking I might have to design and fabricate something myself. But figured I would ask the community first.

Very possible. But I hope you can weld. I have seen it done on jc and ju. You will have to modify and cut the jeep.

The problem with that is it sits down so low and forward it DESTROYS the approach angle of the Jeep. I was hoping someone already has a concept that didn't do that.
