The hidden winch is ridiculously easy to add on, even if you dont want a winch this is a very nice steel bumper that is stealth

I am installing a Mile Marker Si12000 winch with a dyneema based hybrid rope. I am using Factor55 pieces (1" hawse fairlead, ultrahook)

I don't know for certain, but, I'm guessing it probably would.

I had a Black Horse brush guard before, they really offer very little in the way of protection for the front end - unless you're just adding it for looks.

Yes I like the look of the 4xguard setup, and like that it offers a little front end protection, but I also have a winch laying around that u was going to put on my xj..... So I was just throwing around some ideas.

Well, since the Steel Armadillo Hidden winch Mount bumper fits completely under the factory bumper cover - and remembering how my black horse brush guard was installed, I can't think of any reason why you couldn't install both.

No update? Where did you get those headlights and how much did they cost? Were they plug and play?
