Default Winch w/stock bumper

I am contemplating attempting to incorporate a winch using my stock bumper. I don't want to put on an aftermarket bumper. I know a few members have done this, so was looking for pics on how this was done and the finished product. Thanks.

You could use a front hitch and a receiver winch mount.

I had thought about that. Just wasn't sure how well it would work with my bull bar on as well. I am assuming I would have to use an extension tube to clear the bull bar.
