    Will this brush guard be strong enough to support a winch? Because this is much cheaper than these other aftermarket bumpers. Opinions please.

    No, that one will not. its simple, if the brush guard comes with a spot to bolt a winch then yes, if not then no. some of them do have designated winch mounts, many dont thought. this is not complicated problem. the item detail on whatever web site you look at will tell if you can put a winch on it, you just have to shop around. it looks like most of the brush guards with winch mounts are only 100-200 cheaper than a full plate bumper. so if you are going that route might as well just get the plate or a tube bumper.
