    The US Offroad one.... it seems like it would be hard on your winch line.

    Does the recent Warn semi-hidden count? Winch is hidden, but there's a bit more obvious going on out front.

    SSO is a great option, probably 120lbs with a Smittybuilt X20C.

    Good thread.

    I have never been able to decide if a permanent front mounted winch or a receiver mount is ideal for that rare case I need to self recover from behind as well. Since I try not to be off road on too technical a trail alone it further complicates the winch option.

    Anyone know if you can run a lower bumper light bar (even if brackets were modified) with a SDHQ or CBI hidden winch mount?

    Doubt it. I don't think the bracket mounting points are the issue. A winch occupies the same space as the light bar would. I have the lower bumper lightbar and it takes up all the space down there along with the transmission cooler.

    Probably best thing to do is move the lightbar up and behind the grill.
