    The hidden winch is from Undercoverhwms - http://undercoverhwms.com/wp/

    All I did was add some recovery shackle mounts to the winch bumper and cut out the bumper for it. I too like the look of the stock bumper, so this gave me the best of both worlds - till I tag a rock at least :)

    Incredibly well done. So clean. I didn't even notice the Shackles were there and that the valence was cut.

    The undercoverhwms system basically just replaces the factory aluminum bumper behind the plastic cover. 8 large bolts right to the frame, and the winch mount is as strong or stronger than a plate bumper.

    I am ordering one of the undercover hitches soon and am wondering what your winch mount looks like. I was intending to use a 2" receiver winch mount hanging off the front but WOW you have a really nice setup. Interested to know how you did the shackle mounts too. Please post additional information or PM me.

    Unfortunately I wasn't able to get good pics of the mount before installing it - but undercoverhwms.com has plenty of pics. I just added the shackle mount kit from OKOffroad - http://www.okoffroad.com/stuff-bsm-xd-shackles.htm
