I realize this is an old post, but FYI I have a 2012 Jeep Wrangler and use the Blue OX tow bar and base plate and have the stock bumper.  I then later added a Rough Country winch plate.  This uses the mounting base of the factory bumper mounted hooks which are removed.  You end up with the winch mounted right up top where it should be and it looks great.  If anyone is interested I will post a picture.

Another bumper you may want to consider is the LoD out of IN. Mine is coming in Tuesday via FedEx.
They weld on the Blue Ox tabs for FREE. Other towbar brands also (Roadrunner or?)

The one I am getting is their full width bumper, and as soon as I get it I will try to post a picture. Not getting the winch for now, down the road who knows? At least I will be set up for it.

[/quoteI am very interested in your setup. I would like to keep the stock bumber in place and add a winch. I installed the blue ox base plate myself WITHOUT removing the bumber or disconnecting any wiring. Works great!!]
