    Depends on how big you go. If you are going 37s or bigger I believe youll have to get a stubby front bumper.

    Personally. Wheels and a lift. It you want to keep your stock bumper. Verticaly Driver Products makes end caps that looks like a stock bumper. But shorter. I have them on my rig. They look pretty cool.

    Think about it this way: you need the wheels and lift first in order to get stuck. The winch mod will only get you unstuck.
