Also take into consideration that most bumpers that accept an integrated solenoid winch are going to be bigger bulkier bumpers. Since the solenoid body would normally sit on top of the winch the winch mount and or bumper has to be mounted out further from the grill and the winch will sit lower and ultimately the whole bumper hangs lower to the ground reducing ground clearance, approach angle, and increasing the times you are going to be banging into something with it. Look at the bumpers that use remote mounted solenoid bodies and you will see bumpers that are more form fitting to the front of the FJ and greatly increase ground clearance and approach angle. There are quality bumpers made in both styles this is just something else to pay attention to when bumper shopping.
