    I really don't have any real recommendations for brand, but I would shy away from any where the winch is hidden. If a cable gets pinched you need to get at it so you can get it loose to unspool.

    If this is the one you looked at, it is the same basic design as mine except I have a front hoop and larger skid plate

    It appears to be an add on type of bumper. But 3/16" steel is plenty heavy enough. You don't need to make a land anchor
