Default 2009+ 1500 Winch Options

Has anyone installed a winch on their '09+ 1500 yet? I've been looking around at getting one, but haven't come up with too much info. I searched, but didn't come up with anything here, so I figured why not ask the knowledgeable people here.

I have a 2010 TRX4, and want to do a behind the bumper mount.

I've come across bullbar/brush guard mounts, entire front bumper mounts, front end receiver mounts, but nothing regarding mounting a plate/cradle to the frame for these trucks.

Crawling underneath the front end, it seems that there would be more than enough room to mount a winch behind the front bumper. I guess this is how the Power Wagons come mounted? And I'm also guessing things will be a little different between the 2500 and the 1500.

Anyone have experience or advice with the above? I know there's always the option to fab my own, but I'm not sure what would be needed, or how much this would cost to have done, as I don't trust my own welding skills enough to do something like this yet.

Thanks.

ETA: Not sure if this would be the right thread for this, as I didn't see a general 4th gen thread.

I found 2 real options. But the warn transformer gen II bumper or a front under bumper receiver. Curt manf makes a front bumper receiver and they also make a winch plate. Together it might run you 200. Then all you need is a winch. It will definately hender your approach angle. Im goin up 6" soon with 37s so it won't hurt it too bad!

I have searched all the winch mfg's and called the warn and superwinch cs lines. No one has anything as a prefab install (kit). What I have come up with is a warn universal mount plate and find a good welder that you can trust and build the rest. We have gotten as far as all the measuring and my welder is laying out the plate steel. We thought it best to tie in to the tow hooks mounts, bumper mounts, and the stock skid plate for support and to add an additional skid plate from the bumper all the way to the front suspension cross member. I will post the pics when finished
