Default Need this for my 2012 RAM 1500 SL

This is what I am looking to do on my 2012 Dodge RAM 1500 SL. The only problem is it looks like I will have to cut the bumper skin in order to get the receiver up as high as I am wanting it. Don't like the receivers that hang low or under the bumper. Does anyone have any ideas on how to install I front winch receive on a 2012 RAM 1500 SL.

Not too sure on how they couldnt pull you out either. I managed this last weekend. Hell my rear bumper was on the ground, darn D-Ring (which is under water) was laying horizontal on the ground! Buddy has an identical truck as me darn near idled me out. No more showing out in 2wd for this guy, Swampers facked me

That looks like a lot of fun - in *your* truck. Makes me cringe thinking about doing that in mine!

Not to thread jack but a few people have posted that having mud terrain tires would've muddied the truck more. Is that true? If so, is that in their design? Sling the mud out from under the truck to get to solid ground? If anyone could clarify for me that'd be great, thanks!
