Default Ideas for mounting winch

Hi guys, I am wanting to mount a 10,000 lb - 15,000 lb winch on my front bumper. It appears to be a custom bumper, it was already on the truck when I bought it so not sure, but it is very similar to a ranch hand legend. I don't have a winch yet. Haven't bought one because I don't know for sure how I would mount it. I need to decide how to mount it before buying one so I make sure whatever winch I end up getting isn't too big. My dilemma is that I can't mount one in the center underneath that bar because that's where my license plate goes. I'm thinking about cutting a section out of the skid plate underneath the bumper, adding a horizontal shelf for it to sit on that's recessed back into the skid plate a bit, and bolting it to that, but not sure if that will be sturdy enough. Also not sure if that will be enough space for the size winch I need. The other thing I thoight of is getting a mounting track and just bolting it straight to the outside of the skid plate and mounting the winch to that. If I did that it would be at a downward angle though, and I'm not sure if that would affect the performance of the winch. Let me know what your thoughts are, or if you have any other ideas. Thanks!
