Safari Gard bumper

Can someone with experience with these bumpers explain to me how the winch bolts nearest the radiator are accessed. It appears the bolts are inside a cross beam between the frame rails? I think that even if the bumper were entirely removed I couldn't access the bolts to take the winch off.

All of this so I can replace the fairlead because I switched to rope and the old bolts aren't long enough to secure the fairlead. Fantastic.

Thanks

Which version do you have, Husky or Warn? You should be able to get to the back bolts if you remove the skid plate. Worst case you could remove the brushbar.

It's a Warn M 8000.

When you took the bumper off, were the bolts accessible or did you have to remove anything to get to the ones nearest the radiator?

Thanks
