What are everyone's opinions? Front hidden hitch or Slimline bumper? I off road occasionally and would like the security of a winch but not sure which route to go. I don't really want a full front bumper, and I don't want to cut the main bumper for one yet either. I'm kind of leaning towards a Slimline because of the possibility of doing an SSO Slimline and the clearance cuts later.
I went SSO slime line hybrid and really like it. I'm in the same boat an elected to go with the slime line rather than cutting the entire bumper. Made more sense for me plus I get a winch which is very helpful.
