Anyone have a Warn semi-hidden winch mount on their truck?

I found someone selling a Warn semi-hidden winch mount but I'm curious if anyone here has one, and if so, any chance of posting some pics of it. I'm wondering how it looks since it pushes the bumper out about 5 inches.
I'd be interested in seeing some pics looking down from the top and straight on from the side (as well as any other pics you might have).
If anyone has one, please post of some pics if you could (or send me a link to them or via email)

I've already got a Milemarker 12k winch that I could put in it since I figure that would be better than the 9k pound superwinch and warn winches I have)

One thing I don't like is that it I'd have to lose the fog lights but I guess I could mount some other lights elsewhere.

thanks
Bruce

i dont have any pics but i have seen it personally and i honestly dont like... unless you mouned some lights on teh top of the bumper to make it look a lil better but 5" is alot to move it out and not do something with it

There is some kind of trim kit that Warn makes that would be included with it which help bridge the gap between the bumper and the grill but I'm still not sure if it would look too funny.

I didn't have teh side trim on mine, and did have alight bar, but i feel it was hardly noticable, people who didnt know it was there occasionally mentioned somethign looked funyn about the way my bumper sat on the side but couldn't put a finger on it, didn't look as strange on the side as many aftermarket bumpers, IMO.

that being said, my new truck came with an HD bumper and no winch mount, since i need to buy a new bumper anyway to mount my winch, i will most likely end up with an iron bull instead of the warn kit and a new stock bumper...

I have the semi-hidden kit on my '07 F350, Warn 16.5 winch. It of course doesn't look as good as stock but it's much better than the non-stock bumpers with the winch exposed, at least to me.

I'm happy to post some pictures for you, but it will be a week or so before I can as I'm leaving tomorrow morning for a week on the beach in Mexico.
