winch bumper

hey guys. Ive got a winch bumper off a 98 grand Cherokee , I previously owned, I was going to put on my 99 ranger. Its a 2x4 and im not looking to making it look like a 4x4 but I am an avid outdoorsman and not a fan of walking. lol Modifications to make it fit is relatively minor. Just looking for some opinions to see if you guys think a winch and bumper would be to much weight on the front end of a 2x4. I also am not sure what putting the bumper on will do to my airbag sensor or if I should just disconnect it. When I put it on my grand Cherokee it showed me how to put it on to be compatible with the air bag sensor but that paper works has sence long disappeared. lol Any input would be appreciated.

Didn't think bumpers had any sensors on them. Least when I took off the bumper on my 99, I know I didn't have to disconnect anything (other then the fog lights). That's a 4x4 but no idea why the airbag sensor would be different on the 2x4.

As for weight, I would imagine a bumper made for a Cherokee isn't going to weigh much more then the stock Ranger Chrome bumpers regardless of it's aftermarket or not. I'd say you'll be fine.
