You are not going to be able to have any bumper that does At least partially block the camera with a wild track.

The only winch mount that does not block the camera is the RC But it doesn't work on 2.7 engines.

So technically, the answer is none. But there are bumpers that don't block the camera as bad as others.

And I believe many of them accommodate most of the sensors. It's the ACC that can possibly cause you grief.

Lots of subjectiveness in this question.. lots of options... different uses, different priorities and different work around for ACC, Camera and parking sensors

No blocking here. Body guard bumper relocates camera under light bar and cruise control radar is relocated and has all four sensors. Bumper also comes with black hardware not just silver
Really good video if you do it yourself is Buckle up buttercup instal video

I was just about to order the DV8 but this design looks a lot tighter!

Im getting the BG bumpers because not only do the look amazing. I don’t loose any of the features on the bronco I paid for.

I'm not a fan of that boxy look with sharp corners, doesn't fit the Bronco IMO, I'm gonna wait longer to see what else might show up. Looks too much like angry eyes jeeps and wannabe stealth fighter jets to me.

I'm also sometimes wondering if it would not be possible to mount the winch somewhere under the truck and run the cable/rope in some way to the front? Really don't like that giant wart of a winch hanging off the front, messes up the look for me. There are all kinds of winch/pulley systems out there where the actual winch/cable roll is elsewhere, cranes, elevators, cable cars. Should be possible. to hide it underneath if there's room somewhere.
I might just opt for a front hitch receiver and use a winch mounted on a hitch plate, that way I can take it off and leave it in the garage when I don't need it, wich is 99.9% of the time for me. Plus I could use it on the back too.

But I'm in no rush, it'll be a long while before my Bronco sees any trail that even remotely might need a winch.
