Jose, they make a mounting bracket for F-150 so it is pretty hidden, the winch barely sticks out, changed my mind about maybe getting one now.

Saw this a few threads down! Googled a few parts on it, can be had for $300 or so.

Rope is lighter, easier to work with, and safer than a steel cable. I have the Superwinch Talon 9500lb.

I've been trying to ride that line between "nice truck" and "trail rig" for a while, but it's getting time to make sacrifices in order to get more serious on the rocks.
AMP has the XL version of the power step that has an integrated rock rail. I don't know how much protection it has compared to a traditional rail, but at least you get some protection and a power step.
