Hi all! Just after some advise and pointers. Going to be building myself a tube styled front bar. Only got two weekends to do it! My 80 has the factory winch and winch cradle so won’t be mounting the winch into the new bar. I’m planning on building off the factory cradle and boxing it in.
Has anyone done this? If so any advise would be much appreciated.
Thanks legends

^^^ @synapse tube bumper is nice, and I am not a fan of tube units - that center section is sharp.

A few fill-in triangle plates / holes for the LED’s & that would be my fav bumper.

The open area? Eventually will build ducting to force air to radiator, larger trans cooler, and/or front mount intercooler(most likely going w2a though).

Oh heck - I take that back then. Diverter scoops for however you’re going to force air is bigtime > aesthetic steel plates that just guard from stick intrusion.
