so after driving around town for months with nothing on the front of my rig it was finally time to build a custom bumper. here are a few pics of the process and the final deal. p.s. if you like it i'll make you one.
my plans for a winch on this is just a simple top mount. on my mock up i did have s large area cut out so you could put the winch down inside the bumper with the fairlead coming out the front. that would also mean i would need to put a lower plate across the bottom to mount the winch to.
