    FJ40, Saginaw conversion, new Shackle reversal. How do I hand a new front bumper? Want to add bumper and front winch but the front bumper (horns) are now full of stuff and I can't figure out where to mount the brackets or bumper.

    Any help or pics would be appreciated.

    check out my drawing here.

    the thread is called "front bumper mount" (i started it)

    this is how i'm going to do mine.
    i'm mounting a warn and it should be plenty
    strong with only 4 bolts.

    Im doing the same thing. my plan is almost the same except i plan on welding the "frame extentions" (see drawing) to the bumper and bolting to the frame 4 bolts per side. also im using 4x6 1/4inch wall box tube and pockting the winch into the bumper

    i'll finish the model (with the winch and everything)
    and update the post.
    i've already made most of my brackets, and i think the
    3/8 steel for extentions and angle brackets are going
    to be overkill now that i look at them.
